Permission Slips

Spread out the Bill of Rights and give it a read. Which one of the rights listed require a government permission slip? I’m writing this post without a 1st Amendment permit, I don’t practice a religion, and I don’t need a permission to not participate, and the times I’ve been to Churches and Temples no permits needed.

My home is not permitted as a “Civilian Residence” so soldiers know they can’t be quartered there.

I don’t need to flash my permit that says Police need probable cause, or a legal warrant to search my person or property. Nor does such a permit exist that would allow me to side-step the TSA and their sexual deviants.

I could go on and on, but I think you know what I’m barking about. There are a few places where you NEED a permit to own a gun. Massachusetts and Illinois come to mind.

The program that issues mandatory ID cards to gun owners in Illinois would be discontinued under legislation proposed by state Sen. Sam McCann, R-Carlinville.

Senate Bill 3340 would repeal the Firearms Owner’s Identification Act. McCann said the act prevents law-abiding citizens from exercising their rights under the Second Amendment.

Residents must pay a $10 processing fee when they submit their FOID card application to the Illinois State Police. A FOID card lasts for 10 years.

“It just punishes the law-abiding public,” McCann said, adding that the law doesn’t stop criminals from getting their hands on guns.

These laws are blatantly unconstitutional. This crap needs to go, as does the law I’m under here in Massachusetts. I have the right to keep and bear arms, and unless you can find cause to remove said rights from me using due process, you have no say, nor are you due a cent of my money!

And from the antis:

Malte said criminals do buy guns from licensed owners and at gun shows, and the background checks that state and federal law require prevent them from doing so.

“The FOID card is a good way to weed out dangerous people, but more needs to be done,” Malte said.

“We need to go forward, not backwards.”

Yeah, that’s why Chicago is such a safe city! Antis aren’t normal, and don’t look for results, don’t mind us normal people who actually would care to be safer AND more free.

So good luck people, and if you live in Illinois call your representatives!

  1. I left that place (Illinois) a long time ago and I’m not planning on moving back. I may visit, since my Dad and my Daughter still live there. I’m trying to talk my Daughter into moving away also, but her mother is there and her friends are there so I don’t think I will be able to.

    I always hope that one day Illinoians will wake up and demand the liberty that most of the rest of the country already enjoys, but with Chicago as a political lodestone to their liberties, that hope is faint.

      Its really the same with Massachusetts. People like myself put up a good fight, but the state keeps sinking deeper into the powers of anti-rights.

      When I’m able to leave this state without major drawbacks, I won’t look back either.

      Unfortunately both my wife and I willingly moved from Maine to Mass willingly and for a large number of good reasons. None of those reasons were lower taxes or individual liberty.

    I can tell you that that bill’s dead in the water. We’ve got more important issues to push than to burn capital on it.

    That’s a ‘deal w/ later’ issue.
