The new concealed carry bill introduced in Illinois is not satisfactory at all. The appointed board would be made up of three Chicago anti-gun lobbyists or anti-gun politicians and three from outside of Cook County. The Illinois legislators are a disgrace to law-abiding gun-toting citizens.
As an American with constitutional rights to bear arms I always carry my gun. I will be damned if I must ask for permission to carry it.
If the local law enforcement objects to you having conceal carry you then must appeal it to the anti-gun zealots hand-picked by an anti-gun governor. This has lawsuit and ACLU written all over it and you rest assured I will be on that bandwagon.
In the words of the immortal Charlton Heston: I have only five words for you: From my cold, dead hands.
