Illinois Considering Allowing Concealed Carry
#1
From http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/05/...-governor/

Quote:Gun owners could carry concealed weapons in Illinois, the last state in the nation to prohibit it, under legislation that swept through the House Friday with the backing of the powerful Democratic speaker from Chicago, a city torn by violence despite what critics claim are the nation's toughest firearms restrictions.

The historic 85-30 vote would allow the carrying of concealed guns, a legislative task compelled by a federal appeals court ruling and precipitated by House Speaker Michael Madigan's turnabout.

Well, with the court decision that is forcing this, if they don't pass it, unlicensed concealed carry becomes legal. So they have an incentive to pass something so that they can have some control over that activity.

I believe that part of John Lott's "More Guns, Less Crime" he referenced a study about how harder it is to get CCW's in states that adopted the laws later. more expensive, fingerprints, pictures, more restrictions, training requirements, etc.

With that in mind I can only imagine how asinine it'll be in Illinois.

no doubt that all applicants will probably have to surrender their first-born and exactly a pound of flesh.
