Here is a video report out of Illinois where legislation being pushed by those opposed to the 2nd Amendment has stalled in the Illinois State Senate. Gun Control supporters thought there would be a vote yesterday on strict Gun Control legislation, but it never materialized – indicating that right now, they don’t have the votes.
In the video, notice who was at the forefront of a Gun Control rally yesterday – none other than Father Michael Pfleger, one of Barack Obama’s old radical Chicago buddies. If you don’t remember Father Pfleger, he’s a pal of Obama’s longtime Pastor – Jeremiah Wright, and he got in on bashing Hillary Clinton back during the 2008 Democratic Nomination battle in a “sermon” he preached at the church Barack Obama attended and supported for more than 20 years:
WASHINGTON SECRETS: President Obama’s home state of Illinois won’t be the first to approve post-Sandy Hook Elementary School gun control measures after all, thanks in part to the Second Amendment advocacy of the National Rifle Association.
The Illinois Senate pulled the plug on legislation to ban assault-style weapons and high-capacity ammo clips late Thursday, a stinging rebuke to Democrats and a wake-up call to the president and his supporters who think the Newtown, Conn. school child slayings will make it easy to pass gun control.
NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told Secrets Friday, “This was the first of many challenges gun owners and hunters will face this year. We will face many more and we need to keep our focus on those upcoming challenges.”
Gun advocates predict that the Illinois Senate will offer watered down legislation next year, likely limiting the number and types of guns to be restricted. “This is in no way a victory and nobody is doing a victory dance,” said a state gun advocate. “This is a minor win and we have to keep on.” . . .

One of President Barack Obama’s radical associates – Father Pfleger – has been suspended from his duties at his Chicago Church by Cardinal Francis George. The video above reports on protests near the Cardinal’s home by supporters of Father Pfleger.
You may remember Pfleger’s ranting during the 2008 Campaign in support of Barack Obama by attacking “whitie” and mocking Hillary Clinton:
HotAirPundit has even more of Pfleger, this time defending Obama’s radical pastor of more than 20 years – Jeremiah Wright.
NOTE: Pfleger was reportedly suspended for making comments that he would leave the Catholic Church if he was moved from his role as pastor to a position at a local high school.
