Illinois CeaseFire in Some Hot Water

Well, well, Thirdpower (who now that he has a blog, and is getting Hardy and Uncle links, should think about moving off of blogspot) finds another anti-gun group ends up with some money troubles.

The organization started in 2000 and is run by the University of Illinois at Chicago. CeaseFire received $16.2 million for the fiscal years between 2004 and 2006. The state funded the majority of its total, $11 million. The audit comes days after Gov. Rod Blagojevich cut more than $6 million in funding for the group.

Let me tell you, if I were down state, and I found out my state government was spending 11 million a year to fund a group that was dedicated to removing my constitutional rights as an American, I would throw a fit. I think it’s time people downstate started getting together and burning the Governor in effigy. We don’t do nearly enough of that these days, and it was always fun back when it was royal governors, which Blagojewhateverthehellhisnameis is dangerously close to becoming.
