Mayor Daley learned it takes a lot of political capital to fight for gun control laws. Emanuel was put on notice tonight by Democratic Rep. Brandon Phelps, whose Southern Illinois district runs along the Kentucky border. In a phone conversation, he noted that the mayor's controversial speeding camera law would never have passed without Downstate support. Ominously enough, Phelps predicted that Emanuel "won't get anything else" through the State Capitol until he withdraws the handgun registration bill.
