State of Illinois

NRA news reports that the State of Illinois mailed out nearly 5,000 concealed carry licenses recently and it has received 50,000 applications. Way to go Illinois residents!

They had to issue some of them, or end up back in court. They've been dragging their feet and playing a stalling game since the beginning of the year.

Trust me we do, I belong to two very active groups that actually charter buses and go to the states capitol when ever important legislation is up for a vote and we've challenged the state in court many times. It's how we finally got the restrictive laws in this state over turned.

The local media has been in a frenzy since the Illinois State Police made the announcement on Friday. They've been running those scrolling banners on the news shows warning people that the state was actually issuing permits.

They probably want people to think the state is going to turn into the OK Corral!

Oh hell they're used to people running around with guns shooting one another. What they've got their undies in a bunch over are the good guys having guns for a change.

It will be interesting to see if violent crime decreases.
