Chicago a city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the country had a deadly weekend of gun violence! The state that just recently passed legislation allowing citizens to Conceal Carry is not the shining example of Gun Control that the Anti’s would be proud of or bragging about if they had their way… it’s an aberration and despicable example of the Anti’s trampling of the 2nd Amendment.
Illinois Legislature passes concealed-carry bill; goes to governor
The Illinois Legislature has passed a concealed-carry bill in the last state in America that still outlaws all hidden firearms in public.
The bill, forced by a federal court ruling, now goes to Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn, a strong gun-control advocate who may nonetheless be forced to sign it.
If Quinn signs it into law, Illinois would become a “shall-issue” state, meaning applicants could only be denied for cause. But the legislation would generally make the state’s concealed-carry system more stringent than those of most states.
Clearly their trampling of the 2nd Amendment has NOT reduced gun crimes as they would like people to think. Time and time again we hear their mis-guided rhetoric that less guns on the streets means less crime. It would be very hard to decrease the guns anymore than what the Dems & Libs have already done in Chicago.
At least 9 dead, dozens wounded in Chicago during holiday weekend shootings
Gov. Pat Quinn said Sunday that such continued violence underscores why he dramatically altered a gun bill that will end Illinois’ last-in-the nation ban on carrying concealed firearms — a prohibition that’s been declared unconstitutional by a federal appeals court.
Quinn, who has advocated for a statewide assault weapons ban, spent much of the holiday weekend discussing the violence. He drastically altered a concealed carry bill that lawmakers sent to him, calling it a matter of safety.
Don’t think for a minute that Governor Quinn of Illinois is being forthright that he feels citizens should have the right to protect themselves. Most gun control laws and restrictions all across the country are being written, promoted and instituted by Democrats. Clearly the Governor is now in a position where Illinois’s denial of citizens rights to the 2nd amendment to “Keep & Bear” arms has been ruled unconstitutional thus prompting and forcing the state to license & issue CCW or Concealed Carry licensees.
Already the Governor is promising to alter the bill and include more restrictions!
Illinois Concealed Carry: Gov. Pat Quinn Uses Amendatory Veto, Wants To Make Gun Bill More Strict
Democratic Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn on Tuesday morning announced that he hopes to rewrite the state’s new concealed carry bill — approved by the legislature by veto-proof majorities — to be more strict.
Per a federal ruling, Illinois is facing a July 9 deadline by which it may no longer hold the status of the only U.S. state to ban concealed carry.
Supporters of the concealed carry “compromise” bill the Illinois legislature approved in late May said Quinn’s anticipated veto was being issued “for political reasons” ahead of the Tuesday announcement.
Why is the Governor’s actions not a surprise? Having been forced to institute a concealed carry law by the Supreme Court, the LAST STATE in the Nation to do so and now the Governor wants to re-write in more restrictions for law abiding citizens.
Bottom line is that until law abiding citizens who apply for, subject themselves to a background investigation, get fingerprinted, go through weapons training and concealed carry courses are certified that crime will remain high. As the number of licensees increases and the threat of a concealed carry weapons presence is deterrent alone to prevent many violent crimes from ever occurring.
