Mark Kirk vs Alexi Giannoulias: pipe down, gun nuts!

Giannoulias' young, handsome face may be his greatest asset in a year where his vaunted Chicago connections will have to be used quietly, lest he be tied too closely to President Obama.

    I suspect the most effective approach would be to confront these two gentlemen with the McDonald case ... the outcome of which should be known by June or July ... plenty of time before the election.

    If they still don't believe Heller changed their gun-ban playbook, perhaps they will be convinced by McDonald.

    Most gun owners in IL are preparing to vote for a 3rd party candidate for the senate. If no 3rd party candidate appears, there will be a write in campaign. Work on who will be written in progresses...............

    There is a Libertarian Candidate that is Pro Gun that is on the ballot.

    The Case has been decided and Chicago has lost.

    Confront the Candidates and get their stance. If they balk, then it is time to vote Libertarian.

    Michael Labno is the Pro Gun Libertarian Candidate.

    Susu, you're the first person I've heard say that. Do you have a candidate in mind? I haven't seen anyone coming up who can mount a serious challenge to either Kirk or Giannoulias.

    Is there a candidate you've heard people talking about?

    Confront the Candidates and get their stance. If they balk, then it is time to vote Libertarian.

    Michael Labno is the Pro Gun Libertarian Candidate.

    the only answer for Illinois is a third party candidate

    There is no way a single candidate can fix the ills of Illinois. The people must weed the state of all corruption. There needs to be recall petitions and tons of education. As with all problems, the people are the solution. It would send a great message if a write in campaign could be used to elect a candidate that the people want.

    Libertarian is a good start:

    Confront the Candidates and get their stance. If they balk, then it is time to vote Libertarian.

    Michael Labno is the Pro Gun Libertarian Candidate.

    find out why Alexi is more conservative than Mark Kirk at

    This is exactly why I am going Libertarian as the Republicans have forgotten their core values and will sell their soles to the Devil to get anything they want. Rather than stand for values worth standing for.

  • carydc 4 years ago

    Alexi and his family background speak volumes. Kirk just misspeaks himself quite a bit.

  • Doug Marks 5 years ago

    There is a candidate that fully supports the second amendment, Mike Labno, Libertarian Party. Lest we forget, there are more than two parties running for election.
