It would be nice if this is a step to lowering the rates overall, because it's onerous as it is right now. Especially with the financial burden of training for those of lesser means. 


"You know, there are some words I've known since I was a schoolboy: 'With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured...the first thought forbidden...the first freedom denied--chains us all irrevocably.' Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie, as wisdom...and warning. The first time any man's freedom is trodden on, we're all damaged..." - Capt. Jean-Luc Picard

 

“But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.”

HB4177 isn't one of ours but when we publish the list of Spring Session bills, it will be in the support column.

On 5/25/2017, Superintendent Eddie Johnson predicted a 50% reduction is Chicago violence within 3 years of SB1722 becoming law.  The bill was signed into law on 6/23/2017. The clock is now ticking.

Ironic isn't it? I'd guess that the predominance of upper-middle class and above in the licensee population is astounding. It's a fairly expensive proposition overall for people to carry anywhere...but particularly in Illinois. A good quality gun and holster, ammo for practice, and self defense ammo has got to be about $700 at minimum....then you have to pay the licencing fees and class costs on top of that. So the total is around $1300 just to get started. I'm guessing not many people making less than $30k are going to be able to justify that expense. Those are precisely the types of people who are the most likely to be violent crime victims. The guy making $300k living in a gated community can easily afford it and is not likely to be a victim of crime, generally.

I'm pretty confident the people Chigagoans trust the most to protect their interests knew their fee structure would deprive many of those trusting souls their rights - for their own good, of course.

Thank you. Sent email to my Representative asking for support.
