Are legislators in reality brewing up poison combinations in the Bills they are passing to accommodate “marijuana regularization.?”

The Chicago Tribune – NY Times Editorial articles titled: About Brittney Griner contained this following statement:

“States across the Nation have come to understand that marijuana regularization is overwhelming popular, morally right, a boon for public safety and racial justice.”

Another Chicago Tribune Opinion Editorial titled For Cooper’s sake, close loopholes that weaken Illinois gun safety laws, reported

As the Tribune reported Sunday, attempts by the Illinois General Assembly to ramp up gun safety in recent years have left behind loopholes that still give people who shouldn’t have guns the ability to obtain, or retain, firearms.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient wisdom verse and a word definition to this conundrum.

King Solomon

31Do not gaze at wine while it is red, when it sparkles in the cup and goes down smoothly. 32In the end it bites like a snake and stings like a viper. 33Your eyes will see strange things, and your mind will utter perversities.…(Proverb 23:32)

Definition of poisonous – Merriam Webster


2a: having the properties or effects of poisonpoisonous gas

b: producing a toxic substance that causes injury or death when absorbed or ingestedpoisonous mushrooms also: VENOMOUSa poisonous spider


What’s My Point?

The emphasis by politicians in Illinois to close loopholes on poisonous gun sales is missing the other poisonous ingredient necessary to regulate Issuance of FOID card.

The Highland Park shooter was a stoner who at the age of 21 could legally purchase legalized recreational marijuana medically proven as a mind-altering substance that the shooter admittedly was high on when he carnage his victims.

My point is the State needs to refuse FOID cards to stoners to close up the loopholes to prevent persons from obtaining guns in Illinois along with the other present known reasons.

In My Opinion

Poison is a concoction of ingredients which may not be harmful until mixed with other ingredients to become deadly.

Guns and Drugs are similar in effect if we consider that there are presently 400 million guns in the USA that are not being used to shoot, kill or maim victims.

However, when combined with a mind-altering drug such as marijuana and more potent drugs are being used for criminal purposes poisening our communities.

Add that a local DuPage Sheriff stated than 80 percent of the inmates in his prison are drug users, addicts or have mental issues related to drug addictions.

Add that the majority of crimes are drug related shootings or shooter who commit crimes to feed the drug addictions.

In other words, the reality is until the Second Amendment is overturned by legislators which is no small undertaking, closing up State loopholes is the only option available in reality.

 FOID cards should not be issued to stoners if States want to titan up loophole requirements which the Highland Park Shooter admitted to using when he carnage his victims.

In my opinion, guns and drugs are a poisonous combination in our society and always will be same as was in ancient times fueling stoners “Your eyes will see strange things, and your mind will utter perversities “

You Decide

Will our legislators ever wise up to discern that just because “marijuana regularization is overwhelming popular, when combined with guns, it will never be “morally right” or “a boon for public safety and racial justice.” Rather it is a poison many legislators agreed to not because it was wise but many because it was “overwhelming Ing popularly which is one keyway to be voted into office.
