So is it about taxes and money or your second amendment right? You can't make up your mind can you
Donna Smith July 25, 2014 at 10:55 AM
Good point Steve S....it's about the tax revenue, it's Niles.

BTW Dan Cox when are they building a gun range in Round Lake? You know in YOUR community?

But, firing from a helicopter, which in the military takes a high level of skill and training, to rid a property of varmints that destroy and cause large economic losses to the owner, I do consider that hunting.

My, what a dull life you lead. If I spent all my time in HP, I might foolishly get the idea thatRead Morenot hing bad can happen here, just like you. But if you live your life like some folks, might you ever venture into downtown Chicago after dark? River North, Bucktown, the near west side to visit some awesome restaurants? How about some great blues on the South side? How about a night game at the Cell? Whatever!! What friggin' polyanna world are you living in? We can and do travel to these areas, but with a keen eye and with lethal protection. We believe that is the prudent thing to do, and as a suporter of the 2nd amendment with a CCL licence, an obligation as well. As for your "laser guided missile launchers" remark, I find your attempt at humor reprehensible considering the current war between Israel and Hammas, where such weapons are being launched at Israel by the hundreds every day.

Nice introducing your family to us. Oh wait, you had nothing to say about the ones that make youRead Morecli ck...you better edit this before they read and see how important you think they are in your life. Anyway, with all due respect I would contradict you to something: you say "it's your attitude that determines the outcome" I say attitude translates the outcome. We never control anything but we could put a spin on it to make it bearable. Soviet Union had a healthy attitude, from their point of view. So did George Bush the Little, from his point of view. Everywhere you look from losers to important people to countries to religions to anything...nobody could control any outcome...it just happen and they react to it, that's all. It sounds so nice to say "attitude controls outcome" because it puts some (fake) hope in people's minds that hey, I could do things. Nope, you can't do jack. Nobody did, nobody does, nobody will ever, not until we learn to control outcomes. (Alan and David thumbs up for your comments, nothing beats sincerity)
alan donahue July 20, 2014 at 07:17 PM
In my opinion, gun control laws in IL and HP should be handed directly over to Dan Cox forRead Moreauthorshi p. We need real gun laws that are written by real gun owners with real balls. Not women like Nancy Roettering.

Delusional Dan is back, ignoring his wife and kids to post incoherent ramblings about HP from theRead Moreba sement of his Round Lake rental. Don't you get tired of being so wrong and looking so stupid all the time? Better make sure you hide these posts from the family - or maybe they already know how much of an idiot you are and don't care? Maybe Mrs. Delusional Dan uses his postings to teach the kids what poor grammar, spelling, and persuasion technique look like: "Remember, children, you don't capitalize nouns in the middle of a sentence. And try to read slowly, so as to actually comprehend that which you are reading. Otherwise, you will look as uneducated as your father. Remember him? That nutjob in the basement that spends his life wishing he could be successful and live in Highland Park?"

Who in their right mind has enough time pay attention to four kids plus his Sandusky kid and spend as much time as he does on this silliness? I'd love to know the real story because there is NO WAY Robert Young has this much time, runs a successful biz and is father of the year. I bet the home life is pretty interesting. Poor kids.

" Dan Cox says 360 people packing a gun legally...I LOVE IT!" I say dude, you better outRead Moreo f the way if one of the 360 women in these guys' lives is not cheating on them...you know the guys will blow a fuse about instantly and disturbed people with loaded guns...neah...not a good combination. Why don't you visit Guatemala these days, they carry all right, it's carry a gun nirvana down there and is so wonderful they do what not even animals would do: abandon their kids, just pack them and ship them up north to not-so-easy-to-pack United States...maybe you should visit Tijuana as well, try Eastern Ukraine right about now so you could experience the happiness of being around civilians with guns. Or even better, find something in the constitution that allows people to carry rockets and let's turn Highland Park into Gaza hahahahha because that's what you have there, civilians with rockets. Well, now you're gonna have a lot of dead civilians with rockets but you get the point...civilians do not have the mental restrictions uniform put on you when carrying...they do not have a colonel to fear, a firing squad to face if they go crazy...so uniforms do not go crazy that fast, when they do it's big news while when civilians behave it's big news as most go crazy rather often and you want to arm them? You happy 360 of them are loaded now? Oh boy...I'm just saying...some women cheat, some employers fire good workers, some stoplights stay red too long, things happen and when they do you want to read about them not be a few feet from seeing it happening...

I'm curious if there's video of that "nail in the coffin" comment.
Running55 July 12, 2014 at 09:40 AM
Donna - if you look up the story the commission recommends the store but it's still pending village Read Moreapproval which is less likely.
Donna Smith July 12, 2014 at 11:51 AM
R55 of course it falls on everyone else to find any links to the story. I found the info on theRead MoreISRA website & Fox News Chicago. I was only wondering if there was video of the zoning committee and of Dan making his "nail in the coffin" comments to "end the protest" of the Moms against Guns group. But then again he's a blow hard and all these meetings end up being about him.
Walter White July 11, 2014 at 10:33 PM
Actually that's exactly why the NRA and KKK were formed (in the same year). To kill negroes.

You want a link, Donna? That's not in the arsenal of Delusional Dan the Keyboard Commando! HeRead Moreonly makes impulsive posts and shoots off his mouth without any evidence. Just the kind of guy we should be "happy" about walking around with his manhood substitutes.
David July 12, 2014 at 10:13 AM
Wake up people and realize the gun issue doesn't have to do with self defense and constitutionalRead Morerig hts, as much as it has to do with class warfare. There is a growing economic and social rift between "Round Lakers" and Highland Parkers and the working poor and upper class, in general. Notice the animosity Dan has for Highland Park. Now read the following quote: "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." Mao Tse-Tung
Steve S. July 09, 2014 at 11:57 AM
I don't think you know how to read Dan. The boycott was not against concealed carry in the store, Read Moreit was against open carry, just like the dummys in texas with their rifles at the sonic restaurant. Have you been to Zoot's place lately, did you see any of those illegals when you were there?
Dan Cox July 09, 2014 at 09:11 PM
Yet, the Two Gunned Plumber still shops LEGALLY in Target and do not even shoot the big TargetRead Moreoutsi de!
Running55 July 09, 2014 at 10:12 PM
Glad that you shop at Target, you should also try the Picnic Basket..OMG it's so good.
Steve S. July 07, 2014 at 09:14 AM
The point of this is the shooter, who was a CCL holder, was also in the MILITARY, Had to crouchRead Morebeh ind a car bumper to take the shots. NOT ONE PERSON WHO SHOOT TARGETS AT THE RANGE WILL EVER CROUCH BEHIND A WALL AND ACCURATELY SHOOT MOVING TARGET. Military training is the big difference here. Or maybe we can ask Jordan Zoot about it. Dan are you going to bail out your best buddy?
Walter White July 07, 2014 at 11:01 AM
Remember when Zoot called Dan extreme? MOAH!
Steve S. July 07, 2014 at 12:42 PM

R55 The gibberish is tedious and the result of a weak mind. I don't find Dan Cox entertaining oneRead Morebi t. I'm actually amazed one person can be so thick headed. But if you all find amusement in his blathering then I won't spoil everyone's fun.
Running55 July 06, 2014 at 06:01 PM
What's funny is Dan keeps getting his lies mixed up. Earlier this year he stated he refuses to work Read Morein HP but now he does? Who knows which it is. Still unsure if he will bring a loaded gun into a house with children without permission from the owner. I would use his plumbing services at your own risk.
Bringin' Down Briarwood July 07, 2014 at 05:54 PM
And the back peddling continues. Now you WILL do business in HP? Okay. I guess we can throw thatRead Moreout the window along with your boycott of HP businesses. And don't fool yourself, Dan. This has evolved to the point that nobody really gives a d@mn about your view any more. It's not about your suppose issues with what you consider anti-2nd (doesn't exist) or "liberals." It's just a form of intellectual m@sturbation as you've generally said above. You've been reduced to iritation as your goal. Nice. you've changed no minds and wasted an INCREDIBLE amount of time. Your credibility is long shot to h&ll. sure, just keep telling yourself that you're making a difference.
Walter White July 06, 2014 at 03:21 PM
Great point. There are so many responsible gun owners out there that favor smart gun control but we Read Moreonly ever hear from cowards like Cox because the NRA controls the discussion. My ex-special forces friend laughs at every one of his posts. He's seen enough assault weapons to know they have no place in the general public.
John Smith July 07, 2014 at 07:28 AM
gun free zones are naive. flawed logic. criminals, nut cases actually prefer gun free zones,Read Morebecause they know they won't be stopped. The theatre in colorado, high schools, the vtech university shooting and other universities, the church in MN, sandy hook etc.. What do they have in common. all "gun free" zones. It's unfortunate that guns are needed by law abiding citizens but that's the real world we live in. And millions can't afford HP, but this post is worthwhile because maybe it opens some eyes in a sheltered wealthy suburb like HP. Disarm the law abiding citizen, and you make them prey for the predators who don't care about FOID cards, cc licensing and naive "gun free zones".....you tip the balance of power in their favor...countless statistics support this concept, but so many people only understand the drivel their fed by liberal media types with a specific idealistic agenda....
Steve S. July 07, 2014 at 09:23 AM
Dan, I'm waiting for Zoot to chime in and help you out here, oh wait, he is in jail, where heRead Morebe longs, yet he was your buddy.....Hmmmmmmm, do you have illegal weapons in your house? If you do, you better think about getting them out of DJ's bedroom or you may end up as Zoot's roommate
Walter White July 06, 2014 at 12:33 PM
You're right Moe that's some great fiction!
HP senior July 06, 2014 at 12:51 PM
The Keyboard Commando spends all of his free time making up his craptastic stories, and says it'sRead Morefo r his own "entertainment". Dude has a wife, 5 kids, a supposed business, and spends his time making himself look like a jackass for the 5 or 6 of us who pay attention for our own entertainment. What a sad pathetic life he leads. Do you think he lets his wife and kids see his Patch posts? How embarrassing for them that he's always wrong, and his so very transparent envy of those of us who actually live in HP. Maybe if he focused more time on his family and business, he wouldn't be stuck renting a house in Round Lake...
Bringin' Down Briarwood July 07, 2014 at 06:06 PM

Running55 June 30, 2014 at 10:34 PM
