U.S.A. -( Lake County Councilman Charlie Brown (D-Gary) and Councilwoman Christine Cid (D-East Chicago) announced their support for a proposal to ban sales of “AR-15” firearms at gun shows held at the Lake County Fairgrounds. What they are proposing is to restrict lawful, tax-paying businesses from selling legal products to law-abiding citizens, who wish to exercise an enumerated constitutional right, at a taxpayer-funded venue during an event where the show promoter has paid to rent it. Licensed firearm dealers are bound by federal law regardless of whether firearm transfers take place at a gun show or at their regular premises. Their sales at the fairgrounds are subject to the exact same recordkeeping and background check requirements.

The Council’s next meeting will be on July 12th. The agenda for the meeting and the exact text for any proposed ordinance are not yet available. Please stay tuned to and your email inbox for further details. In the meantime, please contact Council members and ask them to OPPOSE any such scheme to ban arbitrary categories of firearms.

Ban their Employment Forever! Penalty for Treason=Rope


Lake County is Gary. Gary and Lake County are two of the most corrupt and obligingly Democrat havens in the state. Little wonder they’d like the few honest and defenseless citizens left to be defenseless.
No one up there can even spell “H-O-N-E-S-T”


That’s because in order to spell honest you must have integrity of which they have neither.

Indiana has strong preemption in place, so this new law in Lake County would be illegal. Probably won’t stop them, but they’ll get sued and it will overturn eventually after wasting huge amounts of taxpayer dollars.

Would be curious to see how many crimes in Lake County or eve nearby Chicago are committed with the evil AR-15.


That is all the court systems are for isn’t it ? WASTE PEOPLES TIME & RESOURCES. Do we really need them ? At this point in time I don’t think so. I haven’t seen any justice in my lifetime.


Don’t forget, it is also a ploy for a specific group of people to earn a paycheck by arguing laws that are so convoluted that they are constantly mis interpreted and changed in order to fit the scenario they are trying to tie them too. I have seen the law interpretation changed by the placement of a comma in a sentence in kommiefornia. Job security for the lawyers, judges, police and other law enforcement. I didn’t feel that way 10 years ago. I’ve seen justice go to the wayside myself and been screwed by the court twice because laws are… Read more »


They always go for the jingoistic “trick of the week” that they read about some other fool enacting several jurisdictions away: one gun a month, ban gun shows, gun free zones, etc. They never seem to stop and ask, “Did it have any positive effect on the problem it was intended to solve?” We live in a violent country. Sometimes that violence is expressed through the use of firearms. They feel that if they somehow control the firearms, the underlying violence will just go away. Not all that different a technique from putting a band-aid on a sucking chest wound.… Read more »


Spot on.


ah, soon they will tell you what and how much food you can purchas and where you have to go to purchase that food that they allow you to purchase. i’m waiting for them to mandate co2 emitters on every person to curb greenhouse gases in the guise of saving the planet.


what days you can work or buy gas electricity rationing


they told me I could not be off grid they dont allow battery storage, so I built an electric pickup and have it “charging”


Yes, there will be a limit on how far you can drive to buy your supplies and google will track it for them on your andriod phone and report, for a fee that our tax dollars will pay. You will also get to pay a fee for the amount of emissions expelled that you were tracked for. My andriod phone already gives me a report on the number of cities I visited, the miles that I drove and it makes sure to report to me that they were not eco friendly miles. WHY?????? Why would google pay for the time… Read more »

I’m originally from Gary IN and Charlie Brown lived 2 doors down from where my Grandma used to live. He has always been an enemy of liberty, a real communist at heart and evil as hell. Fortunately, the Indiana Statehouse has been overwhelmingly Republican and stopped these stupid and wrong bills dead in their tracks. But I moved from there because Indiana is being overrun by RINOs (like Judas Pence and Chief Justic John Roberts). At some point Indiana will fall to the commiecrats, and they already have red flag gun confiscation on the law-books. Wherever you live, make damn… Read more »


need to get scotus to rule it unconstitutional nationally

Henry Bowman

Agree, but we ought not have to wait for SCOTUS to rule in our favor. The unanimous and un-reversed opinion of SCOTUS is that anything that is unconstitutional is void on its face and not a law (Marbury v Madison, 1803). Therefore, gun infringements are inoperative and should not be regarded as valid between the passage of that bad bill and it being struck down in the Supreme Court.
Moreover, we have a duty to disobey the unconstitutional actions of a rogue government!


You forgot about Transportation bitch, Butt-Chek from South Bend.

Henry Bowman

A minor player at best. Incompetent as hell, which is likely the only reason why he was selected to be Transportation Secretary. That, and he’s a peter puffer.

On that note, happy LGBTQ month!! (LOL)

Another piece of wonderful news. I went to the bank today and they were closed for June Teenth. Whatever the F*ck that is! It seems they’re making this Sh*t up as they go along!

Henry Bowman

It’s supposedly about some blacks who were ‘liberated’ after the Civil War but not by whites, or some such. It’s just some racist claptrap that is intended to cancel the sacrifice of 300,000 white Northerners who died to liberate blacks.

It’s for this cause that the Left celebrates the assassination of ‘racist’ Abe Lincoln. They can go fornicate themselves!!
