So, just so you know, the Illinois General Assembly has launched a jihad to take away the stigma of gun-related criminal convictions.  Instead of putting violent offenders in prison to take them out of circulation (and to keep the productive members of society safer to raise their families unmolested by criminal predators), the Illinois Black Caucus want to safeguard the rights of those criminal predators with this jihad upon stigma.

Actually, Dems want to do change the descriptors for a lot of crimes.  More on that in a moment.  For right now, let’s talk guns.

So those convicted of unlawful use of weapons will now be able to say they were convicted of illegal possession of a firearm.  Given the soft-on-crime contingent an inch and they’ll take a mile.  So they added an amendment to change what used to be a habitual firearm offender to the kinder, gentler “unlawful possession of a firearm by a repeat felony offender.”

From The Center Square:

(The Center Square) – The Illinois Legislature continues to change the definitions of things in the context of criminal charges by approving a measure Saturday changing the name of the charge for illegal possession of a firearm.

In January, state Rep. Kam Buckner, D-Chicago, filed House Bill 4500 to change various firearm possession charges to get away from being labeled unlawful use of a firearm charges. He argued in a committee earlier this year that some of those who are charged and convicted with being illegally in possession of a firearm but not using it in the commission of another crime were charged with unlawful use which carries a negative stigma.

Buckner was clear he was not intending to change the level of punishment with such a criminal conviction, just changing the title of the charge to more accurately reflect the offense.

The measure also originally provided for the changes to be made retroactive in the criminal background of those who were charged with unlawful use charges for mere illegal possession.

“This is prospective only. There will not be any obligation for law enforcement agencies to change records going back,” asked state Rep. Patrick Windhorst, R-Metropolis.

“That’s correct,” Buckner said Saturday during floor debate. “After some conversations and negotiations, we landed at a place where this is only prospective.”

Illinois state Reps. Kam Buckner, D-Chicago, and Patrick Windhorst, R-Metropolis, discuss House Bill 4500 that changes the title of a charge of unlawful use of a weapon to unlawful possession of a weapon.

Retroactivity was stripped from the measure with an amendment last month in the House and was passed 68-36.

In the Senate, another amendment was approved that changes the name of the offense of “persistent unlawful possession of a weapon” to “unlawful possession of a firearm by a repeat felony offender.” It passed unanimously in the Senate Wednesday.

Saturday, the House concurred on the Senate’s amendment and can now send the measure to the governor’s desk for further action.

The Illinois State Rifle Association is listed as a supporter as is the group Restore Justice.

For the record, Guns Save Life was approached for our endorsement of this bill.  We communicated our “neutral” stance.  Why not support this?  In all candor, I told them, “Those who are promoting this cannot be trusted not to have ulterior, far from altruistic motives.”

Earlier this week, the legislature approved House Bill 4409 that would add Illinois Department of Corrections representation to the alternative punishment Adult Redeploy Illinois oversight board, but it also changes the word “offender” to “justice-impacted individuals” for those in the program.  Republicans on the Senate floor said the name change could cost taxpayers thousands of dollars.

I teased that there is more to this jihad.

Second City Cop brought it to our attention.  The Contrarian really knocked it out of the park though.

Celebrating Chicago: Where Criminals Will Soon Become “Justice-Impacted Individuals”

I don’t know about you, but I engaged in many criminal activities in my twenty years in Chicago. I once misgendered my pedicurist in Uptown (“she” was Thai, and I could not tell if I was getting the MassaMAN or Panang, if you know what I mean). I also Zoom-bombed a struggle session as a psy-op at my kid’s prep school during COVID (suggesting an “alternative” reading list of real black scholars — you know, those with 2X Ibram X. Kendi’s IQ — while spraying my hair blue and screaming “blame the Zionists” on the live stream to intentionally confuse the audience). And to this date, I still put ketchup on my vegan dog at Wrigley Field.

But it’s good to know that I’ll no longer be a “felon,” “convict,’ or “criminal” if Governor One-Way-U-Haul signs a bill just put on his desk — passed by both Illinois houses already — that will turn all of us neer-do-wells into “justice-impacted individuals.” Specifically, Bill 4409 amends the Illinois Crime Reduction Act of 2009, Section 20, as follows: “When justice-impacted individuals [emphasis added] offenders are accurately assessed for risk, assets, and needs, it is possible to identify which people should be sent to prison and which people can be effectively supervised in the locality. By providing financial incentives to counties or judicial circuits to create effective local-level evidence-based services, it is possible to reduce crime and recidivism at a lower cost to taxpayers, etc.”

Unlike many of you cops, racists, Islamophobes and MAGA members in the audience (by Chicago standards, that includes RFK supporters, too), I find this bill to be a wonderful idea, a gateway to ushering in an entirely new branch of the English language that will show the path to an intersectional utopia, where bad means good, and good means bad (as it should be). In short: “Justice-impacted individuals” represents one small step for cisman, and one giant step for cismankind.

Carjack: “Unplanned Vehicle Redistributor” (UVR)

Murder: “Permanent Conflict Resolver” (PCR)

Assault: “Personal Space Violator” (PSV)

Rape: “Non-Consensual Intimacy Exchanger” (NCIE)

Theft: “Unilateral Asset Reallocator” (UAR)

Kidnap: “Involuntary Relocation Specialist” (IRS)

Arson: “Unplanned Property Renovator” (UPR)

Jew: “Very Bad Oppressive White Person” (VBOWP)

Close your eyes now and imagine a safe space where every “justice-impacted individual” finds their way back to the community (no bail required anymore!) as a “Permanent Conflict Resolver” or “Unilateral Asset Reallocator.

Yes, it’s glorious.

I’ll leave it to comments to suggest what these people would like to “relabel” gun owners.

  1. An old sheriff once told me, “there’s no winners in a pizz’n contest with a skunk.” I believe IL has an over abundance of skunks.

  2. People are leaving Illannoy by the tens of thousands because of high taxes and a boatload of other things, yet this is what our elected officials waste their time in Springfield on.
    God help us, because they sure won’t.
    Maybe it will take a black caucus member or two being murdered by one of these justice impacted individuals for them to wake up.

  3. I have a hard time trying to understand the ILL-Annoy legislature’s thoughts, but what I do understand is they don’t want “criminals” stigmatized with the fact that they are “criminals”, therefore, why do they not just write a law that “crimes” are not illegal and let anarchy be “the norm”? OOPS, that is what is happening in Chit-cago now, isn’t it?
    Pray for America, ILL-Annoy is lost to the Marxists already, sad to say. If we are lucky, this fall the democRAT–MARXIST convention will destroy Chit-cago and all democRAT ILL-Annoy politicians with it.
    Gun owners? aka: firearm enthusiasts!

  4. The Usual Suspects strike again! I ask what does the Il White Caucus think of this bullshit? Oh but that would be raciss’…. As Popeye said; “I am what I am.” with 59 years of experience professional and personal to back me up.
