Meanwhile, the Governor of that
Now, you can go the border between Indiana and Illinois and drive back and forth all day long without noticing any particular huge change in landscape (hey, look, a river!) either side; nor do you suddenly become overwhelmed by the urge to kill, kill, kill on the IL side of the line -- at least, the vast majority of folks do not, unless they were that way on the IN side already. I'm told much the same condition obtains at the Missouri-IL border and up Iowa way, too. And yet-- Somehow, in Illinois, guns are de Debbil in a way they are not in other states until you reach New Jersey, Mass. and New York to the East, or California to the the West.
It can happen here.
Now there's a chance things may turn; certainly downstate IL has no shortage of fine, right-minded folks and McDonald, et al. fought the Good Fight and won. But I misdoubt it will be fast or easy; too much BS has gone over the dam.
