Hi all, I'm retired, living in (very) rural So. Illinois. We're so far back in the woods that they have to pipe sunshine to us. We do have all of the modern amenities like central heat and a/c but I prefer to heat with a modern wood stove. That being the case, I spend most of my time cutting, splitting and stacking firewood. There's plenty of it here, free for the cutting. Our alternative is a 500 gal. propane tank. At roughly the same price as gasoline, the wood seems like a no brainer. It also gives me exercise and keeps me busy.
Here in our state, only criminals and gang bangers carry guns. We don't like it that way but the state seems to be run by the "uber libs" who control the entire Chicago and surrounding area. I own a home in Mexico also. That's the only place that's more restrictive regarding guns that I've ever lived in. There too, the criminals and drug cartels seem to manage to stay armed, keeping the law abiding citizens at their mercy (a figure of speech as they have no mercy).
I'm just wondering if there's any move afoot, considering the latest Supreme Court rulings, to bring some 2nd amendment justice and sanity to Illinois?
At any rate, I was told about this forum by a friend so I'll be interested to read what you're all about here.
