    Greetings from the Home of the Brave but not the free.

    Hello All,

    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.

    Welcome to the forum from Southwestern Virginia. One word: MOVE
    There are a LOT better places in the U.S. to live than "The People Republik of Illinois" Places with a lot more freedoms.
    If every Pro-2A citizen in IL up and moved because of the State's anti ways, it would leave them high and dry. That would be a lot of lost revenue.

    I'm just sayin'.

    Welcome aboard.

    Welcome to the forum from Virginia.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
