Illinois Anti Gun Bills

Post by scipioafricanus » Wed Mar 07, 2018 11:31 am

So the usual is happening again in Illinois, save the children and cops; get rid of guns. For those that don't know, a high level Chicago police commander was murdered by a 4 time felon downtown. Well they are using his death to pass a magazine ban. HB 1469 is being named after Commander Paul Bauer.

Problem is it doesn't solve the problem (BIG SURPRISE). The suspect shouldn't have been out of jail, but of course, Democrats are in charge. ... tions.html

The documents, reviewed by the Chicago Sun-Times, reveal that Bauer's accused killer, Shomari Legghette, dodged up to 30 years in prison when he was booked for the violations that year.

At the time of his 2007 sentencing, Legghette was on parole following an armed robbery conviction that landed him a 16-year sentence, and prison time from 1998 to 2005.

Records show that police found Legghette in the South Side in 2007 with $1,800 in cash, body armor, a chrome revolver, and a baggie of heroin, the Sun-Times reported.

If he was on parole at sentencing, he was therefore on parole for a previous violent felony when they picked him up, with body armor, heroin, and a de-serialized pistol. Why was he not thrown under the prison?

It's one thing to try and give people a chance to prove that they're not one of the recidivism statistics. But after they've proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that they ARE? [facepalm]
