Gun rights victories in Illinois

In short, this--Illinois House Bill 48--was the great hope for the Illinois citizen disarmament lobby, and it went down in flames Wednesday (pdf file). This was due in very large part to the hard work of thousands of Illinois gun owners, led by the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA), and kept informed and motivated by IllinoisCarry.com.

Yesterday, the gun prohibitionists suffered another ignominious defeat when their "safe storage" law, which in light of this, some might call the "Axe Murderer Empowerment Act," also went down in flames (pdf file). This may very well have been the other side's second greatest hope. [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Hope to see you there.
