* No way does Bruce Rauner want the NRA’s endorsement while he’s trying to do well in suburban Cook County and Chicago. So he didn’t respond

* Rauner did, however, talk to the AP about generalities

Rauner, a Republican businessman from Winnetka, applauded Illinois becoming the last state in the nation to approve concealed carry, and warns that too many regulations on assault weapons and other firearms can run afoul of constitutional rights. […]

“Gun regulations are important,” Rauner said at a news conference, where he was endorsed by a group of black Chicago ministers. “It’s important that we keep guns away from criminals and the mentally ill, but going much beyond that creates constitutional issues.” […]

“I believe in common sense gun safety measures like background checks that keep guns away from criminals and people with mental illness,” he wrote. “Going beyond that requires a very careful balance between promoting public safety and protecting constitutional rights.”

During a GOP primary debate, Rauner said gun owners may want to use the weapons for target practice or other purposes on their own property — calling it a constitutional right “and we’ve got to respect that fact.” Quinn’s campaign on Monday repeated its criticisms of his stance, saying such weapons “belong on a battlefield — not in our schools and not in our communities.”

* Jim Oberweis, on the other hand, needs all the help he can get

    LOL, where did the NRA come up with “Maria Rodriguez” as the GOP candidate for l.g.? That’s not even close in horseshoes or hand grenades.

    “Yo, Todd, what’s the name of the l.g. candidate the Republicans are running for louie in Illinoize?”

    “Um, something like…..Maria? Maria, Rodriguez, …. maybe?”

    “Good enough, we’ll go with that.”

    Not really that far out of left field Wordslinger. Unfortunately Brady didn’t drag her across the finish line in the primary of it would be correct. Remember, they ran as tickets this time around.

    Thunder,the primary was last March. Still, I imagine she’s happy that someone remembered.
