The 2nd begins A Well Regulated.... Guns in the USA are not well regulated when over 31,000 peopleRead Mored ie and over 100,000 people are seriously wounded each year from gun mayhem. The people who die and their loved ones are not ever free of, or happy about, the damage done by unregulated guns. The bottom line is that our gun policies and our courts are responsible for over 1 million deaths and over 4 million serious wounds caused by guns since 1960. This beastly carnage must stop. To justify this lack of respect for human beings is pure lunacy, and it shows that this country values guns more than people. When the NRA has a gun appreciation celebration day after the slaughter at Sandy Hook, and 5 NRA members are shot at gun shows, one has to really wonder if any of these people have any common sense at all. If these are the people who are defending their homes with guns, it’s no wonder that having a gun in the home makes it 12 times more likely that a person in that home will be killed by a gun, versus a home without a gun.

2nd amendent review … facts v NRARead Morepropogander >>>>>>>>>>>&g t;>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> +++ Second Amendment to the United States Constitution: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< +++ [CLIP] 2ND SAY: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> +++ [CLIP] In United States v. Cruikshank (1876), the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that, "The right to bear arms is not granted by the Constitution; neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence" and limited the applicability of the Second Amendment to the federal government. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< +++ NEXT >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> +++ http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/comment/2012/12/jeffrey-toobin-second-amendment.html> <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< +++ For more than a hundred years, the answer was clear ... according to the Supreme Court, and the lower courts as well, the amendment conferred on state militias a right to bear arms—but did not give individuals a right to own or carry a weapon. +++ Enter the modern National Rifle Association. Before the nineteen-seventies, the N.R.A. had been devoted mostly to non-political issues, like gun safety. But a coup d’état at the group’s annual convention in 1977 brought a group of committed political conservatives to power—as part of the leading edge of the new, more rightward-leaning Republican Party. The new group pushed for a novel interpretation of the Second Amendment, one that gave individuals, not just militias, the right to bear arms ... there is no better example of the living Constitution than the conservative re-casting of the Second Amendment in the last few decades of the twentieth century.

15 Murders and 35 people wounded in Chicago this weekend and not a one of them caused by an NRARead MoreMemb er, FOID Card holder or CCL License holder, Hmmm. Those criminal Gang Members just will not stop shooting each other and other people too! Now we have arrested most of them at least 4 times and they just won't pay any attention to the GFZ signs or Safe Passage signs that we put up!

Over 31,000 plus gun homicides last year were Unjustified, and over 80% of them were not criminals, Read More100s were innocent children. Police are making their jobs impossible by letting the NRA control Illinois gun laws. A dedicated cop was shot in South Chicago last week; that's 12 plus after the NRA returned guns into homes of South Siders. In Switzerland, all guns are registered, and any crimes committed by a gun are passed on to its owner. That is why more Swiss military are leaving their guns in Armories now. And statistics prove that your chances of dying in a conflict are increased by 700% when you are carrying. Also, the chances of somebody dying in a home with a gun are 1,200% higher than in homes without guns. You are not looking for bad guys?? Then why are you so excited about seeing Justifiable Homicides climb by 500%?? Sounds like you want to play Judge and Jury with your trigger finger. There are 1,000s of bar fights in Illinois every weekend, and it’s going to be interesting to see how many end in death now.

Gerald - Dan is a round lake resident who doesn't view Libertyville as Dodge City, but rather heRead Moreado res Libertyville and supports our local business weekly by eating at Burt's and driving into our village for all his rental car needs. We thank him for his support!! He just is a bit leery of places like picnic basket and Foss swim school because he is fearful that the bad guys are just waiting to get him. I met plenty of people who are afraid of rollar coasters and flying and with positive support and professional help they were able to get over these fears and live productive lives. I pray that Dan will someday experience this as well.

I will exercise my Second Amendment Rights and I will be in Libertyville to go where I wish.Read MoreBusines ses with a GFZ sign are few and far between... so I simply go where people are not afraid of a law abiding citizen exercising their rights. Perhaps you and the folks at the Picnic basket... will seek help with your irrational fears.
