Stop and Frisk / Gun Banning

Our Elected Officials have no respect for our Constitutional Rights, they wish to violate and infringe upon them at every opportunity that arises. But, the Courts are smacking them down, like the Bad-Dogs that they are. Evanston's Stop and Frisk policy by its Gestapo Style Police is under fire! A recent Ruling by a Federal Court has found Stop and Frisk to be UnConstitutional. The same has happened to the Evanston, Handgun Ban and soon... the so called Assault Weapons Ban will be struck down as UnConstitutional. We need to focus on the 150,000 Criminal Gang Members, that the FBI has reported, live in Chicago. Do not be complacent and allow the bureaucrats to convince you to surrender your Constitutional Rights. Speak out and take action to defend the Liberties that so many have fought and sometimes died to insure you would have them. It is the governments primary responsibilty to protect the citizens from harm, by criminals or enemies... Foreign or Domestic, while recognizing and respecting our Constitutional Rights. Remember, only the Second Amendment included the words, "Shall not be Infringed".  It was and is that important.

Dan...Evanston doesn't have a handgun ban.....I know because I live here. Further, I am offering the Illinois Concealed Carry License course to those legally able to own a handgun in Illinois...eight classes between now and year end. The Evanston Zoning and Legal Depts. are fully aware of the course offering as is the Evanston Police Dept. They have all been fully cooperative in reviewing the background while seeking to make sure that the offering met their requirements. Rather than screaming the sky is falling, my path of choice is to directly empower those that wish to exercise their legal rights in an appropriate fashion....and the local authorities have been diligent but fair.

Amazing that someone so vehemently pro 2nd amendment would be so uninformed about the laws of the city he lives in. Unless Dan doesn't live here. Either way I can't believe he would be so ill informed. Obviously anyone runs around screaming about their 2nd rights must know what they are talking about. And be far better informed than all us idiots.

Jimmy come and take the class and get a permit.

Yes Jimmy, take a class... because I would really love to learn how one can conceal one of these things.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCOpE9v3Pmo

Jordan Zoot, the Evanston Handgun Ban was repealed after the McDonald Case. Yet, the uninformed did not read the Patch article about the Gang Violence, in which, gun banning was mentioned. Your sad excuse of a ploy to advertise your CCW Class is really weak. Zoot, you could not pay me to take your class. I see you made no mention of the UnConstitutional tactic of Stop & Frisk, Hmmm. Perhaps after your Gestapo Evanton Police strip search you and then arrest you for carring a loaded gun, even though you have a "Permit", you will be enlightened to the ways of Cook County, or should I say Crook County. Evanston is a City built by the worst Mass-Murderer in the History of the United States, yet, people like you want to call him a Heroe. Confused and dazed, you ignor the historical Ban on Hand Guns, the Stop & Frisk Policy of your Police and turn a blind eye to all of the oppression in your community. BTW, how is your fight over the Assault Weapons Ban going, I know you want to keep all of those AR-15's in Evanston... or did they force you to remove them?

The Conceal Carry Law in Illinois is one of the worst in the Nation. It requires more training, costs more than any other CCW License/Permit and is only good for 5 years. The total cost to get the training, pay for the License fee and pay for the ammo used, fingerprinting, etc...Aprox. $450.00 Now, what Zoot does not tell you is that you will most likely end up arrested in Cook County, for violating one of the no-weapons allowed zones. Container Carry, is legal right now and you do not need a Permit/License, other than your FOID Card. No expensive training, no renewal fee in 5 years and did I mention... you can do it RIGHT NOW! Not next year, when the ISP, finally gets around to issuing Permit/License's. You can Container Carry on a Train, Bus, in a Park,etc. You can not Conceal Carry a loaded gun in any of those places, License/Permit or not. So, if you want to constantly be unloading your gun in public and converting to Container Carry...then join Zoot's group and see how that works out for you. How do you think people will react to your pulling your gun out at a Bus Stop, to unload it and store it in a Container carry fashion? Hmmm.

Love it when the gun nuts attack each other :)
Dan Cox October 08, 2013 at 06:30 AM
Lisa S. We love you too!:)
Jordan S. Zoot October 08, 2013 at 01:21 PM
Dan Cox is an idiot...not worth responding to.
IgnorantA October 08, 2013 at 03:26 PM
isn't that a response? Dan must not be the only idiot
Dan Cox October 08, 2013 at 07:46 PM
Zoot, you are the one who failed to correctly read the comment that the Handgun Ban had been struck down by a Federal Court and you are the one who fails to acknoledge that the Assault Weapons Ban, effects you! I have seen the photos of your AR-15 Collection. Evanston has Banned your guns Zoot... do your really feel that Evanston is allowing you to exercise your Constitutional Rights in an appropriate manner? Really?
Jordan S. Zoot October 10, 2013 at 04:09 AM
Dan....FFL's are exempt from the Evanston AWB...it would help if you learn to read.
Dan Cox October 10, 2013 at 07:37 PM
You did not answer the question, typical. When you allow your Elected Officials to Violate your fellow citizens, Constitutional Rights, you do not deserve to have them. Who are you Zoot, someone that feels he is superior to all other citizens? You sir are contemptable and a Bagel-Brain!
