A new law in Illinois now requires you to show photo ID and have your name, address and DOB recorded to buy drain cleaners, and other caustic chemicals…
“Buying a bottle of Drano won’t be the same in Illinois beginning Sunday.

And HERE is a link to one of the sponsors with a rather interesting statement in it…
Chicago resident Esperanza Medina, who lobbied on behalf of the bill, was injured in an attack orchestrated by her lover’s wife. The woman who organized the attack was sent to prison for 44 years.
Um… so her lover’s wife got even, went to jail for it, and they STILL voted this in??? I cannot find any statistics as to the actual number of occurances, but still…
Now we CAN’T require people to actually have a valid photo ID to vote, so what’s going to happen when these same people want to buy a can of Drano?
Is the ACLU going to jump in and sue the state for disfranchisement of their poor people who can’t buy their Drano???
What about just prosecuting the perps to the limit of the law, like the lady that got 44 years???
I mean really, where does this crap end???
