21 year old woman was Raped near Wrigleyville, during the middle of the day in an Alley that had aRead Moref enced off construction area. The Rapist used a knife to force the woman into the fenced of area and the Robbed and Raped her. The sense of feeling "Safe" is eroding in the area as more women are Raped and Robberies become a daily event. The criminals from Detroit and NY are finding easy pret among the Liberal minded Chicago residents that would rather risk being Robbed and Raped... than Conceal Carry a firearm for protection. As one lady put it... I'll just move further North.

According to Rep. Scott Drury... we should not raise Taxes on the multi-millionaires in hisRead MoreDistrict . But oh boy is he hot to restrict a citizens Constitutional Right to Bear Arms.
Dan Cox April 16, 2014 at 05:53 AM
Would somebody please ask Rep. Scott Drury why he feels that he should work to violate the SecondRead MoreAm endment Rights of every citizen in the State of Illinois. I would like to know why he and his Federal Prosecutors Office NEVER went after the real issue in the Chicago Murder Rate... Criminal Gangs! Why have our prosecutors failed to pursue any charges against these vicious gangs, why? It is so much easier to blame an object, a gun... it can not defend itself and tell the real story. The story that we already know... the gangs are running Chicago!

Sure wil do.

Great evaluation of Rep. Scott Drury! The good old boys must go. We have gotten nothing but anRead MoreIll inois that isn't working for either its citizens or for keeping businesses in this state. The situation is deplorable with Illinois's credit rating almost at junk bond status. We must clean house. Dr. Mark Neerhof will bring with him a desire to serve the people and to stand up to both Madigan and the Republican leadership who too often are weak and inapt at standing up and fighting for policies that will move IL forward.

Dan - I couldn't believe my eyes when I read this on the patch: "Dan, RE/MAX Suburban hasRead Moreremo ved our sign. Please refrain from posting any more negative comments on our agents pages and remove our name from any of your posts. Thank you.&quot; It appears you have been spewing your pro gun hate speech on the pages of individual real estate agents because their office had a &quot;no guns&quot; sign? You sir are a lunatic.
Dan Cox March 17, 2014 at 11:46 PM
Marquez Grace, I Sir, got a Gun Free Zone sign removed from a business by asking them to respectRead Moreour Constitutional Rights! VICTORY! Oh, BTW...you can kiss my @ss!
Dan Cox April 12, 2014 at 10:03 AM
We the people have a Constitutional Right to Bear Arms. I oppose any infringement on ourRead MoreConstitutio nal Rights, against all enemies, foreign or domestic. If I were not a law abiding citizen, I would be over whelmed by a sense of Civil Disobedience and I would bash every window with a GFZ sign with a ball peen hammer!

There were multiple sightings today and she is still wearing leash & collar. So many peopleRead Morewere out in the area trying to help but Lexi is scared and runs. Although she has run across busy streets, she is in the area of Deerfield - wilmot, we go trail, holly, strathmore and the Walgreen corp are areas sighted. Please call the family (numbers above) or deerfield police with sightings or if able to catch Lexi.

forest barbieri, I enjoy my Constitutional Rights every single day. I do not get any Rights fromRead Morethe Supreme Court or any government bureaucrat. They can not give me, what has already been given to me by my Father, Grandfather and five generations more going back to the 1700's. That flag you see flying at the Post Office is there because of men and women who sacrificed everything, so we could stand in the light of Liberty and Freedom. I may be too enthusiastic for some folks, I do not care. I sleep well after I give hell to the tyrants and oppressors of H.P.

No Donna, Dan Cox does not have a constitutional right to post comments on the Patch.

I guess you as an "attorney" would know. I will defer to your vast legal knowledge. LOL

forest barbieri, Your welcome.
doug julin March 07, 2014 at 11:33 AM
Now this may differ state to state but as I understand it the "no guns allowed" signsRead Morewor k this way. If one is shopping in a store with NO no gun sign and someone gets shot the matter is between the shooter, the one shot and the police. If the store has posted a NO guns sign and the same thing happens the store is liable because by posting the sign patrons can sue because the sign said that there were no guns. Did I word that in an understandable way ? Bottom line is that the store is much better off without the sign.
Dan Cox March 09, 2014 at 07:24 AM
The GFZ signs are every bit as useless and silly as the Chicago "Safe Passage" signs inRead Moreth e Gang areas. The people there live with criminal gangs that murder their children and they feel / believe that those signs make a difference. WOW!
Donna Smith March 06, 2014 at 08:34 PM
Dan Cox - I'm only saying this for clarification...the shooting spree was the catalyst forRead MoreWinnetka 's hand gun ban in 1989, which is where the shootings took place. There wasn't a ban at the time of the shooting. That ban has since been repealed. She also legally purchased her weapons after passing a criminal background check. There was never an accusation of her stealing a weapon from anybody. After the ban was enacted there was another shooting in Winnetka in 1990, a young man shot and killed a Winnetka couple in their home. The hand gun ban did nothing to protect that couple.
Jordan S. Zoot March 06, 2014 at 08:44 PM
Davie....it seems clear that Grace had another type of nightmarish experience at cabin in theRead Morewoods. Seems it involved a Boy Scout leader teaching him what he would have to do if he was stuck in the woods and got a poisonous snake bite on his penis. Hopefully I don't have to get further into the story....if he reads it my bet is that he is traumatized all over again. I wonder if he thinks that an AR-15 looks like a snake.
Brian Dale Connolly March 07, 2014 at 08:53 PM
It does not matter how many people in hp want to be sitting targets. The ones that want to be ableRead Moret o defend themselves should be able to protect themselves with the weapon of their preference without some useless council member telling them what's best for them.
