That IL list is ridiculously long.

I couldn't believe that long Illinois list of places you can't carry. You'd almost think the legislature that created that list really didn't want you to carry in Illinois. All they accomplished was to make it easy on a mass shooter to find a gun free zone in which to murder people. Anyone intent on using their gun illegally in one of these prohibited places is sure not going to be deterred by a "no guns" rule.

I live in Soithern Illinois, and it seems to be a complete different state than Northern Illinois.
The majority of retail places that post weapons not allowed do it due to insurance reasons or parent company rules. And they are mostly ignored down here.
But it’s all about your area in ILLINOIS. There are things I do in my local area that I wouldn’t imagine doing in a bigger/liberal town like Carbondale.

Yep. The list of places prohibited to carry is really the list of places where it makes the most sense to carry. I'm like you 7 kids and always doing things at the schools. My workplace also is posted. Unfortunately, I have to leave the piece at home or locked in the car a good deal of the time. If "someone" has to go into the City, I guess the only option is to be a scofflaw. After all, it's not like criminals read and follow the "prohibited list". Just make sure you don't "print".

Exactly. They were forced into allowing it by the courts, so of course they made it as useless as possible.

It is legal to ride a bicycle, while armed, through the casino parking lot, as long as you are just passing through and do not stop. This also applies to parks and parts of bike trails. As long as you are passing through you are legal.
