    Given what's going on in this Obama country, especially the hysterics about gu-gu-gu-guns, and around the schools, this kids got to be a complete brain idiot. Lock him up, and lock his parents up too — for a long long time. I can almost guess this wasn't a American-American.

    Just the FOID Card violation should be good for 10 years, but he is a minor worst case, he won't spend a day behind bars. Don't pass laws you don't intend to enforce.

    Imagine if everybody was allowed to carry weapons where would they leave them in their car and car is taken that's another weapon one the street with no background check in their locker t school . How would they get them if they have to put in a combination to get to it or would they be allow to carry on their belt. Send these hoodlum to Afghanistan to learn what it is really like to shoot someone or be shot at or worry about an ied.
