It would be interesting to compare numbers and per ratio of Vermont and Illinois.

Done:

Illinois rate for Murder and Non-Neglibent Manslaughter=5.6 per 100,000 inhabitants.

Vermont rate for Murder and Non-negligent Manslaughter= 1.3 per 100,000 inhabitants.

I think Illinois should "Ban" voting. The people of that state have a long history of electing crooks.

When I lived in Louisiana, Edwin Edwards was running (again) for governor.

The rally cry of the people was "We know he is a crook, but he is our kind of crook!"

Yes and they continue to elect crooks. Is it Mary Landru the Obama witch that that supports gun control?

The last I knew Vermont would not issue a CCW for travel out side the state. There are some states that will honor a Vermont drivers licenses as a CCW.
