What a joke. 49 states have concealed carry laws. We are not re-inventing the wheel. He talked about the mentally ill having guns saying that, nationwide, "500 homicides were committed by people with concealed carry permits!!" "In what length of time, Senator?" the DJ asked. "Since 2005." Give me a freakin' break!!!!! We have that many homicides in the city of Chicago every YEAR -- by people who have no right to carry a gun -- who don't even have permits. Such a loaded argument. Made me sick.
Yeah, and Emanuel came out yesterday Criticizing the Judges who Ruled on this. Also Immediately Quinn said they will still have to have limitations for the mentally Handicapped, Criminals, and those caught up in Domestic violence Cases. Also he said he now will push his Assault Weapons Bans.
