Transit officials call for restrictions if concealed carry law is enacted
Agencies want guns banned on buses, trains

My Comments: It is going to be real fun to watch the Chicago City Govt loose their minds as 'Law Abiding and Legal Carry' gets enacted over the next year! Anyone want to bet that muggings go down (I'm not talking about Gang and/or Minority on Minority violence.., just ramdom muggings, as well as store robberies). This could really also ruin that, so popular stick it to the man flash mob crap too.).
....Those scenarios were raised Friday by Chicago transit officials, who called on state legislators to prohibit anyone from carrying a weapon on buses and trains if a concealed-carry law is adopted in Illinois.
....Transit agencies across the state contend that allowing individuals to carry firearms on buses and trains would be dangerous, even catastrophic, because "interpersonal conflicts are commonplace" among passengers, testified Jeanne Wrenn, a Pace official.
....The issue boiled up at a House Judiciary Committee hearing in Chicago the same day that a divided federal appeals court rejected Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan's request for a rehearing on the case in which the state has been ordered to allow citizens to carry guns in public.
My Comments: Read the rest and laugh at what they are worried about (which amounts to worry about what Criminals are already doing. Apparently the City Govt has allowed criminals to rule the roost for so long, that they forgot that non-criminal Law Abiding Citizens are the constant victums of what they are worried about, and, lord forbid, they could now protect themselves, lawfully!" What a twisted and backwards Progressive Hell Chicago is, along with New York City, Philly...........
