truly, i have always hated the "If you dont like it, your free to move" thought process.

Its time for the citizens of Sillinoise to RISE UP ENMASS and bring about the change so they can quit being the laughing stock of the nation! (this also goes for Kommiefornica)

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
Quinn vetoed it and we did not have enough votes to overturn the veto, 3
short, IIRC.

The FOID card system started in '68 right after the riots. It was a precursor
to the NICS system and is now outdated with instant check; but old
outdated laws still persist. Keep in mind we do not register hand guns or any
guns in Illinois. So the police do not know what guns I own or do not own.

Illinois is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be, the County of Crooks is
where the real problems exits, but that is eroding slowly. Actually in Illinois
per State Law Open carry is legal. Most Municipalities do not allow open
carry as well as many counties which is allowed, but my county does not
forbay it, so I can strap it on an march down the road to my neighbor very
legally.

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.

Your gonna have to move soon because they are taxing all the business out

I know this very well. A good friend of mine just moved his entire business to KY. They were able to buy a 50,000 sq foot warehouse for the cost of one years lease up here. That alone was worth it for them. Then factor the tax advantages and it was a no brainer.

I work for a chemical company and our HQ is in VA. I can live anyway and
my main customers are all over the North America. Any more taxes and I am
bailing.
