    Pike County voters overwhelmingly approve conceal-carry ordinanc - Quincy Herald-Whig | Illinois & Missouri News, Sports

    And Adams county, next door to Pike, seems to be moving in that direction as well.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Good progress! so people in the county can now apply? but can't leave the county concealing? or can they not apply until the entire state allows it?

    From the article:

    "Pittsfield chiropractor Dan Mefford spearheaded the ballot issue which he said had wide support from Democrats, Republicans and independent voters.

    As far as I'm concerned, it's a poke in the eye for the thieves of liberty," Mefford said. "It's a thing whose time had come."


    ^^^^^This is important. ^^^^^ Gilgamesh or Plato or <inset your name here> would understand.

    I applaud this bravery by the Pike County Sheriff and the Pike County voters. The first Humans were armed, dangerous, and smart. We should be too. Now for the musical interlude.

    Congratulations to the citizens of Pike Co. Maybe someday I'll consider moving back to my home state!

    Wow... That is great... If the other counties follow suit this can end up getting the entire state to follow ...

    Awesome!

    I'm confused. The article says the voters approved CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY. I'm to understand that means non prohibited persons can carry open or concealed except in prohibited places. But later in the article it mentions LICENSING REQUIREMENTS.

    Hey Illinois, it's the first step, and in the right direction. Hopefully, enough will get on the bandwagon, and convince the honest folks in Cook County to go with the flow. Good Luck!!!

    Every journey begins with that first step.

    Here's hoping the rest of the state will wake up and follow suit.

    "If you're basically carrying in public, you keep your weapon in a pocket or holster and that's where it stays. It doesn't come out for any reason unless life and limb are in danger," Mefford said. "You don't show it to people, don't take it out and play with it."

    words well said and just for the record we don't talk about having one on us to others

    I think this is a potentially bad idea. What happens when someone leaves the county with a concealed weapon and gets pulled over. If they start saying that Pike County approved it or something along those lines it could lead to trouble. THe problem is that Illinois is governed by anti-gun politicians in Chicago. The other major problem once the anti-gun politicos are forced out is that there is such a huge patchwork of gun laws and home rule entities in Illinois.

    Board Chairman Andy Borrowman missed it. But he invited Dr. Mefford to the next board meeting to explain it so that the board can take an active role. A wise man knows that he knows not. Go Pike!
