JOURNAL COURIER
— Some firearms owners worry state will step up action amid poor registration numbers – Ben Singson (COMMENT: Anticipate/expect that immediately after the next big mass shooting in Illinois, Pritzker will force county sheriffs and states attorneys to arrest and perp walk high-profile non-registrants in their counties who share Trump’s demographics: conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-poor, non-veteran, married, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.myjournalcourier.com/news/article/republican-lawmakers-worry-possible-seizure-18617660.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some Republican state lawmakers are worried the state is going to escalate action against unregistered prohibited firearms in Illinois — including seizing them — though the governor’s office denies any such plan. Assistant Republican Leader Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer, R-Murrayville, said he is concerned Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration would coordinate with Illinois State Police to begin confiscation of illegal weapons, including those now banned under the Protect Illinois Communities Act. “I believe it will happen, if it has not happened already,” he said. Davidsmeyer said he also is worried the government will withhold grants from local law enforcement agencies that did not enforce the assault weapons ban. Dozens of sheriffs have stepped forward to say they will not enforce the ban, a move Pritzker has said would put their jobs at risk. “Ultimately, my concern is that … because so many sheriffs have said they will not enforce this law,” Davidsmeyer said, “that the state will try to withhold all grants from local law enforcement because they’re not doing what the powers on high tell them they have to do.” A representative for the governor’s office said the claims are “all completely false.” The concerns come after few people registered guns classified as “assault weapons” with state police by the ban’s registration deadline. About 1.2% of all Firearm Owner Identification Card holders registered their guns between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31; an additional 5,867 were in the process Jan. 1-16 of completing an affidavit, according to state police. Davidsmeyer said he believes Pritzker will “say whatever politically he needs to say” to enact stronger measures against some firearms. Politicians are “afraid of doing … partial measures” because they want to be sponsored by pro-gun control groups, he said. “Unfortunately, the reality is (Pritzker) wants those guns,” Davidsmeyer said. “That’s it. I’m not saying this to scare anybody. He doesn’t believe people should have them so, at the end of the day, he hasn’t specifically said, ‘We’re going to come to your house and take your guns.’” A representative for Illinois State Police said officers must enforce all aspects of the criminal code, “including seizing unlawfully possessed weapons.” They must operate within the bounds of the Constitution, the Fourth Amendment and the local state’s attorney, the representative said.)

FROM NATIONAL CENTER-LEFT LEANING SOURCES

THE HILL
— Democrats run the federal government. Those Democrats do everything that they can to not hire, to not retain, to not promote, and to get rid of Republicans who are conservative, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time. That means those Democrats hire, retain, and promote Democrats who are liberal/moderate, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. Musk should know that.

https://www.baltimoresun.com/2024/01/22/what-did-i-get-from-affirmative-action-3-ivy-league-degrees-and-another-underway-guest-commentary/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As my young family members hear back from colleges about admissions decisions, I recall my experience and how being accepted to Cornell quite literally changed the course of my life. The moment also reminds me how I could have missed the opportunity to attend life-changing institutions if the current college admissions policies were in place then. The decision by the United States Supreme Court to repeal race-conscious admissions looms large. Affirmative action is not merely a policy; it’s a bridge to opportunities once unattainable.)

I should write a book about that.
