Illinois gun laws are crazy, voice your opinion!
Blame Chitcago. That city basically runs the entire state. Everything else is rural for the most part.
Roum E. is your new Dictator.
I always think of this scene when I think about IL gun laws.
Blame everyone else. Chicago is Chicago, they have never changed.
There's 12.9 million people in Illinois...only 2.7 million of them live in Chicago...and that even includes all of the damn felons that can't even vote anyways.
Only 3.5 million people voted in 2010 and quinn won by 32,000 votes. This isn't Chicago's fault. it's our fault and it's time we grew up and accepted responsibility!
It's people who say "blame chicago, my vote doesn't count" that put people like Quinn in office, and screw the rest of us in every way. (not aimed you, i'm sure you actually voted)
There are 63 democrats and 54 republicans in the State House... All 54 republicans support concealed carry.
There are 35 democratic senators and 24 republicans in the State Senate...all 24 republicans support concealed carry.
98 vs 78 ... of the 20 that make up the difference, we've already converted 6 (and counting) and there are rumors of 17 others that "want" to support it but see no point since Quinn would "Just veto it anyways"
The only factor missing from this equation is a Governor worth a damn. Chicago doesn't have the numbers to vote in "their guy" if the rest of us decide to show up. We *ARE* The majority. It's time we started acting like it.
Vote. Every election. Every time.
had to edit my numbers. I apologize for the mistake.
You hit the QuinnRahm right on the pinheads!!!!
thank you but for clarification i got my #'s mixed up...the premise remains the same though =)
It's REALLY BAD when California and New York are less strict on Gun Laws than we are.
Time to march into those booths and change it once and for all
+1 guys i'll be voting this state blows big hairy elephant testies. FOID card alone is arcaic and stupid
Oh it'll be the day when Illinois grasps the concept that gun control doesn't stop gun crime!
Illinois, in the sense of "the majority" has long since grasped that concept
it'll change when those who agree get off their lazy behinds and actually vote.
Like I said earlier...we are the majority. I could provide way too many examples to prove that...all it takes is showing up and proving it.
In general where I live (Chicagoland area) guns are seen as a bad thing to many, unfortunately.
If I may, I ask you to please consider this as a possibility
Perhaps it's just the people you pay attention to that think guns are a bad thing (Chicagoland area)
Look at how many gun shops are in the immediate Chicago Area (a very generic, very quickYelp.com search yielded 15 results)
Bass Pro Shops
All of those, just a start, thrive in the Chicago area, selling lots of guns & ammo.
Edit to add
You can search on this site by zip code to see all of the FFL dealers

There's over 200 in the first 10 zip codes for Chicago....we are the majority.
Really? A lot more than I I thought.
We're better than California in some areas, such as there is no such thing as a IL compliant gun whereas a lot of guns have to be slightly modified and stamped CA compliant to be legal in CA.
I agree with the PorkChop. I have four gun shops within a 25 minute drive, Bass Pro, Rinks, Freddy Bear and Mega Sports. All of them are busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest every time I go there. That tells me there are far more people around here that are interested in firearms. It's the vocal minority that makes you feel that most people think guns are bad. On Sunday I we are having some friends over, old friends of my wife. I am taking the husband shooting, the kicker is that his wife is the biggest Lib I have ever met, yet she is fine with him going shooting with me. He's a country boy from southern IL, why they got married I'll never know. I was shocked when my wife suggested I take him shooting.
Just because she is a Lib doesn't mean she agrees with everything the other idiots agree with. I consider myself a mutt of the political world because I agree with stuff all over the board.. That is awesome that you are taking him shooting. Me, ZG, and my daughter are going shooting today.
How long do you think it's going to take?
2014 I hope ... Long long long long ways away
But we can hold onto our hopeful tomorrow by voting Obama out now
