For all those people who do not carry in certain places-like church. Man, I thought Illinois was a safe state, with all the anti-gun laws! I guess it just doesn't work-does it?
nice ebola pic.There as been a lot of push for CC in Illinois recently, especially in Cook County, one of the most strict areas. Little progress has been made but really don't know if we'd be better off with or without it.
Actually alot of progress has been made, the state congress passed a CCWThere as been a lot of push for CC in Illinois recently, especially in Cook County, one of the most strict areas. Little progress has been made...
Really? Criminals do not like armed victims; it makes for a hazardous work... but really don't know if we'd be better off with or without it.
I saw that stat but the arson rate in Chicago INCREASED so I suppose more guns = more arson...look for that one on the Brady site nextafter SCOTUS heller ruling crime in Chitcago actually DROPPED!
How could THAT be??? We ALL know less guns = less crime! Right?? Just ask that idiot Helmke! Or King Dick Daly!
LMAO!! Indeed!I saw that stat but the arson rate in Chicago INCREASED so I suppose more guns = more arson...look for that one on the Brady site next
How very liberal of you! I only lock my guns in the safe to keep them from getting STOLEN. I leave certain guns in certain areas of the house and have NO worries (well few) of my kids using them in a unsafe way. My house is rpolly one of THE best protected in the ghetto for this reason.We would need much more gun education or at least push locking them up safely.
Just to be factually accurate here the ccw law was not passed or vetoed by Quinn. It needed 71 votes to supercede Chicago home rule and to make it "veto proof". It failed with 65 votes but it is still alive and may come up for vote again this month.Actually alot of progress has been made, the state congress passed a CCW
law but it was not veto proof, and Quinn vetoed it, as he promised to. But
Quinn has armed escort provided by our taxes so what does he care? The
whole thing was kept fairly quiet by the MSM.
Really? Criminals do not like armed victims; it makes for a hazardous work
place. We are the last state without it, every state has shown that crime
drops when victims are armed. We also need to strengthen our Castle laws.
But then again if they keep jacking up our taxes I am gonna have to move...
Sounds like a good policy. Vote with your dollars; that's all the politicians really want anyway.I hope your Illinois bill goes right for you next time. I have a son that lives near the Chicago area. When we'd go to visit him, it was an eerie feeling to know I was traveling in a state that did not believe I have the right to defend myself! The last time we were up there, I told him we'd seen all the sights we needed to see in that area & we'd have to arrange to meet somewhere else the next time we saw him. So, last year he came to see us in Texas. I think Illinois has seen the last of my expendible money.
I think you might just have opened Pandora's box on that.....no disrespect.IGETEVEN said:That incident is indeed very sad.
Respectfully, where was God when this happened, especially since this man made his way into "his house" and committed such a horrific crime?
