    New guy from Illinois

    Hey Gang

    I'm from the north suburbs of Chicago. I'm a 30 year police veteran, still on the job. I also have a leather business concentrating in concealed carry holsters. Most of my holsters get sold to fellow peace officers because as you all know, Illinois very plainly "sucks" for gun owners. I think you all may be amazed to know the number of Illinois peace officers in favor of changing the law to allow CCW permits being issued to our citizens.

    Welcome to the forum, Randy. I have met many an officer that thinks people should be allowed to protect themselves. Glad to have you aboard.

    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Welcome from West Tennessee!

    If so mane LEO's in IL want the laws changed, then I urge you all to band together and work with the citizen organizations who seek to have those laws changed.

    It's well know that the rank and file of most Police Departments are Pro CCW. It's the Chiefs and Commissioners that are anti's mostly due to political reasons. Anyway welcome aboard!
