The cool winds of Fall are sweeping across the cities, towns, villages and prairies of Illinois.  The grain harvest is progressing although slowed by rain in certain areas.  On the 20th, the Hunter’s Full Moon will be at its zenith.  Deer will be running everywhere so be careful out there.

The FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2020 is out.  In 2020, legally armed citizens killed more criminals than the police.  Armed citizens killed 343 criminals and the police killed 298 criminals.  There are differences between the two numbers.  I don't have the exact figures but when a legally armed citizen kills a criminal he or she is in defense of their own life or the life of another.  They are stopping a crime and they are also preventing further crimes from being committed.  In the case where the police have to arrest someone and they are shot and killed, it is because they have already committed a crime and have left victims who have been killed, injured, maimed, mentally injured or in some cases, scarred for life.  Seldom are the police able to intervene during the commission of a crime.

The numbers of FOID cards and Illinois Concealed Carry Licenses (ICCL) keep rising In Illinois.  The same is true in other states.  These facts come as no surprise.  The United States is fast becoming a mess with an estimated 1,234,183 people who have crossed our borders illegally since Biden took office.  By the time you read this, that figure will be out of date.  When asked how many of these people had criminal records, one Biden Administration official said he did not know.  My guess is they do know but it is better to look incompetent than face the rath of the American people if the truth were known.  Of course, these people are being transported to your neighborhood, or a neighborhood near you, free of charge.  Well, it is free to them, you and I are paying for it.  Trust me, this may be the cheapest part of this fiasco.  I imagine we will be on the hook for a century.  Haiti and Mexico are nearly 2000 miles apart and separated by open sea.  So how did some 15,000 Haitians get to Mexico?  Someone is helping them.  Now, I wonder who that could be?

When American citizens are asked about Washington D.C., the term “swamp” comes to mind.  The question is what is the swamp?  How does it manifest itself to influence American life?  A really good example has come out of the National Archives.

Remembering 9/11/2001

It is hard to believe that 9/11/2001 was 20 years ago.  I, like many of you, remember where I was and what I was doing when the terrorist attack happened, as well as those agonizing days after.  When I was thinking about the 9/11 attacks, it dawned on me that those under 30 have little or no memory of what happened or the aftermath.  It is like the memories my parents had of Pearl Harbor; I was not around yet so I had to learn what happened.  Still, learning what happened does not give the feelings of what happened.  That too has to be explained even though it isn’t like having lived through it at the time.  History is pretty boring if all you are learning is facts and not the emotions people felt about the people involved and the events.

The talking heads in Washington including government types, media mouthpieces and so-called experts are claiming the war in Afghanistan is over.  These people have lied so much that they are believing their own lies.  This war is not over.  This is an ideological war and there are no time limits on ideological wars.  This will only end when one side is totally crushed.

What the Biden Administration is doing in Afghanistan is more than a blemish on the reputation of the United States, it is a scar that will be there forever.  Moreover, what the Biden Administration has done to the United States Military and the Army, in particular, is unforgivable.  What the role of the United States has been since WWII is to stabilize the world by providing the muscle to organizations like NATO, SEATO and even the UN.  Without the United States the world would be in much more chaos than it is.  That reputation is fading fast with the calamitous fleeing and abandoning of Afghanistan and all those who trusted us there.

One to the topics few people understand is the new District Map and how it will affect their Second Amendment Rights.  Just to refresh everyone, there is a census every 10 years.  From that new census, political districts are redrawn to adjust for changes in population.  The redrawing of the Illinois House of Representatives and the Illinois State Senate districts is the topic of this article.  This is not to say that Judicial and Congressional districts are not affected.  I will inform you about those at another time.

On August 2, 2021, Illinois Governor Pritzker signed HB 562 with Senate Amendments 1 & 2, known as the FOID Modernization Act.  There are all kinds of gnashing of teeth about what is in the bill.  Most have not actually read the bill or understand what it does.  It is true that the ISRA was neutral on the bill.
