05 -- I'm well aware of what the Court articulated in Heller. If you want to propose that bill and hold it out there and wait for it's passage go for it. The Cubs will win the World Series, Hell will freeze over, and pigs will fly.
get over wanting a perfect consitutional bill/law. We will have to make some consessions to get a law on the books. None of the other states started off perfect. We are trying to undie 60 plus years of culture in this state. So if this is the type of bill, which it is, that started Kentucky, Tennessse and others down the path I'll take it.
Your free not to apply if you don't like it.
What I am saying is that a 'discretionary' carry bill is discriminatory (i.e. CA, MA, NJ, MD, ect..). There is no reason to have a discretionary bill. You meet the qualifications or you don't. Other States, sans WI, did not have Heller/McDonald and WI is going for 'constitutional' carry. In the end it does not matter what I say or what the ILGA does, the courts will be taking up the matter. The cases have already been filed and are well on their way to the SCOTUS.
Illinois can pass a carry bill now and have some say, or they can roll the dice. I will freely admit that the longer they hold out, the less I am willing to compromise. How about you?
I SUPPORT 2193. I WILL SEE THIS BILL PASSED AND BECOME LAW. I WILL CARRY IN DEFENSE OF MYSELF AND THOSE THAT I LOVE, AND WILL CONTINUE THE FIGHT.
"But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing. It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as in the Federal Government." -- Andrew Jackson
Finally, to all who have carried us to this point, to all who will continue to fight, and to those who will pick up from where we leave off, thank you.
