.First and Second Veto Sessions have been canceled in the General Assembly.  There will be no more sessions until next year.  There is still work to be done.  That means we are going to see a Lame Duck Session after the New Year.  Lame Duck Sessions are simply regular sessions but some of the legislators have been defeated in their election, retiring from the legislature or leaving for a number of other reasons.  The point is that since they have no holds on them, anything can happen. This is a most dangerous time for citizens.  To override a veto it takes a 60% vote.  In a Lame Duck Session, it is simply 50% plus 1.  Why this is so important is that I expect SB1966 Amendment 1 to be called.   I believe there will be a push to get it passed.

In spite of the news media calling the Presidential Election for Joe Biden, votes are still being counted and re-counted.  At this point, lawsuits are being filed in several states by the Trump Campaign questioning the results.  President Trump owes this to his supporters.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) reports over 3.3 million background checks were performed in the month of October.  While many of those were for new or renewal Concealed Carry Licenses, the NSSF estimated about 1,100,000 background checks were for firearm purchases.  The number of new gun owners in the United States is estimated to be around 6.9 million.  To get a perspective on how many people, that is the states of Indiana and Tennessee which have about 6.9 million citizens each.  Let’s hope this trend continues.  At the risk of making everyone sick, the next Election is only two years away.

In approximately 100 hours Election Day will be here.  President Trump has been barnstorming in the critical swing states like Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan.  For gun owners it is all on the line.  If Joe Biden wins, which it looks like he just might, gun owners are in for a fight for their lives.  If President Trump wins, we will see the anti-gun emphasis swing back to the states.  In Illinois that is nothing new. Go vote.

October has a Blue Moon on the 31st.  The harvest season is well underway and by the 31st most of the crops will be out.  The weather will be turning cold and the deer will be in the rut.  These are perfect conditions for encountering one of these creatures with the front end of your vehicle.  Deer accidents can occur anywhere but they most often happen near streams, bridges and wherever there is cover.   They really like to move when the moon is high so the next couple of weeks will be busy.
