    New Defensive Carry member, working hard for CCW in IL

    Just joined the group and glad to see so many informed and helpful members. As most of you I am member of the NRA and also of Illinois Carry, USA Carry, Defensive Carry, etc, etc, etc. I am a Director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, life member- Front Sight Firearms Training(NV), Chairman, Friends of NRA Three Rivers Chapter, Joliet IL. I have CCW permits from NV, PA, FL, and UT. I am a disabled veteran USAF 1970-1974.
    I hope to see IL pass CCW this year! We are working very hard to ensure the law abiding citizens of our state and those passing through it have the God given right to protect themselves from those who would threaten their life or the life of family or friends. It's time for IL to respect the rights of it's citizens and pass concealed carry.

    Welcome, form Ky, thanks for your service, in all aspects, and keep pushing them in Il, they need to lighten up on their gun laws....makes me cringe ever time I cross the line, but just stay with the C.A.N.T. motto .......
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!

    Many IL citizens have left and now call some other state their 'home', and for good reasons. High Taxes, Governor's that just can't only serve the people, but then have to serve time also, Chicago politics, no CCW, the list goes on and on. I could find residence in another state and avoid the hassle of IL, but that's just not me. I served in the military and took an oath to defend the Constitution against enemies both foreign and domestic and I still believe in that oath. I now fight for our rights against the established 'Chicago Machine'. We will get CCW, because there are many more like me out there and we don't give up! Thanks for the welcome to the site.

    Thanks for your service. And thanks for your efforts to gain the right in Illinois that even Wisconsin enjoy's. Since we share a border I look forward to IL. becoming the 50th state to allow CCW for it's law abiding citizens.
