Early this morning, a fellow gun rights activist reached out and brought a post to our attention here at Mom-At-Arms:

Illinois as many know is a state that is under lockdown. What does the Governor say is the “key” to re-opening the state?

SPRINGFIELD — As Illinois' COVID-19-related death toll surpassed 4,000 Friday, Gov. J.B. Pritzker said the state is focusing on expanding the number of tests performed each day — an effort he said is critical to reopening the state’s economy.
Pritzker said Illinois now has 251 sites that offer free testing, including seven drive-thru locations in Markham, Bloomington, Harwood Heights, Rockford, Aurora, Waukegan and East St. Louis. Illinois is now routinely processing more than 20,000 tests per day.

So who pays for the tests? The government, of course.
