You don't criticize anything this unqualified "Vice President" (by daddy's wave of his hand) has done. You make excuses for every thing that happens and blame others....Moore is a short white Obama. Inexperienced unqualified arrogant uneffective. And yet defend everything that happens on his watch and blame Obama for everything that happens on his. That's called intellectual dishonesty

According to an article from the local paper's website on Wednesday: Police Chief Rob Copley confirmed the two men were in custody for “a lengthy time.” “At that point, we did have them in and interrogated them regarding their possible involvement in the shooting,” he said. “We just didn’t have enough to hold them at that time.” Copley said Illinois law requires probable cause for people to…

All of these resignations and firings and yet we still have Bevelheimer? How is that possible? Watched him while he waited his turn at the local doctor's office - impatient, inconsiderate, rude to the nurses. I guess he thinks he's better than the rest of the patients sitting in the same waiting room?

Concealed carry of weapons on private property currently not allowed without permission

From myfoxchicago.com:

As Illinois gets ready to enact its new concealed carry law, Sen. Don Harmon of the 39th district is proposing that signs be put up that say businesses do allow guns inside.

Illinois Senate Bill 2669 is sponsored by the Democratic senator from Oak Park. Harmon said the legislation would amend the Firearm Concealed Carry Act, which currently states a person is not allowed to carry a concealed weapon onto private property without permission from the property owner.

The proposal would allow business owners to post clear signs at building entrances and other places on the premises indicating they do allow concealed firearms.

Nicole, a local representative of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, said she supports State Sen. Harmon's proposal.

She has found that in her neighborhood, some business owners that do not want guns in their stores are hesitant to post signs indicating firearms are not welcome. Nicole said the Illinois chapter of her organization believes they should have a right to choose, and that they should not feel showing their desire would be detrimental to business.

Nicole said she sees signs indicating gun-free zones are currently posted at her child's pre-school, and finds them to be a frightening reminder of the tragic mass-shooting of young children in Newtown, Conn. in 2012.

She told FOX 32 news that Senate Bill 2669 would render gun-free zone signs redundant and unnecessary at places like her child's school. She also said local businesses would benefit from posting positive signs as opposed to negative ones.
