Greetings from the Home of the Brave but not the free.
I am a 48 year old father of two who loves hunting, fishing and shooting of all types.
Living in the shadows of one of the most liberal and corrupt cities in the world (Chicago) and having to put up with some of the most oppressive gun laws in American has not deterred me from taking my responsibilities to myself and my family seriously. My wife and kids are all shooters and have a good understanding of human nature and the wisdom to know that not all of us are good people. (My oldest was in Cole Hall at NIU on Valentine's Day three years ago).
He survived because at a young age I taught him the principles of fight or flight.
Illinois is now debating concealed carry, I enjoy this forum mostly because it is filled with like-minded people who support one another and more importantly, the Second Amendment.
