Illinois,which touts it gun control laws, evidently doesn’t take them all that seriously. At least when issuing the Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) Card.
Hey, what the hell! When another screw up happens, it lets the state and the media rant about guns and shootings.

BREAKING: Illinois Shooter Was Not Allowed To Own A Gun

Yesterday, Gary Montez Martin opened fire at a manufacturing facility in Aurora, Illinois. He murdered five people and wounded several police officers before he shot and killed by law enforcement. The latest update is that Martin shouldn’t have been allowed to own his firearm. He purchased a Smith and Wesson .40 caliber handgun in 2014 but was later discovered to have been convicted of an aggravated assault charge back in 1995 when he tried to apply for a concealed carry permit.  As a result, he should have turned his firearm over to authorities. He didn’t (via NBC News):

Gary Montez Martin, the man who opened fire inside a manufacturing company in Aurora, Illinois, legally should not have been in possession of a firearm, police said on Saturday.

On Friday, Martin, who had been an employee of the Henry Pratt Co. for 15 years, opened fire at a meeting during which he was being terminated from his job, according to Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman.

[…]

On Saturday, Ziman said that Martin, 45, purchased a handgun on March 6, 2014, after being issued an Illinois Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) Card in January of that year. The firearm, a Smith and Wesson .40 caliber, was in Martin’s possession as of March 11, 2014.

The FOID card application process includes a background check, but applicants are not fingerprinted, Ziman said

It was only when Martin applied for a concealed carry permit on March 16, 2014, that he was fingerprinted and it was revealed he had a 1995 felony conviction for aggravated assault in Mississippi.

Ziman said that upon the discovery of this conviction, Martin’s concealed carry permit was rejected and his FOID card was revoked

“Absolutely he was not supposed to be in possession of a firearm,” Ziman said.

Chief Ziman added that Martin was mailed a letter noting that his FOID card had been revoked due to the felony charge and that he was required to turn over his handgun to police. Was there a follow-up? That remains to be seen. So, once again we have another instance where the gun control laws already in place weren’t enforced.

This looks like this was a preventable shooting. We’ll keep you updated, but before the anti-gun Left clamors for new restrictions that chip away at our constitutional rights, just remember—the laws already on the books should have kept firearms away from this man. And once again law enforcement appeared to drop the ball. As they had when it came to shooter Dylann Roof in South Carolina and Devin Patrick Kelley in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Why didn’t the police go to his home and confiscate the weapon? In Florida, if someone who has a grudge against you, they can go to the police and say you’re a menace. The police will be at your door to confiscate any guns that you own. Anyone can say your a threat to safety and your rights are abridged.

Why didn’t Illinois do this? Or is it merely a means of riling up the State Owned Media so they can attack GUNS and GUN OWNERS.

Probably.

WHY GRANDPA CARRIES A GUN…

A world history lesson……lest we forget.

The quintessential reason why Grandpa carries a gun. Please take time to read this and pay particular attention to “A Little Gun History” about half way down.

Why Carry a Gun?

My old Grandpa said to me, “Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin’.”

I don’t carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry; I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Police protection is an oxymoron: Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take a whoopin’!

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY…

PLEASE DON’T THINK FOR A MOMENT, THAT THIS COULDN’T HAPPEN IN OUR COUNTRY ALSO !!!

You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun control laws adversely affect only the law abiding citizens.

With guns, we are ‘citizens’; without them, we are ‘subjects’.

During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.

SWITZERLAND ISSUES A GUN TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD!

SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.

SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

IT’S A NO BRAINER! DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL law abiding CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

I’m a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!

BUTTE MONTANA

AN 11 YR OLD WHO SHOT ILLEGALS thanks FOX NEWS for reporting it.

A Shotgun-armed Preteen vs Illegal Alien Home Invaders.

Two illegal aliens, Ralph el Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26,
probably believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11-year-old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story home.

It seems these crooks never learned two things:
They were in Montana , and Patricia had been a clay-shooting champion
since she was nine. Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two
men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her
father’s room and grabbed his 12-gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.
Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor, only to be the
first to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the
11-year-old’s knee-crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his
abdomen and genitals.

When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left
shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death
before medical help could arrive. It was found out later that Resindez
was armed with a stolen 45-caliber handgun he took during another
home invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David 0’Burien, was
not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.

Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, or ABC news? An 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home, and herself against two murderous, illegal immigrants and she wins.

She is still alive. Now THAT is Gun Control!

Thought for the day:
Calling an illegal alien an ‘undocumented
immigrant’ is like calling a drug dealer an ‘unlicensed pharmacist.’

Daily Insanity

In what is he afraid in his worthless life? Shoot him? No gun owner will waste a round. Perhaps some rabid Lefty might to make a name for himself.
Isn’t it unlawful to abuse the mentally handicapped?

David Hogg protests outside NRA HQ — protected by armed guards?

Anti-gun protester David Hogg hates guns — but apparently not enough to not be protected by them.

Hogg and a collective of anti-Second Amendment agitators protested outside the NRA headquarters on Saturday, and as the group points out, he was protected by armed guards.

The NRA’s photos show, among other things, Hogg with several security agents.

For his part, Hogg unwittingly tweeted a photo showing additional armed security protecting him.

In an attempt to ridicule the pro-2A counter-protesters, the student undermined his own message.

Hogg’s photo shows at least three men who appear to be security agents. Armed police officers stand in the parking lot, ready to protect the teen with big, bad guns. [snip]

This isn’t unusual; Rosie O’Donnell also rants about guns. She has armed security at home and on the street.

The normal cant from the Left is “It’s good for thee, but not for me” is as common as stink on a hog.

Feminists want the same rights as guns

There is no reason that this Country cannot make this come true.
