    Yes what Obama did was only for Illinois, because that's all he could do. He and he appointees want to and intend to do the same nationwide.

    I want whatever it is that you are smoking.. Roanoke Rapids does not have a good record when it comes to crime.

    A National Rifle Association ad features a retired police officer who claims Obama "didn't think we should be allowed to use a firearm for self-defense." That refers to a vote in the Illinois Legislature to uphold enforcement of local gun bans. It wouldn't have made it a crime to use guns for self-protection elsewhere. If you are going to spread half of the story, atleast give the good half, or would that interupt your biased views?

    You know it's bad when a home invasion happens up in Roanoke Rapids. That city has one of the lowest crime rates per capita in the state and is supposed to be a very nice place. Anything can happen.

    This is a crying shame that our society has come to this that people are not even safe in their own homes. This is a bad time of yr anyway for alot of folks and now that the economy is so bad, it's even worse. God help us all.
