Hello Friends,
Dropping a quick note to say hello.  I've been so busy as of late...I stay busy.  It's a great thing, I can't complain in the lest.  Definitely cuts in on my writing time.

If you had a chance to read my last blog entry "Why Illinois Needs HB1016, The Gun Dealer Licensing Act, And What You Can Do To Make Sure We Get It!", it was a really good post.  And just as I anticipated, every gun nut...

Someone who completely ruins the image of respectable firearm-owning civilians. Gun nuts hoard guns and lash out at anyone who disagrees with their ideals, no matter the argument. Often times fall into a pair of catagories.
1. Young 'radicals' who think they'll need guns to protect themselves from either a. A zombie apocalypse (impossible) or b. THE MAN. (Who, if they were to turn on us civilians, would wipe us out like their intense gun-fappery wiped out their rationalism.
2. Older folks who see the world through shitstain brown nostalgia goggles, and commonly regard the world as an oversafe, free speech abolishing world while also screaming at kids to get off their lawn and crying over the lack of meaning in their lives.Gun nuts are NOT all gun owners. Only the ones unable to listen to an argument or take any form of criticism.
Gun Nut 1. "Dude, my sweet tactical (tacticool) rifle is gonna splat some zombie heads when the day comes. Heh."
Gun Nut 2. "Back in my day, we all sat outside with fully automatic weapons and shot at the darkies in town. Man, I miss that. Now all those kids with those vidya games and teevee... Damn them kids."Me: I keep my AR-15 mags loaded with hollow points for reduced penetration and higher stopping power for riot protection.
Everyone else: You're just another dangerous Second Amendment freak, a raving gun nut.
...every gun nut came out of the woodworks...which is great for my readership.  More numbers are more numbers. They can rant and rave and all the stuff they do...but man, they are now my biggest fans.  Or, I'm the person for the moment that they love to hate.Am I the Rush Limbaugh of the NRA world?I try not to be an egotist, but when Todd Vandermyde, Illinois Lobbyist for the NRA begins commenting on your blog, the big crazy fish have come calling.

But I don't mind.  The NRA peeps couldn't raise a welt on my fanny, and bother me about as much as a cloudy day. Their plan is to scream down the truth.Well let them scream.  I'll stand in the face of their wacky outlooks and distorted perspectives.  That's what those who fight for justice do, and have always done.Beyond that, summer is here in the city in full swing.  Today will be my first outdoor movie event in the city.  The evening will start with live music featureing Nellie "Tiger" Travis.  Following that, there will be a showing of the documentary "Mavis!", on Mavis Staples and the Staple Singers.  All of that is going down in the beautiful confines of Millennium Park.  Who could ask for anything more?

The sun is out.  The sky is blue.  Fortunately it's not too hot today.  Things are good, and I'm excited for all the fabulous moments that summer in the city will bring.
