During a debate on concealed-carry state legislation, Illinois State Rep. Jim Sacia (R) said the proposed law was unfair to people living outside of Chicago (video below), reports RedAlertPolitics.com.
“Here is the problem in Illinois,” Sacia said. “I love you folks in Chicago. You’re the ones that have the problem, you have a runaway gun problem. Don’t blame the rest of us. This isn’t about Democrats, it’s not about Republicans. It’s because Chicago wants a warm fuzzy. ‘Let’s pass a bill that will eliminate assault rifles.’ Last year, there were more people killed with hammers than with assault rifles.”
“Here’s an analogy folks, I ask you to think of this: You folks in Chicago want me to get castrated because your families are having too many kids. It spells out exactly what is happening here: You want us to get rid of guns.”
The Illinois State House on Tuesday approved amendments to the bill that prohibit firearms in public trains or buses, schools, child-care centers, casinos, government buildings and stadiums and arenas.
