Some counties in Il are trying!!
My old county, and it's neighbor had concealed carry on the ballots this past week. Though they can't single handedly get cc for the Obama laden state of IL, some citizens are trying. Ogle county passed, Winnebago did not. Here is a link to the Rockford Register Star.
I thought the different views were interesting. Seems the sheep there in IL are sheep of the purist and dumbest kind.
I wrote a letter to the editor, and they called last night to verify my info so they can print it this week. Hopefully, I can post it here.
County should heed voters? voice: No concealed carry - Rockford, IL - Rockford Register Star

Good to hear that they are trying. I guess not all there have been brain washed into a false sense of security.

It's good they have decided to try, but I'd say they are probably wasting their time. CC will have to be a state wide thing, and it will never pass in the Chicago area as long as Daley and his buddy's are alive. Once a freedom is surrendered, it is very seldom recovered.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

Good luck, Daisy, in getting your letter printed. Let us know when it does hit the print.

Maybe.....however they do have a pending lawsuit in Chicago(not CC though), along with pending incorporation cases there and CA, makes it ripe for some kind of a carry lawsuit, since carry is banned in many parts of the state, open or concealed. It can be done though, although I agree Chicago is the only reason they don't have it now.

Good luck with it all. I hope you all turn the tide before it's too late. Keep up the good work!
