Actually Wisconsin just passed CCW law. So Illinois is the last state, not to
have CCW. We actually passed a CCW law in Illinois this year but Dictator

The FOID card system started in '68 right after the riots. It was a precursor

Hear on the local radio today that a man in Chicago (Englewood) was
attacked by two men, one was armed with a pistol. They forced the man
into his home to rob him and the residence. The victim was able to wrestle
the firearm away from the two men and shot them. I believe one died and
the other is in the hosiptal after the victim shot the two thieves. Chicago is
not pressing any charges on the victim and per Illinois the surviving thief
cannot sue the victim for damages in civil court.
