Hubris – More Like Tyrannical Arrogance

Victor Davis Hanson spoke about hubris in his post that we highlighted earlier but this is tyrannical arrogance.

Happening now in the People’s Republic of Illinois:

“The ISRA has learned from a credible source that Illinois Senate President John Cullerton [above] will introduce a so called ‘assault weapons’ ban on Wednesday when the legislature returns for its ‘lame duck’ session. Cullerton hopes to ramrod the bill through and get it to Governor Quinn for signature by Friday. If he is successful at doing so, nearly every gun you currently own will be banned and will be subject to confiscation by the Illinois State Police . . .

“Based on what we know about Cullerton’s bill, firearms that would be banned include all semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns. Pump action shotguns would be banned as well. This would be a very comprehensive ban that would include not only so-called ‘assault weapons’ but also such classics as M1 Garands and 1911-based pistols. There would be no exemptions and no grandfathering. You would have a very short window to turn in your guns to the State Police to avoid prosecution.”

TTAG’s sources tell us there will be two bills: one for semi-automatic rifles, lever guns, shotguns and handguns with certain features (e.g., threaded barrels); and one for ammunition magazine capacity.

Lock and load, folks. The commies are coming.

  1. I am NOT surprised. I got the H$&@ out of Illinois in December 2008. None too soon. Iowa’s a little better, but we still went blue.

  2. Guess they will need to fire all the current state police personnel and hire a bunch of Chicago goons to enforce any ban. Highly unlikely the current ones would even try.

  3. Another thought! Bring all your guns to Texas and we will hold them in trust for you. When you move out of that Blue State to. red State we will send them to you.
