What Will State’s Attorneys Do with Regard to Prosecuting the Democrats’ Gun Control Law?

Patrick Kenneally spoke at McHenry County GOPac’s Second Amendment seminar the Saturday before last before the Democrats passed their gun control legislation and Governor JB Pritzker signed it.

That’s the question that commenter “Because Science” asked Sunday.

He wrote,

“The real issue here, as has been pointed out, is what a county SA will do.

“It may be telling that none of them have weighed in on that as of yet.

“If municipal cops, or even park district or MCCD cops for that matter, want to charge someone, then the ball falls into PK’s court to decide what to do about it.

“So far he hasn’t said anything.”

I have emailed McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally asking what he is going to do.

I found the following statement from Governor JB Pritzker on a website called “Bearing Arms:”

“These are folks who are entrusted by the public to enforce the law.

“They don’t get to choose which laws they enforce.”

Next came this observation:

“Oh no?

“Tell that to Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who said back in 2020 that her office would no longer be prosecuting low-level drug offenses.

“Tell that to the liberal prosecutors in places like Austin, Texas who’ve said they won’t be enforcing the state’s anti-abortion laws.

“With a finite amount of resources, virtually every law enforcement agency uses discretion and prioritizes which offenses to (depending on whether we’re talking about police or prosecutors) investigate, charge, and prosecute.

“Pritzker may have his king-sized panties in a bunch over the vociferous objections by the vast majority of sheriffs (and a growing number of State’s Attorneys as well), but there’s not much he can do about it.”

  1. What BullshitScientest conveniently ignores is that the “real issue here” is
    the governmental tyranny imposed upon law abiding gun owning citizens by Pritzker and his Commie mob
    of Constitution haters who seek power and control over their citizens by any means, which is always
    achieved by use of force.

    This will not go unchallenged.

  2. I am sure that the current law was very carefully researched before it was drafted and passed in terms of whether or not it ran afoul of current Constitutional law decisions by SCOTUS.

    The Heller decision, which struck down the District of Columbia’s attempt to regulate handguns, rifles and shotguns was limited to those weapons and others which were in “common usage for lawful purposes” and thus excluded the types of weapons that are the subject of the new Illinois law.

    So to challenge this it would have to be argued that such weapons, which are not necessary for personal defense or hunting, and which have been used in mass shootings throughout the US and in Illinois, are in “common usage for lawful purposes”.

    I don’t see this happening.

    This law does not violate the Second Amendment as currently construed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/District_of_Columbia_v._Heller

    The passage of this law is a trap set by the Democrats in Springfield. They want gun advocates to challenge this and set up another “Dobbsian” situation which is what handed them the partial victory in the mid term elections.

    So go for it.

  3. Kenneally pictured in his stand up routine at the ‘UpRising Bakery’. The proper hand grip for self pleasure. LoL

  4. …”don’t you be no square. You can’t find a partner use a wooden chair, Let’s Rock”….

    Pic shows Kenneally closing out the show, with a raucous group singing of Elvis’s Jailhouse Rock

  5. The Hour of Decision – isn’t that the Billy Graham thing in the stadium where you come down to the stage and accept Jesus as The Savior?
