Default Interesting interview.........

Here is a podcast of an interview on the radio station I listen to. Paul Green is a political scientist professor and he is very anti-gun. Greg Jarrett is the radio personality who puts up an excellent argument for conceal carry. Paul Green shows his ignorance on the subject and definitely doesn't have his facts together.

I can't que this up for you exactly but the subject of conceal carry starts a little more than the halfway point. Please take the time to listen and see what a fool Paul Green makes of himself and how well informed the radio personality is.

I was reading in the paper today (Bradenton Herald, page 2) that your Governor, Pat Quinn, stated on Tuesday, he is opposed to concealed carry legislation, and will veto the bill if it passes. He said, "allowing private citizens to carry loaded weapons is dangerous and would be detrimental to public safety".

I'd like for him to show the statistics and proof on that one.

^^^oops didnt see that last post Car54

i'm pretty sure Quinn went on record yesterday and today saying he would veto it citing how "unsafe it would make illinois due to road rage for example......" in his typical clueless mumbling manner...

it took a simple majority to pass it in the house, and i think they need 3/5 to over ride the veto.

we'll see.

I don't know how the politicos can keep saying that it's dangerous. Can't they see the statistics in all the other states that have conceal carry? The facts are right there!!

As to the post I quoted here, this is a perfect example of Progressive/socialist mentality, THEY know whats best for you despite the facts!

They don't care about what works, it has nothing to do with lowering crime whatsoever. It's about control, it's always about control.

I'm not ready to conceal carry yet but if this passes I am going to try to qualify for a CC permit. I just want it.

6 votes short of passing, needed 71 and only got 65, so i guess it never got out of the house to get vetoed... oh well..slightly expected to say the least.
