    New Member from Illinois

    Hi,
    I'm a retired Chicago Police Officer still residing in Illinois. Thanks to George Bush for signing HB218 into law, I can carry in all 50 states. Most of the police officers I worked with firmly believe in the 2'nd amendment. One thing I learned during my 31 year career is that bad guys are more affraid of armed citizens then they are of armed police officers. I look forward in participating in the site and advancing our cause.
    I'm a lifelong shooter and gun collector who believes that keeping and bearing arms is a given, not a right to be granted or taken away by some bureaucrat.

    Welcome from the New Orleans / Slidell area. Being ex-LEO you are luckier than most of the citizens in Illinois who can't even apply for a CCW permit. If you are looking for any sheep dogs up your way, sorry, you're it. We have a couple of ex-law enforcement guys working for our company up that way. They come down here to help me out every now and then - good guys!
    Cordially,
