While the effect of the ordinance would be on the kids, the cause for it wasn't. It says right in the article: In 2012, there were 19 reports to the Burlington Police Department of a person carrying a gun that turned out to be a toy gun. In 2013, there were 26. “The idea was, if the problem continues, it’s gonna be a matter of time until we actually end up with a confrontation with somebody…

The same applies to saying our measurements now match those earlier (especially to the precision they're claiming). Also applies to the hockey stick graph not going back far enough which is just like saying local/current temps are not indicative because they aren't long enough or wide enough. Temperature collection outside the U.S. was really bad until satellites came along.

People with common sense spoke out and they voted the proposed ordnance down. They forgot swords, meat cleavers, cattle prods and brass knuckles. They were in effect banning kids from playing cowboys & Indians. That's probably not PC anymore anyway.

GOP: Don't use tax dollars for Obama library

Say $100 million in taxpayer dollars shouldn't be used for Obama library (from pantagraph.com)

SPRINGFIELD — Two Central Illinois lawmakers say taxpayer dollars should not be used to build a presidential library for Barack Obama.

Republican state Reps. Bill Mitchell of Forsyth and Adam Brown of Champaign filed legislation this week that would reject a proposal endorsed by House Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago, to spend $100 million in state construction money to help build the library in Chicago.

Mitchell said the state cannot afford such a move.

"How in the world could these Chicago politicians think it's a good idea to spend $100 million of public funds on the Obama Library? This is an outrageous waste of taxpayer dollars," Mitchell said in a prepared statement.

Brown said private funds should be used to build the library.

"President Obama has raised billions for his campaigns and we feel his foundation should raise the money needed to bring the Obama Library to Chicago. No taxpayer dollars should be used for this project," Brown noted in a statement issued Tuesday morning.

The legislation is House Resolution 1118.
