A correspondent familiar with Illnois politics writes in, re. the recent arrest of Land of Lincoln Gov. Rod Blagojevich on charges of scheming to sell Barack Obama’s now-vacant Senate seat:
"Blagojevich had to surrender his passport and Illinois Firearms Owner ID card when he bailed out. He was a hysterical anti-gunner in the House and once suggested the FOID fee should be $500.
"I wonder, since you are not supposed to possess guns without a FOID card, whether the police confiscated any guns from him, and if so, what kind?"
If any readers from Chiacagoland can answer this riddle, please write in.
Funny, isn’t it, how many times those who want to ban guns turn out to mean, "except for me and my buddies, of course. These law are just meant for ‘the other kind.’"
