Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty teeth.

First Inaugural Address of George Washington...April 30, 1789

The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

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.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Abraham Lincoln said:

"In this age, and in this country, public sentiment is everything. With it, nothing can fail; against it nothing can suceed. Whoever molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes, or pronounces judicial decisions."

James Madison Declared

The adversaries of the Constitution seem to have lost sight of the PEOPLE altogether in their reasonings on this subject; and to have viewed these different establishments not only as mutual rivals and enemies, but as uncontrolled by any common superior in their efforts to usurp the authorities of each other. These gentlemen must be reminded of their error. They must be told that the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY, wherever the derivative may be found, RESIDES IN THE PEOPLE ALONE. (Federalist Papers, No. 46, p.294; emphasis added.)

What next...your DNA?

Its not going to happen yet here in McHenry County but beginning on June 1, 2009 in order to sell your own house you will have to submit a thumb print of your right thumb (they will take it).(Illinois Public Act 095-0988) I guess a drivers license or Ill. ID Card or a US Passport will not suffice. What will be required in Cook County next...a DNA sample and retinal scan? What are they going to do with this thumb print and where will it really wind up being kept on file when they can't even keep confidential computerized info confidential. If you have never had your finger prints taken what are they going to use as a baseline normal. A way of tracing you down because they have your identity in their computer files database. The days of "big brother" and "show me your papers" are already here. Soon we will have to get a visa to travel from state to state....don't may be next in line...have your right thumb ready and don't forget to smile or you may be subject to further examination and interrogation.

When are the citizens of this country going to draw a line in the sand and tell its elected officials further more intrusion in our private lives and affairs.

Thought about trying to track down who voted for this stupid Public Act. What a joke trying to use the online information at Found the Public Act and then tried to read the Senate Bill behind it and ended up with something else. Wonder who the genius was who designed the system so it frustrates any user trying to look up who voted for what!
