On Friday, police showed up to a young man’s workplace and tried to arrest him over social media posts reported to them by an old army buddy of the 28-year-old Afghanistan veteran.  This man, known as Alex and popular on Instagram under the handle of WhiskeyWarrior556, slipped out of the back door, hurried home to check on his family where he found out police had already forced themselves into his home and confiscated his legal firearms after threatening his wife with calling child protective services to remove her newborn child. Alex then barricaded himself inside his own attic, unarmed.  Law enforcement officers followed him, blocked off the road to all traffic and a seven-hour standoff began.

Illinois isn’t quite as bad as California when it comes to gun laws, but it hasn’t been for lack of trying on the part of the Land of Lincoln.

One of the weakest arguments made by gun control activists is “This isn’t 1791 anymore you know. The Founding Fathers never could have envisioned modern firearms, therefore the Second Amendment doesn’t matter today.” It’s an absurd argument that’s already been addressed by the Supreme Court, which noted in the Heller decision that the Second Amendment doesn’t just protect muskets and black powder rifles, but extends “prima facie to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding.”
