IL: Idiot bureaucrats’ victim disarmament proposal removed from medical marijuana rules

April 20, 2014
posted by

Fox News    

"Medical marijuana users in Illinois who own handguns will be able to keep their firearms, according to a new change in state policy proposed Friday. ... The revised rule would reverse a controversial proposal made by the Illinois Department of Public Health that would have required gun owners to hand over their weapons if they smoke marijuana for medicinal purposes. The move comes after Second Amendment advocates and pot proponents complained that medical marijuana users shouldn’t be forced to choose between guns and cannabis. However, letting pot users possess firearms still puts the state in direct conflict with [an unconstitutional] federal law that prohibits 'shipping, transporting, receiving or possessing firearms or ammunition,' while under a controlled substance."

Houston Chronicle    

"The Kansas Senate has rejected a proposal to keep concealed guns out of libraries and local community centers [sic].

The Senate plans to take final action on the bill Wednesday to determine whether it goes to the House."

"Police armed with assault rifles descended on a Maine man's home after members of a tree removal crew he'd told to clear off his property reported that he had a gun. Turns out the 'gun' the tree crew had seen on Michael Smith of Norridgewock was just a life-sized tattoo of a handgun on his stomach. Smith, who works nights, was asleep when the tree crew contracted by a utility to trim branches near power lines, woke him up at about 10 a.m. Tuesday. He went outside shirtless and yelled at the workers to leave. When he's not wearing a shirt, the tattoo looks like a gun tucked into his waistband." (03/19/14)
