In Gibson v. Commonwealth, 237 Ky. 33, 34 S.W.2d 936 (1936), the High Court stated: “[I]t is the tradition that a Kentuckian never runs. He does not have to.”
Course you can not carry on the CTA which trust me you really need some of the red stops near the school downtown lot of robberies .. But good fist step

Thats great but if you read the local government must approve the carry permits and no permits have been issued yet. Still Chicago politics. It does look like someday law abiding citizens of Chicago will be able to protect themselves
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.
He is correct. A 'certain political party,' in the South after the Civil war passed laws to keep guns out of black hands.
Right now the Antis from Chi Town, are putting both hands over their ears and yelling " LALALALALALALALA I CAN"T HEAR YOU"

I would like to see a study in a couple of years to see how this affects violent crime rates. I bet I can predict the results.

That Vernon guy is really working for gun owners in Illinois. He's up against lots of nimrods too.
I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.
America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

You know that look women give you when they want some sugar? Me neither
I live in Chicago.
I'll only be carrying like 1% of the time 'cause I take public trans everywhere.
Sadly, with all the restrictions about this or that venue, event or mode of transportation, it's going to be a fool's hope for altogether too many Illinois citizens.Originally Posted by From the article
Paraphrasing from Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs And Ham story ...
Chicago's Lament:I may not carry on a boat.
I mayn't do so with a goat.
I am disallowed carrying in the rain.
I may not carry them on a train.
Not in a taxi, or two or three!
Not in a car! You let me be!
I am criminalized if carrying them in a box.
I am branded 'felon' if with a fox.
I mayn't carry in a house.
I simply shouldn't with a mouse.
I wish I could carry here or there ...
like the 2A demands, carry them ANYWHERE!
