Illinois is the only state without some sort of carry,whether its open or concealed.If the criminals can have guns why cant we protect ourselves from them.It will be a great deterrent.It will also provide much revenue for a state in dire need of funds.We cannot continue to let chicago control the whole state.Most cops retired or active i have talked to want ccw.This must change today the government has held this at bay long enough,now is the time and today is the day. Please sign my petition and show Illinois Governement we have had enough.
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government"
