I bet that number is tripled in March and April.

What do you guys think?

Maybe Illinois should send the State Police there who process our FOIDs to learn how to streamline things.

People are nervous. They know how dangerous it is just to go for groceries and want to do something about it.

The bad guys are getting more aggressive and reckless. They know that an unarmed target is an easy target. Permit holders have decided not to be an easy target.

I predicted that Chicago/Cook county will be sold out in order to get "shall issue".
Based on the restrictions on carry in Chicago/Cook County, I was right.

I wonder how many are non-resident.

at $100+ each that is a good chunk of money.

But Quinn who hands out money like it's candy won't go for it even at $100 a pop. It is a money maker in a couple ways. The fee for the license, the sales tax for gun sales. The reduced police force due to crime dropping. But no he will contintuie the Chicago agenda, how's that work out?

It would be a positive financial benefit to the state, but Quinn doesn't care. To him, taxpayer money is infinite candy to hand out willy-nilly to his supporters.


I do not believe CCW would result in a smaller police force, but it would also not result in a larger one either. People would have the ability to legally protect themselves, but this would not diminish the services provided by the police. It would simply give one additional option available for citizens, since the police canít be everywhere at once.
