    Howdy from IL.

    As a correctional officer here in the Peoples Republic of Illinois i feel it is important for concealed carry to be available to those that need it most. I can't recall the number of times i have stood in line at a checkout counter and heard someone say my name only to turn around and see a former inmate. They always remember you (some with good intentions and some not) even if you don't remember them.
    We have one Governor in prison and another on the way but still no CCW law. If i were younger my heading would read " Howdy from South Dakota " .....ah well maybe when i retire.
    Anyway i spent 7 years floating on carriers in the Navy and 10 years as a car mechanic before landing a job as a prison guard.

    rant over

    Welcome from Florida Sir, and Thank you for your service to our Country. I can not say I agree with your choice of a State of residence though. Sorry

    Greetings from a former resident of Illinois. I miss my friends but not the political climate. I really miss decent pizza...
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
