An Illinois legislator is apparently fed up with the sneaky tactics being employed by Democrats. Frustrated with the old sneak something totally unrelated to the bill into the bill routine, he just couldn’t take it anymore and let them know about it.

Watch the video below:

From TheBlaze:

Illinois state Rep. Mike Bost (R-Murphysboro) launched into a fiery tirade on the Illinois House floor after Democratic lawmakers attempted to sneak in what he considered to be a significant floor amendment to a proposed concealed carry bill. Bost’s outburst actually occurred on April 17, but was only lightly covered.

The House was debating the “may issue” proposal in regards to the state’s forthcoming concealed carry law when Bost lost his cool. The proposal would allow sheriffs to decide whether a citizen has a legitimate reason to carry a gun.

“Floor amendments should be some technical small change that we shouldn’t have to worry about like this. But yet you bring a whole bill that has questions whether it is even constitutional,” Bost said. “Folks, the process is really messed up. Quit! This is not the bill that everyone has debated…it is a ploy and once again your side of the aisle keeps trying to make ploys instead of dealing with the real issue. Keep playing games!”

“Do you know that one of the associations actually has a click-down of when we have constitutional carry in the state of Illinois? And you want to endanger your citizens and keep playing games like this? Vote no!,” he scolded, nearly ripping the microphone from his desk.

The “shall issue” concealed carry measure failed in the House later that day, getting 64 of the 71 needed votes.

“They say they are protecting you. They are looking for common sense legislation. Well, they asked us for all the common sense steps in the PATRIOT Act, and what happened to us? They gave us all of this infrastructure. They are bankrupting us on security. They have all kinds of cameras and trainings and you’ve got to jump through hoops at the airport, et cetera, et cetera,” Glenn said.

    That is not enough though, finish listening to the rest of the tape.  They were trying to shut him up.  Looks just like Washington – seems like the Democrats act that way all over the United States.  Boy!
