You keep at it! Even if only one of us laughs, at least you know we are not crying!
The far right wing inability to admit mistakes is really getting old.

Secondly Illinois with its prison-planet style stop and ID laws are laws made by thieving lying politicians to restrict freedom and enforce government dominance - and enforced by militarized thugs with badges.

I guess mentioning the assault weapons ban from the Reagan administration would be admitting a mistake...typical.
Edit: My bad I meant the Brady Bill!

But it's 'crazy' !
But it's 'lunacy' !
For us to ?
Yes, in the context of the kind of open carry advocacy we outlined in the video.
It's crazy to loiter around a high school with a rifle and bullet-proof vest.
It's lunacy to bring your AR-15 to the airport, just to get coffee.
People doing this risk sparking a public outcry that could end up limiting open-carry rights in the states that still have them.
Yep... And as usual, there is always somebody that ruins it for everybody else. It's been that way since the dawn of time and it will probably still be that way until the end of time.
We are slow learners apparently.
