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.

We can cut the crime rate in the state by 95% if we could sell Chicago to Indiana.

Chuck have you applied for yours yet?
Not yet Steve, I've been waiting for them to get over the minor changes they were making to the forums and requirements. Just enough crap for you to have to redo and resubmit the electronic paperwork. Everything has to be done in a certain time frame or it's invalid. 16 hours of classroom training, 30 round live fire qualification, picture and digital fingerprints. Example if your picture or fingerprints are more then 30 days old they are invalid and must be redone.

Not a good process but at least it's a step in the right direction.

We aint buying it Chuck. You can keep Chicago and Obama.

On side note, I shut my computer off on Friday and just now turned it back on. Where did everybody come from? Looks like the child is growing up.

Congrats to you Chuck and Islander on your appointment to moderator.:D

Thank you Dan, I didn't see you yesterday or earlier today and was beginning to think that you went AWOL. Yes it looks like the days of you, pbsdaddy, MPO Southy, Gmountain, Mike240 and I being on at the same time and feeling like the forum was really taking off are over.
