Thread: For Illinois Residents; Concealed carry in Illinois

  1. Thank you. I stand corrected. I'm from Michigan and wish you the same rights we currently enjoy.

    And speaking of corrected, you might consider a spelling/grammar checker when you post replies:

    You may wanna check out the NRA-ILA website again. The Senate President is gonna try to cram an AWB through both houses starting on Wednesday when the lame duck session starts. They're gonna attach it to something, anything that's in the House. I'm REALLY worried about this. The last proposed AWB had provisions for annual gun and mag registration fees, arbitrarily fees that could be $1000 per firearm, $500 per magazine. Don't pay? Hand over your stuff or the ISP will come get you and youre going to prison. I'd venture to say that this new proposal will be the same. Goal to disarm. Posner would go ape if he had to hear another case involving IL violating the Second and this would most certainly end up in front of the Seventh. Anyone who lives in IL, contact your rep and Senator NOW. Apologies for going off topic but I feel like I need to disseminate this info to as many people as possible. I've been calling and texting people all day, they had no idea and have since contacted their reps and senators. This needs to be stopped FAST since the lame duck session only lasts 7 days.

  4. The law Cullerton is trying to shove though bans literally all modern firearms including pistoils, rifles and shotguns and provides for mandatory confiscation.

    Everyone 2A lover in illinois needs to get on the telephone tomorrow (January2) and call both their Senators and Representatives and start raising hell and demanding that they vote to defeat the Bill.
    A law abiding citizen of Illinois is a disarmed target waiting to become a victim

  5. @Bud,

    Already emailed my Representative and Senator, both are pro-2A and would never vote for this bill but still wrote them to show that I really care. Also spreading the word because it seems like most people won't say a thing and just expect their Rep and Senator to vote in their interest...apathy is the reason we have to deal with this. This legislation is downright frightening in that it is WORSE than Feinstein's bill. I have no doubt that if this bill passes and Quinn signs it, a federal judge will issue an immediate injunction given that it violates the Preamble, the Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments, maybe the Eighth too if the punishment is like 10 years for possessing an AR-15 and not handing it over. Why does this state love wasting so much money defending its blatantly unconstitutional laws? Oh, yes, because it's OUR money...gotta love that, using taxpayer money to defend laws that infringe upon the Constitutional rights of the taxpayer. The Seventh has gotta be getting sick of reversing/remanding anti-gun laws or sending them up to SCOTUS to be reversed/remanded.

    If at first, you don't succeed (in the Senate), try try again (on Sunday in the House). Thinking about making a hop to Springfield to watch this dog and pony show.

  8. For Illinois Residents; Concealed carry in Illinois

    These inept morons refuse to accept defeat on the issue of concealed carry. They keep losing when they introduce gun bans too and this latest one wasn't even close to being the first and I plan on another sometime near July because that's how long the Seventh gave them until July to pass a bill.

    NOW they've filed for an en banc rehearing of the Seventh's decision, and you should see the amicus briefs. One filed by the Brady Bunch on behalf the parents of Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis, some international cops organization (because US courts should give a crap about what Mexican cops think), and the "police chiefs of big ass cities" (that's my term for the organization...most beat cops with the CPD support CC but McCarthy abhors it, most ISP Troopers support it, Hiram Grau abhors it...notice a pattern). Yes, that's right, the Brady Campaign has stooped to a new low is Hell? Well, the Brady Bunch is lower than that.

    Though the case was won, Madigan intends to challenge the Seventh Circuit Court's decision and ask for a full review. The state is bankrupt, the state pension fund un-funded, yet Madigan, Gov. Quinn and the state legislators continue to spend tax payer dollars fighting settled law.

    Write Quinn, Madigan, and your legislators and present them with a win-win.

    Pass CCW and Illinoisans will GLADLY pay the (reasonable) permit fees. Florida, whose population is less than half of that of Illinois just issued it's millionth CCW permit. At a rate of $100 for the initial applicaiton, the state can generate over $100,000,000 in sustainable and renewable revenues to help improve our budget shortfalls.

    Open the IL CCW to non-residents, add more $$ to the states coffers.

    Here's the second win that you all already know about. CCW = less violoent crime.

    Write Quinn, Madigan and your legislators and explain the math to them.

    Increased state revenues = win
    Reduced violent crime in Illinois = win

    They must be made to see how THEY can advantage from supporting CCW. Politically a win-win, they cannot go wrong.

  11. Best of luck to you. With 60-plus percent of the population (and thus legislative representation) in the 4 Chicago Metro counties, the deck is stacked against you.

    People keep asking the wrong question ("Why are all these people being killed with guns?") and embracing the wrong answer ("Because there are too many people carrying guns."). A more correct question might be ("How can we help?"), perhaps answered with ("Let the good people of society who wish to do so arm themselves.")
