* Yesterday, you’ll recall, Sen. Sam McCann introduced legislation to repeal HB40 and the JB Pritzker and Kwame Raoul campaigns used that bill to bash their respective Republican opponents. Well, here’s today’s McCann release…
Today, Conservative Party gubernatorial candidate Sam McCann introduced a Senate resolution to support nearly 30 Illinois counties that adopted resolutions designating themselves “gun sanctuaries,” which will not enforce gun control they believe to be unconstitutional.
The resolution reads that “we commend these counties and their decision to provide sanctuary for their Citizens who wish to exercise their fundamental right under the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Illinois.”
McCann issued the following statement:
The word “sanctuary” has been misused by liberals in recent years to fool the public into accepting the lawless and dangerous abdication of basic public safety practices. A sanctuary is a place where people can go to feel safe, and in the true spirit of the word, we should support sanctuaries that protect citizens’ rights to protect themselves and their families.
With this resolution, Senators can show our support for local governments and citizens who are unwilling to let their unalienable rights be abused. I call upon all of my colleagues in the Senate to support this resolution so that Illinois can begin to remind America what a sanctuary really is.
The Tribune, by the way, played yesterday’s call and response straight.
