"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security..."

Mike Bost, a lawmaker in Illinois state house lambasted underhanded Democrats for inserting a may/may amendment into their concealed carry permit bill they had been debating.  Apparently, the day they were to vote on the bill, Bost discovered the new amendment which had not been reviewed or discussed prior to the day's voting session.

Mike Bost explained his outbursts in an interview with the Mount Vernon Register-News: 

“The amendment that was added to the bill we were discussing was a ‘may/may’ carry bill,” Bost said. “New York has a similar bill, and less than .01 percent of people get to carry. Under the amendment, someone would have to go to the local sheriff, who would do a background check, talk to people, then the sheriff may allow the person to petition the state for a concealed carry permit. Then, the state would do a background check and may issue a permit. That’s two mays and makes it almost impossible to get a permit. The bill was flawed and I explained that problem.”

It was when Drury said there were no “Constitutional scholars” in the House and accused Republicans of being two-faced that Bost took offense. Dury further commented, to boos from the other members of the House, that “we don’t want someone like that carrying a concealed weapon.”"You can’t say ‘our side of the aisle’ on this issue, it’s not about one party or the other,” Bost said. “There was screaming on both sides of the aisle because he overstepped his bounds. The bill failed miserably.”

This is the first I've ever heard of a 'may/may' bill or law.  Those liberals, those pompous-sanctimonious-Progressive-twit-Democrats are some low down scoundrels.

Our forefathers gave us the bill of rights, and the Second Amendment, so we are able to guard against an over-reaching, oppressive and tyrannical government; the kind of government Bost is scolding in this video.

Bost should be heralded for standing and railing against this infringement of liberty.
