dont get too happy yet.

the criminals in charge of the state will liekly adopt a california ccw plan or a new york plan where no one but political cronies get one. or permit ccw but not within 5 miles of a school or government owned property including roadways or something along those lines.

you still have "ccw" but no average person can get one.

It's a big step forward in any case.
I am thinking that the law to be drafted will be forced to be very restrictive but again, it's reasonable slow steps will be taken.
My concern is, in the more dense areas, Chicago and local suburbs like my area(south side) that they stick to a SOLID class to train people who want to carry. While i know most appreciate a gun here and the intended uses for them. I don't think people who just "do it cause they can" are good. I think a weekend class is ideal, not sure what other states require.
With this you'll see certain taxing of ammo and fire arms too now. The state will compensate for those who didn't get to keep it their way.
Sadly, I am hoping to leave this area or even state once I graduate since our crime is pretty high, the drivers are obnoxious and the taxes are the highest in the country(2011 I think) but I understand most states have their problem areas.

The progressives will disregard the ruling just like they have in the past!

I confirmed with my state Rep's office that it is a "Shall issue" ruling. Not a "May issue ". HUGE difference and great news!

It is a HUGE step in the right direction, but I fear we are not out of the woods yet. I've been in this state too long to not be a skeptic. I am very happy and somewhat encouraged but I will wait to celebrate until I get my CCL in my pocket.
