Thanks to a listener's steer to "The Illinois Shooter," the journal of the Illinois State Rifle Association, Rep. Kelly Cassidy (Democrat, 14th District) is making some news on this blog.

Rep.  Cassidy wants you to register every gun you have individually, and then bring that registration to the ammunition store where they would register every purchase of ammo. Oh, and each gun registration would cost 20 to 50 dollars PER GUN. Again, that is 20 to 50 bucks PER GUN. After all, you only need one.

Can we do free speech by the word? How about freedom to worship, but only in a church in Annawan? Or, you get freedom of assembly in Illinois, but the charge is 50 dollars for each free American who shows up, every time you want to assemble.

Why do we keep electing these people?
