Coming up with Bishop On Air, we'll talk with Chief Engineer of Springfield's City Water Light and Power and about how some in the Illinois General Assembly want to make you a felon, if you own a high capacity magazine.
Chief Engineer of City Water Light and Power, Eric Hobbie, joins the show in the 10 o'clock hour to talk about the utility. We'll cover everything from the possibility of another rate hike--just how much would be needed? Also, we'll try to get into the issue of water supply and what is going on between Chatham and CWLP. Don't miss this conversation!
Today could see a vote in Illinois to ban high capacity ammunition magazines. With that, some parents of children killed during the Newtown massacre will push state senators into voting for the measure, saying that the shooter had high capacity magazines that were used. It's a touching story that will absolutely pull at your heart strings, but is it logical to ban law abiding citizens from having magazines that hold more than 10 rounds?
Need a justification for why high capacity magazines are important? Watch the below dramatization of what could easily happen in a neighborhood near you.
Also, consider if this law passes and lawful people are restricted from owning high capacity ammunition magazines, what happens to all those who are in possession of the magazines? Would they have to turn them in? If they didn't, would that possibly make them a felon? So, the state wants to make tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people felons overnight. That smells like government run amok!
