The Illinois State Police posted the Week 7 number from the so-called “Protect Illinois Communities Act” a couple of days late. Frankly, we expected they were going to start burying the very worrisome numbers. Why? They represent a giant embarrassment for the Governor and his merry band of gun grabbing jihadists.
“How dare they not comply with our edicts passed in the middle of the night at the last minute!”
An additional 650 Land of Lincoln gun owners took the plunge and registered at least one of their now banned self-defense firearms, bringing the total number to 4089 who have “complied.” Considering there are 2,415,481 FOID holders, that brings the total compliance rate to, brace yourself: .1692%.
In other words, 99.83% of Illinois gun owners have declined to comply at this point in time.
Happy Thanksgiving, folks.
