    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.

    (16) Any building, real property, or parking area under the control of a gaming facility licensed under the Riverboat Gambling Act or the Illinois Horse Racing Act of 1975, including an inter-track wagering location licensee.

    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.
    Peace

    Since you mentioned Carbondale and I live in Southern Illinois and not that far from Carbondale I will reply with my experience. There aren't that many places in Carbondale that post that aren't on the states CPZ list (Criminal Protection Zone) In fact there are a couple that used to be posted that aren't any longer. Some like my doctor's office are in buildings owned by the hospital and are required to. I do find Guns and Ammo magazine in his waiting room. Sometime I'll have to ask what he thinks about the CPZ sign. There is a restaurant I know of that is part of a national chain that doesn't post , though many other locations in the chain do. There is a bank that has a "sign saying that legally carried handguns are welcome" a church in a neighboring town has a similar sign even though they are in an "anti-gun denomination". Even though Carbondale is a university town it isn't like Chicago. I had an car accident several years ago in Carbondale. I called the police and after the officer took my drivers license and insurance card he came back and asked for my CCL. Didn't ask if I was carrying, which I was. Just looked at my card and asked what the phone number on the back of the card was? An attorney I replied. No further comments from him.

    Pretty much everywhere except my work and the library. I don't go into government buildings much.

    If you go to church do you carry there? I do thankfully its not a mandated CPZ. I wish the state mandated CPZ zones were less. There was an upstate legislator that wanted to introduce a bill making churches a CPZ but he received a lot of negative feedback and removed it.

When I travel to Chicago, fly or drive, I always carry, but I have to be very careful of where. Since public transportation is prohibited, I have to rent a car and fight traffic. This is the most difficult restriction. I avoid almost all restaurants and shops in and around downtown ChiRaq. It seems like the Chicago PD handed out the no-gun signs like candy because they are plastered every door and window. Funny how the gun crime has been going up, not down. The farther you go outside of Chicago, the better things get. My family lives in the northern suburbs. I avoid Deerfield and Northbrook because they have laws that are not voided due to pre-emption that makes things tough.

    I use an App called Posted! that help identify businesses and places that have no-gun signs.
    Guess why I do not go anywhere near IL. And live in Florida!

    Il Stupidos are more interested in gun control than crime control.

    We certainly should not have to.
