  1. Just going to continue to chase business to the burbs.

  2. Well that will be interesting to see how many cook county legal gun owners will buy out of the county.

  3. Politicians continue to try and tax their way out of the problems directly related to their incompetence as leaders.Cook County, Illinois ESPECIALLY ,has not seen any politician fix anything in a long long time. Cook County, Illinois politicians continue to drive businesses small and large OUT of Cook County , Illinois along with LONG time residents. I still own a home in Cook County but have purchased a residence in a neighboring state along with many people I know I will sell the Cook county property as soon as possible and move to my new home that is much more reasonably taxed,and the politicians actually solve problems and balance budgets with creative and innovative ideas instead of on the backs of residents. We are watching a bunch of Court Jesters try to rule like kings and queens even young children can identify the incompetence. So many social programs ,fraud/waste in the social program system and fraud/waste in every aspect of Cook County government that is directly related to what looks like criminal behavior of politicians. YES far and wide we are known as CROOK COUNTY governed by clowns.

  4. Well done. You just took a box of aluminum 9mm that sells for $9.97 and added $2.50 in taxes.

  5. To those of you who voted no, thank you. To the rest of you cocksuckers who the fuck died and made you God to do what you wish with our tax dollars. It seems like the harder we work the more you take I hope all of you assholes choke on the next meal you have and die a horrible death.

  6. […] a bill was filed in the Illinois house to end the Cook County Ammunition tax and Cook County Violence tax which are illegal infringements on the law abiding gun owner.  This […]

  7. And they wonder why so many people are moving out of Illinois. Cook County has never been short on idiodic laws. It’s easier to defend current freedoms than it is to try and get them back.

    This will also affect cops trying to stay current. Not all dept.’s have the budget to supply their officers with training ammunition. Sad.
