I say every law abiding citizen that legal possesses firearms we all head to Chicago and DEMAND right to carry. We the people outnumber those bastards. What would they do? Arrest everyone??

So since then i've made it my personal goal to knock some sense into everyone I run into on a daily basis that says that. (im not saying you said that...just stating a personal mission of mine in passing)

Chicago decides nothing "For us" they just want it more than we do. That can easily change.

12.9 million people in Illinois

5.2 million people in Crook County (Of which, 2.7 million reside in Chicago)

"We" are the majority. "We" just have to start acting like it
Results from the 2010 Illinois Governor's race. Red = counties voted Republican. Blue = counties voted Democrat.

That's fine ... Governors are elected by popular vote not electoral ... So if 5 people voted in one county for republican... That county goes red but does nothing to compete with the 5000 people who voted democrat next to them

Illinois problem is lethargic behavior... It's too easy for most people to sit around and blame Chicago than to get off their duffs and just go vote

What good would that do? Chicago does not make the laws (even if they think they do). A better course of action would be to attend the next IGOLD in Springfield, write your local and state politicians and become active in the ISRA. And yes if you went into Chicago with a handgun, there is very good chance you would be arrested or worse.

Your more then likely right, but admit its not fair to all them innocent that just want to protect themselves or family. If I lived there I would i conceal in Chicago, I mean my life is more important then some anti carry law. Life over law I'd fight a case before I'd let some punk thug take me or my family's life.

I don't think you're morally wrong, the sad part is, you might save your life, or your family members life, but you'll be spending the next 5-10 (or more) in Prison because it's a serious offense in Illinois (even if you can prove it's justified)

My apologies Scott, i'm not sure if you had posted that to help accentuate the point or to argue against it? But to further the point I was trying to make, I dug up some county election results ... those incoming very soon

What I meant was I did not know if you had posted the Map to say that Chicago *IS* the problem or to support the idea that Chicago is not the problem =)

It's no secret you're not a Quinn fan
