Former U.S. Rep. Glenn Poshard will not make another run for the governor's office in 2002.

Poshard issued a short statement Sunday night announcing he will not seek the Democratic party's nomination for the state's highest office. In 1998 he lost a tough battle against Republican George Ryan, and many had been urging him to try again.

~~Poshard, a down-state Democrat, is more pro-gun than most upstate Republicans. This is sad news.

John Horstman set out on a six-hour bicycle ride July 24. As he rolled east across the Illinois Prairie Path bridge near West Chicago, a DuPage County sheriff's officer stopped him. Now, Horstman is embarking on a legal and political odyssey that may be the test case for an ambiguous clause in the state's gun-control law.

~~What part of "unloaded and enclosed in a case, firearm shipping box, or other container" is ambiguous? How can this be a test case when IL v. Brunner already decided it?

Second to None - Gun Control & Freedom of Speech

"I sincerely and deeply hope that the direst and darkest fears of the anti-gun leagues are realized and implemented: that all unconstitutional gun laws are repealed. Yes, our right to express intellectual ideas as protected by the First Amendment is crucial to a free culture. That first mentioned right doesn't mean squat, however, if you don't have the muscle to defend it against violators. That's the role of the Second Amendment: to guarantee a right that is second to none." --Russel Madden

Looks like the folks of Tennessee aren't the only ones fed-up with Tax Hikes.

After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd. Alexis de Tocqueville
