Illinois is at it again, this time they are trying to change the liquor control act to prohibit firearms in any business that has a liquor license, even trying to set up a $5000 fine for any business with a liquor license that 'knowingly fails to prohibit concealed firearms on its premises' and even making the parking lot of a business that has a liquor license off limits to concealed carry permit holders.

Not at all.
The pants-wetters will do anything to try an end run-around of the new CCW laws since they didn't get their way when it passed.
I like all kinds of foreign guns.
"Arm yourself because no one else here will save you..."
Is there any way to actually put a dome over the city - whatever they have, it could be contagious.
Wow - Idiots they are........ Just asking for Crime to Continue! When will the STUPID VOTERS in that state become awake? This is your Public Sector CS and UNIONS at work ($$Money to buy Regressivly Progressive Politicians).... Just saying
........and parking area under the control of an establishment that maintains a retail liquor license as provided in the Liquor Control Act of 1934 and allows for the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages on its premises as an on premise consumption retailer (rather than serves alcohol on its premises, if more than 50% of the establishment's gross receipts within the prior 3 months is from the sale of alcohol).
When we originally got our carry permits the law in our state was similar: It made me totally uncomfortable when I went grocery shopping because the store sold beer. Even though the stores weren't posted, the state law was that you couldn't carry on the premises -which included the parking lot - of anyplace that sold alcohol.
A few years ago they fixed that mess and now you can carry in any restaurant and/or bar or store that sells packaged alcohol IF the owner does not have it posted. You can't drink any alcohol in any of those places while you are carrying, but that is as it should be.
Much more sensible now.
Of course, Bubba and Bubba still get drunk and shoot or knife (whichever is handy) each other. That's part of the culture. It's just not legal.
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
They're going to fine them for specifically infringing upon the 2A. Big brass ones, to do that. But I wouldn't expect any less of the anti-gunners who are being dragged kicking and screaming into the modern citizen-run world we live in. Time to get with the program, folks. Y'all don't want another lawsuit to cram your infringements down your throats, forcibly.
Well, it's not like politics of this sort is a new thing to the Chicago area!
Every day without a negligent discharge is a good day.
Obviously this is your typical Illinois foreplay. Just wait for the actual climax where this bill would be voted on during some emergency late afternoon session. You'd then expect words like "serve" to disappear and end up with any place that has a liquor license. Oh wait...now you can't carry your firearm into a grocery or a convenience store.
Illinois democrats need to stop pu$$yfooting and just come out and say: "no carrying on anything you don't own".
In all seriousness, how many CCL holders do you think will obey the law if there are that many restrictions? The courts seem to know this but not the politicians.
IIRC, the implemented CHL statutes already criminalize carrying on public transportation (busing, the metro trains). If they force everyone to put up criminal empowerment zone signs, then they can effectively criminalize anyone that dares go about carrying. Gee, perhaps that's the idea.
^Yep. And I get what they're doing. Some people don't have the luxury of seeing the numbers and realizing that your city and state are going bankrupt. Dominick's and other businesses are slowly leaving Chicago with others advertising "no Cook county tax here". Just wait until our celebrity gets back home.
