An Associated Press release said thursday that IL. Gov. Pat Quinn said he has no problem with IL. being the only state where it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon.
Quinn stood by his opposition to letting residents carry concealed guns--just days after lawmakers in neighboring Wisconsin passed a law to lift that state's ban.
Quinn maintains most IL. residents don't approve of concealed weapons. He said public safety must come first. Quinn feels that in too many places in IL. there's a violence epidemic and he believes allowing citizen's to arm themselves would only add to the problem.
Wow! If ever there was an egotistical, self-delusional, uninformed idiot, Pat Quinn takes the cake. He actually believes that he is right and the rest of the country is wrong about concealed carry laws. How would he even know that most IL. residents don't approve of concealed weapons. The only people he talks to are other IL. thugs and political "yes" men with an occasional Chicago hoodlum who, of course are against concealed carry by honest citizen's. They don't want the competition. They prey on unarmed sheeple. Why doesn't he retire like his buddy Dick Daley and give the honest citizen's in IL. a break for a change?
