db1998 - Shooting near 8th and York - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Let's just hope that certain people aren't involved. Like the mother of a little boy that was murdered last spring. Her name was all over the scanner this morning. That would be a sad little circle if she was somehow involved in this. She has a black car, and lives right where the car was stopped. hopefully we have come a little farther in life than that. Please.
WarCry - Seven Dead, 34 Hurt In Weekend Shootings In Chicago - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Chicago no longer has the toughest gun laws in the country. Regarding handguns, they have the same laws as the rest of the state. That was part concealed carry law in 2013, eliminating "home rule" laws regarding handguns. It doesn't matter, though, because regardless of what gun laws are in place or not, it's still illegal to shoot people in almost all circumstances.

GuyFawkes10 - Senate takes rare Sunday votes, but real drama is GOP leaders\' rebuke of Cruz - Quincy, IL News - Q
One of he few that stands up for what he believes. I don't think any want to take him on head to head but hide behind the procedural rules. Senate is a joke with McConnell, no better than Reid. He lied to get re elected in his state so why would Senate be different?
pjohnf - McConnell Angers Conservatives By Blocking Defunding Planned Parenthood, Kate’s Law - Quincy,
Makes one wonder if McConnell is a republican or the new democrat Harry Reid? McConnell apparently supports the baby butchers, illegal alien criminals, crony capitalism through E/I bank and obstructive legislative leadership. In other words, nothing has changed in congress with the GOP in charge.

The GOP Senate is Not On Our Side

4 hours, 45 minutes ago

We have reached the point where a clear majority of sitting Republican Senators do not deserve your vote even in the general election.

Missing in Action: Where is Rand Paul?

My single biggest surprise this election season is the failure of [mc_name name='Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)' chamber='senate' mcid='P000603' ] to do much of anything. He has loyal support, a unique message, a foundation laid by his father, a cheery disposition, and a really crummy campaign team. Put it to…
