Illinois Concealed Carry
UPDATE: the House and Senate have finally passed HB183 – no thanks to the Governor. Overriding Quinn’s veto on July 9th, Illinois officially became the last state in the union to allow concealed carry by its residents. While the bill is not the strictest in the nation, it is not the loosest, either. A true compromise that a super majority could agree on.
The implementation and subsequent changes are what we have to watch for now.
– Story of the Month –
Jack had lived in Illinois for many years before moving to Wisconsin to start a small masonry business there. It wasn’t too long ago that he got called into a larger Wisconsin city for a job that would take about a week. After finishing up one particularly long day, he drove from the job site towards the highway that would take him safely home – only the road to get to the highway was not so safe. His truck had been given problems before and it decided that night was the night to break down. Jack pulled off to the side of the road and listened to the engine sputter as he turned the key. After calling a tow truck, he realized he wasn’t the only one who heard his distressed truck. Around the street corner came three large men who did not look like they were there to help. The leader approached his truck, smacked his hands down on the hood and said with a menacing stare, “Looks like you’re having some engine problems…”
Jack simply reached under his coat and placed his hand on his .357 revolver he always carried with him. He responded, “I ain’t having no problems.” Seeing the movement, the thug quickly lifted his hands off the truck and said “hey! ok, ok!” Then walked away. The story could have ended much differently, but Jack responded appropriately – without threatening but clear that he was going to protect himself from threats.
