Not even Illinois lawmakers are dumb enough to outlaw guns - huge backlash by public would sweep out DemsSubmitted by joeinmo on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 15:53
Illinois couldn't pass a gun ban, even trying for a semi-auto ban looks like it won't happen. The backlash on Democrats around the country would be swift. It would make the 2010 Republican sweep look tiny in comparison.
The overwhelming majority of Americans want guns (all of them) to be legal to own and buy. It's the one spot where Union members, the poor, the Libertarians, women and the GOP crush the opposition.
