|Ill. Sen. Dan Kotowski|
Kotowski is a Democratic Illinois State Senator (D-28) with a district office at 350 S. Northwest Highway, Suite 300, Park Ridge, IL 60068.

Why is he dangerous?
He attempted to railroad the concealed carry bill, and he hasn't given up.
According to a long Associated Press article on Friday (only partially published in the Northwest Herald print edition today), Kotowski wants to ban guns from places of worship. Supposedly, he told the AP reporter that "providing churches with a specific exemption was an oversight that some lawmakers were unaware of until the legislation was debated."
How's that for a statement that doesn't mean anything? Lots of words. No meaning.
OK, so legislators were aware of it when the legislation was debated. And they decided (read: negotiated) to leave it out.
Sorry, Danny boy, you lost. Now you are whining. Just shut up!
I don't wish harm to anyone or any organization. But if Kotowski, identified in the AP article as a "former gun-control lobbyist", gets such a stupid change in the new concealed-carry law passed, I hope somebody will identify Kotowski's church so that the police can increase patrols during services and protect the congregation, which will feel much more at risk - thanks to Kotowski.
Making a gun-free zone out of a church? Dumber than dumb!
NOTE: (8/4/13 10:47AM) Readers, please read my apology to Sen. Kotowski. I should have stayed on the issue, and it was wrong to make the personal attack on him.
