If CC passes in Illinois it's going to cost me a lot of money
First of all I'm going to have to purchase that Rohrbaugh R9 - that's going to run me around $1,200
Then I'm going to need a holster, that's another hundred bucks or so
I'm also going to have to purchase different brands of ammo, the Rohrbaughs can be picky about what ammo they like
Then there is the range time, practicing with the R9 and finding which ammo it likes best
it's all kind of overwhelming when I think of what I'll have to go through
I also have a couple of items I'd be purchasing as well. (I've got my eye on a gun at Cabellas.) Plus of course the fee for the training and the fee for the license. Think about the economic renewal this could bring Illinois. If the passed CCW, there would be more money (from fees + from taxes) coming into the government coffers. They should pass it on that alone; with the current fiscal state of Illinois, they need all the help they can get.
