Illinois State Sen. Toi Hutchinson dropped her bid to fill the Congressional seat of former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. on Sunday after her moderate views on gun safety made her a target of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s political action committee, Independence USA.
In what will be the first election since the shooting in Newton, Connecticut, the $2 million ad buy criticized Hutchison and another candidate for receiving an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA). “In the race for Congress, the big issue? Fighting gun violence. Debbie Halvorson and Toi Hutchinson both earned an A from the NRA, they can’t be trusted,” the ad began before endorsing former state Rep. Robin Kelly who supports background checks and banning assault weapons.
Guns have become a central issue in the primary, as Kelly attacked her opponents’ views on gun safety and “pointed out that Hutchinson received a 92 percent rating from the NRA” and does not support a statewide concealed carry ban. She also urged all candidates to “sign on to a five-point pledge to reduce gun violence: banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, closing the gun show loophole, supporting Illinois’ conceal carry ban, and refusing support from ‘organizations that oppose reasonable gun safety legislation.’”
Again with the assault weapon BS? Do any of these people EVER crack a freaking book to educate themselves on what they are talking about and controlling? How much more stupid can they be? Someone needs to ask them publicly what the hell they think this gun is and then school them on the facts. Or they all to well know that defining "assault weapon" (which gvt made up to sound scary) as the semi-automatic type encompasses just about every gun we own. And yes, total gun bans is what they are going for.... gvt people stick together from the country Sheriff to the POS POTUS... they all want to control society at large.
" reasonable gun safety legislation.’” from a liberal? What is reasonable gun safety legislation to a commie liberal? Only a total ban on all guns. Enforce the 20,000 plus unconstitutional gun laws already on the books. You stinking liberals should watch a little television, like Cops, Dateline ID, The FBI files.... how many of those on those shows, were in prison and released because of some liberal judge or parole board. Keep pushing your stupid laws and rules on freedom loving real Americans and soon you commies will be swinging from the end of a rope by your filthy necks.
Will you people ever learn to mind your own business and quit trying to run everybody else's lives? I guess that's how you Progressive/Commie Liberals get off. I'll run this by you again --- THE CRIMINAL'S ARE THE BAD GUYS --- Not the law abiding citizens. Oh, I forgot. You Liberals can't seem to understand that.
It's about controling the guns to have control of the people,the liberal fascist don't care about criminals because that would be them!
Seriously? Bloomberg needs to be removed from office! He is delving into areas he has not right or responsibility to interfere with, and the scary part is that those lemmings in New York continue to put up with it like there is nothing wrong with his attempts to legislate every aspect of their lives. What is he going to mandate next?
HAHAHAHA YOU DUMB ASS PEOPLE 500 PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN YOUR STATE LAST YEAR WERE THESE PEOPLE FROM THE NRA ? THEY WERE PUNKS, GANG MEMBERS, JUNKIES, AND YOU THINK THAT THESE PEOPLE ARE GUNNA STOP? IT`S GUNNA BE A SHOOTING RANGE FOR THESE MORONS. HEY LETS ROB ANYBODY WE WANT BECAUSE NOBODY HAS ANY GUNS TO STOP US.

I went to the "thinkprogress.org/justice/2013... website. And a bigger bunch of lefty loonies you cannot find! They were ranting and raving against the NRA, advising the Imposter-In-Thief to make a recess appointment to the head of the BATFE (a Congressional appointment), and all such other things that most of us Tea Partiers do not hold with. FYI.
Fellow FREE citizens of the United States OF AMERICA the time has come to stand and be counted for FREEDOM! As free citizens we need to dismantle this TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT! with any miens necessary.
This is the problem with the GOP.... "dropped her bid"? They get some opposition and then run away or cave to the opponent.
But-she's a democrat and a "woman of color".
A Democrat? Yes. A woman of color? yes. In my observation these political people of color talk a good game until it is time to react and then they shit their pants and step down. No Guts NO Glory. Wake up you people who want these jobs and stand up for for the PEOPLE. Not some money loaded piece of shit from New York that means nothing to us or anyone else as far as that goes. But it is hard in Illinois because every Democrat in the State Govt. starting with Durbin on down to the tyrannical Mayor of Chicago are the most America hating communist pieces of shit on this earth.
