I also live in Illinois and it is a pain in the butt to not be able to have a concealed carry law. Everyone I know still can't figure out why. Still waiting for one.

If the issue were the continuance of slavery (in those states where the 2nd Amendment is demonized and restricted) we would feel compelled to go to those states and actively promote the immediate overthrow and permanent rejection of such appalling, outrageous infringement of constitutionally guaranteed freedom.

I hope that it will not be much longer before we see all infringements upon the 2nd Amendment definitively struck down for good!

I moved out of the People's Republic of Illinois and Crook County 10 years ago to Indiana and it was one of the best things I've ever done. As long as the state is run by fascist liberals they have no hope. Illinois is an embarrassment to the rest of the country in almost every way, not just second amendment issues.

It's how y'all vote......collectively.

Start voting a few of those ultra-libs out of office and you may see a change.

You can't buy a poodle and expect protection.:rofl:

If I voted the other way, I would have more problems to deal with other than my ability to carry my gun. You're right. It's how WE vote! And yeah. I'm a ultra-liberal and proud of it.

It is not being appealed to SCOTUS. It goes to the 7th District Court.

There is another case working its way through that could make this one meaningless. Or, it could turn even uglier.

IL had a majority who voted in favor of the concealed carry bill last year problem was because it created state preemption they needed 2/3 vote to get it passed and they fell a few shy. The problem is the Chicago politicians.

That's because those same politicians have either bodyguards or concealed carry themselves. Not happy with any of them. No shared sacrifice.

Look what lives in your state and what is sent to your state legislature and governor's mansion. It truly is sad that the good folks of Illinois are trapped in the abyss of lunacy created by those who believe they know better.

I heard a former Chicago police officer refer to Cook County as Crook County. He was talking about the corruption at all levels of government in the county. At the time I heard him say these things, he was a Fairfax County (VA) police officer.

I don't mean this to be offensive, however: If you sleep with dogs, you will end up with fleas. Understand the consequences of your actions before you cast your ballot.

I was thinking the same thing about you. The great thing about this country is no one person is superior to another. Time for your meds.

Yeah genius, that's why Illinois is losing jobs, raising taxes, and it's population is fleeing to states not being run (down) by Democrat leadership from top to bottom.

I don't take meds, don't need em. I get enough shock therapy watching morons vote democrat all around me, while the state we live in deteriorates from corruption, and the bond ratings predict bankruptcy.

No one person is greater in the eyes of the law, but the results of political leadership sure as hell are better where liberal whack jobs aren't in control.

I stand by my first post, and I have Illinois record to back me up. What do you have?

No I don't... the do nothings here are politically connected enough still to just get bailed out by the rest of the taxpayers. That's what allows the genius in this thread to keep votin' (D)... they know they will never be held to account. :steamed:

The problem is that there aren't enough downstate voters to over ride the hundreds of thousands of dirtbags in the city of Chicago that depend on their "paychecks" as a way of life. The same reps that backpeddled on concealed carry last year are the same ones that are under Madigan's thumb. The so-called governor of the state only carried 3 counties in the last election. Yes, he lost in the other 99 counties. What does this tell you? There are LOTS of people downstate fighting for concealed carry, but it's a losing battle.

You sound like those morons who sit at home and complain rather than doing something about it. If I truly lived somewhere and was miserable like you I wouldn't be on a computer whining. MOVE to a state where u will be "free" of us democrats.:tongueout:
