Via Thirdpower, Governor Quinn of Illinois talks about the horrors of Concealed carry.
I mean, the HORROR of people being able to carry LOADED guns around. That’s a “Recipe for Disaster”! I mean 49 other states allow some form of carry, and about 42 of those states are straight-up Shall-issue, meaning that if you can pass a criminal background check, and possibly pass a safety course you get to carry a loaded gun.
Oh and the HORROR of people being able to carry where ALCOHOL is served! Of course there’s the false dichotomy of “Guns and Alcohol don’t Mix”…duhhh! And no state allows drunks to carry. But if you’re not drinking, or not impaired (depending on your state’s laws) Most states allow carry in an establishment where alcohol is sold and consumed!
The same crap comes when Massachusetts wants to lift the ban on fireworks, or allow grocery stores to sell beer. Somehow this “Great Social Experiment” line flies. What is with people who live in a state with odd restrictions A) Thinking ALL states are as byzantine as them, and B) Joining EVERY OTHER STATE in the Union will some how result in the state quickly degenerating to scene from Mad Max or The Road???
On a great note, while Illinois struggles to Join the 1990s with their carry laws, Arkansas is Joining the future of carry by making the carry permit a formality!
Good for them!
