    Thank God we will soon get concealed carry. Now maybe some of us will be able to defend ourselves.

    You can also watch your crime rate go down.

    Doubtful. I almost guarantee the first CCW to use his weapon in self-defense in any of the population centers will be strung up by his neck by a liberal, gun-hating jury. Kind of discourages others. Illinois has a LONG way to go before it gets back on track.

    Here is how Chicago's Chief of Police feels:
    McCarthy is angry that Illinois has joined the other 49 states in the union that have authorized some level of concealed carry. In an recorded interview McCarthy issues a not so thinly-veiled threat that under his leadership, Chicago Police will shoot concealed carriers:

    “You put more guns on the street expect more shootings,” McCarthy said. “I don’t care if they’re licensed legal firearms, people who are not highly trained… putting guns in their hands is a recipe for disaster. So I’ll train our officers that there is a concealed carry law, but when somebody turns with a firearm in their hand the officer does not have an obligation to wait to get shot to return fire and we’re going to have tragedies as a result of that. I’m telling you right up front.”

    Is that not communicating threats?

    If you live in or are visiting Chicago, be careful around the police (keep it concealed, defend yourself then put it away), until they get retrained.

    Really Illinois isn't the last state to get concealed carry. Hawiaii has "May Issue" carry in theory but in practice has yet to issue a single permit.

    The law is there on the books, i think that that is what some count. The other thing about Hawaii is that it is not a statewide permit, it is only valid in the county of issue. Too damn many libs in hawaii, And most every metro (urban) locale

    My note about crime rate going down is via crime stats.
