November 1, 2011 has come and gone, with tens of thousands of WI residents downloading applications for CCW permits before the day was finished.
That leaves Illinois as the ONLY state with no provision for carry at all. None, zip, zero, zilch, nada, the big goose egg.
Since we aren't allowed to carry guns; we must be safer right? Nope, just pick up a recent newspaper from Chicago and see how many shootings and/or violent crimes there were in October....clearly carry bans don't work. Sometimes I feel like we're beating a dead horse by repeating all of this, but it must be done.
Today I'll leave readers with a simple quote I heard yesterday, that sums things up very nicely (sadly, I can't remember where I heard it...it's not mine though):
Gun control is like trying to reduce DUIs by taking cars away from sober drivers.
