Thanks to Chicago Democrat legislation I can buy a 50 caliber
firearm with over 10,000 ft-lbs energy but can't buy a 25 caliber air
with less than 50 ft. lb. energy. Even crazier, in Chicago you can't
sling shots or slingshot ammo, are they going to ban rocks also? If
find a forked stick and a rubber band will you re arrested for
make an illegal weapon? Can't Chicago Democrats be trusted with a

Large modern places like Chicago don't want your crap over there, like

That makes sense but keeping pellet guns out of the hands of people that
buy more powerful firearms is just plain stupid. I can mail order an
with 30 round magazines but can't order a bolt action pellet gun and
have it
shipped to Illinois. I can go to Missouri, Kentucky, or Indiana and buy
though. Illinois stupidity helps surrounding states, seriously, they
tax so
high businesses and citizens leave.

Another stupidity of Illinois, I can get a concealed carry permit o
carry a
gun but can't carry a switchblade knife. At least we have knives I can
with one hand these days.


Do you think that it's possible that the lawmakers would prefer to also
ban the 30 round magazines and the AR 15 but were not able to get the
legislation through? I doubt seriously that, if you scratch the surface,
you'll find a vendetta against BB guns. This was probably a small part of
a much bigger bill.

The way those things generally happen is that they get tacked onto a
bill outlawing "dangerous weapons," along with brass knuckles, hand
grenades, and so on. That's what happened in NJ. I fought like hell
about it and even testified in a state Senate hearing to keep it from
being enacted. No joy.

But they were in a feeding frenzy. There are several other states --
in some cases, just particular counties -- that have banned
slingshots. And 18 states have outlawed them for hunting.

Actually, they're not outlawed in Illinois. As usual, Roger has his panties
in a bunch because he can't mail order them. .177s below 700fps are
considered toys and you get then at the toystore. Above 177 or above 700 fps
you have to get from a gun dealer.

Goodness! All you need to do is get in the car and drive down to the
store and whip out some money and buy one? A tremendous imposition!

But in reply to Ed's post. Do you mean that rubber band "sling shots"
are banned or the grown up versions with the strings and all?

Yup. Rubber-band slingshots are banned throughout the state. g

Some states outlaw the wrist-rocket type, with the piece that goes
over your wrist, but in NJ, it's all of them.

Remember, David did not kill Goliath with rubber bands :-)

You remind me of things that were said during the big controversy over
"dangerous weapons" here. Someone asked if slings were being outlawed.
The state senators seemed confused about the question. They're more of
the brass knuckles and blackjacks types, anyway.

Maybe someone should have asked about Crécy or Aquincourt. All king of
bad things out there :-)

Errr... "All kinD of" :-(
