Well there is a lot of subjective language in that bill that will be used however they see fit. Let me give you an example.
In Illinois the A6 dui ticket states that if any amount of drug comes back in your system that is on the list of drugs you can't be driving with it
then you can be charged with DUI. So guess what my department did...they wanted us to start asking suspected pot smokers if they had smoked pot in
the last week. Most of them were honest and would state "yes". Well then we had guys making a dui arrest even the person wasnt impaired...under
the law it said they had cannabis in their system. Now different prosecutors have viewed the law different ways. Some say you need impairment while
others think you don't. DUI generate revenue so you have people pushing the limits of the law on it and its absolutely awful in my opinion of what
they are doing.
How hard do you think it would be to get a search warrant into someone's house because they had a possible illegal gun? Thus "police coming to
confiscate it". Bet that would generate some money. And the descriptions of assault weapons are pretty open. And just wait til the tax on firearms
So my reply to you is this...When you aren't part of the law...you don't see how they squeeze the life out of words to make things fit their needs,
which is understandable. But when you are part of the law and work with laws written just like this one...you can see where it is going. I can name
numerous examples like the DUI law above.
At the same time as this stuff is coming out Illinois is starting to make loads of money of gambling machines in bars....only in bars though...can't
have em anywhere else. Its all about money.
