CHICAGO (AP) - In a big victory for gun rights advocates, a federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down a ban on carrying concealed weapons in Illinois - the only state where it had remained entirely illegal.
The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said state lawmakers have 180 days to write a new law that legalizes concealed carry.
Indeed, i have been spreading the word for 12 years. The problem is most people do not understand the power they have over the government and how to use thier power. The government is very afraid of people finding out about thier power. I have gone stealth on occasion and set people free that should have never been prosecuted in the first place.
The last time I got called in for jury duty, I simply asked "will I and the other jurors be instructed on jury nullification procedures?" and was excused promptly. Which is important for a guy who works for himself and in another part of the state.
Ive not received a jury notice since that time..some 12 yrs ago.
My wife has free time and has been a juror 5-6 times in the last 10 yrs.
And THANK YOU!! for your service to the People.
The methodology of the left has always been:
Repeat the lie as many times as possible
Have as many people repeat the lie as often as possible
Let me first say that if concealed carry becomes a real possibility, I will apply. I love guns, though handguns do not interest me too much.
That said, I go to any any areas of Chicago and I have more or less no fear. I am not a pretty female and, though I do carry wads of cash sometimes, I do not look like I have something valuable that can be taken away from me.
I think that most Chicago criminals are economics driven (crime to make money), or sex driven, and do not care to assault not so well dressed 41 year old men driving used pick-up trucks.
I used to live in Oak Park and, though many street people asked me for money, I never gave a penny to anyone. I used to give them a handshake, that sort of threw them off their track.
Bottom line, I do not have a lot of fear going to Chicago.
But if I can get a CC license, I may carry sometimes.
Then you can't miss. And just bringing it out would diffuse damn near everything.
I was never that afraid in Chicago, but I did feel better packing. Its just like I'm not that afraid pulling the anchor out in the ocean. But I still put on the life preserver when walking around the cabin up to the bow. Both are for that 1 in 10,000 event.
