Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty teeth.

First Inaugural Address of George Washington...April 30, 1789

The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Abraham Lincoln said:

"In this age, and in this country, public sentiment is everything. With it, nothing can fail; against it nothing can suceed. Whoever molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes, or pronounces judicial decisions."

James Madison Declared

The adversaries of the Constitution seem to have lost sight of the PEOPLE altogether in their reasonings on this subject; and to have viewed these different establishments not only as mutual rivals and enemies, but as uncontrolled by any common superior in their efforts to usurp the authorities of each other. These gentlemen must be reminded of their error. They must be told that the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY, wherever the derivative may be found, RESIDES IN THE PEOPLE ALONE.

Concealed Carry....Illinois...Don't Need It...JOKE

We live in the land of Eden, a paradise of peace and tranquility.

Here are some statistics from the FBI.

Violet Crime:
                      Nonnegligent Homicide
                      Forcible Rape
                      Aggravated Assault

Property Crime:
                          Larceny - theft
                          Motor vehicle theft

Crime Rates          NY,NY          CHICAGO, IL          U.S.A.

Violent Crimes          6                          9                          4

Property Crimes       3                          6                          4

As the numbers increase so does the rate of crime. So tonight when you go out to have a little fun and when you come back to hit the sack you can feel a lot better knowing you live in a really safe state that the politicians believe does not need a concealed carry provision so law abiding citizens can protect themselves and their families. Now don't you feel better knowing the facts from the FBI?....and the fact that many of our legislators just don't give a damn about your personal safety and your 2nd Amendment Rights.

Of course, we need concealed carry in Illinois. Why should I not have the right to defend myself, legally, against armed hoodlums?

The criminals know that the public cannot defend itself outside of home or business. And an employee can't even defend himself at work, legally.
