    Illinois gun fan, in the toughest gun state in the US

    Hello everyone, my name is Bill and I have been a gun fan since I was a young boy. Unfortunately I live in a state that has tough gun laws, Illinois. We are in the midst of a battle for conceal carry that was orderd be the US Suprem Court that stated our gun laws were unconstitutional, must of us realize what the 2nd Amendment means but some in our state (NE Cornor) seem to think the know whats best for all of the state, oh well we will see.

    Anyway I am a retired Postal employee after 23 yrs before that I had my own construction co, I am also a VietNam Veteran who served with the 101st ABN as an Infantryman (Grunt) I am married with one daughter and 2 grandkids and love guns. I have been reading some of the forums and found them quite informative and interesting so signed up to join in, thanks for having me!
