"It's the best thing in the world, Illinois is so backward it's unreal," said Chris DeYoung, owner of the Glenwood Gun and Pistol Range. "Illinois should have had a carry [provision] years ago."The city still has a very restrictive gun law. (This from the leftie Chicago Reader) We could use a more polite society in Illinois.
DeYoung said lifting Illinois' ban would help keep crime down in the state, especially in Chicago where he said crime is rampant. He pointed to recent mob attacks where large groups have been targeting people to rob.
"When everybody is armed, it's a very polite society," said DeYoung.
Illinois lawmakers recently narrowly voted down a measure that would have ended the ban in the state. Had it passed, Gov. Pat Quinn had promised to veto it.
...It seems that the liberal elites with taxpayer-funded bodyguards are the only ones opposed to a common sense concealed carry law.
