Editorial: Reject concealed gun bill
Editorials May 23, 2013

Does this sound like a good idea in a city struggling with gun violence: Wipe every anti-gun-violence law off the books, and make it impossible to write new ones?

We don’t think so, which is why we shudder at the thought of the concealed-carry bill scheduled for a vote Friday in the Illinois House. The bill not only would allow concealed firearms to be carried throughout the state, but it also would overturn the assault-weapons ban in Chicago and Cook County, as well as other laws aimed at keeping guns out of criminals’ hands. In all, 109 home-rule governments would see their gun laws nullified. Gov. Pat Quinn came out strongly against the bill late Thursday.

I recently visited a deep south state. I ask why the people are so friendly and courteous? I thought old fashion Southern Hospitality. They said no, they just don't know if you are conceal carry!

"The principle of home rule is an important one. As written, this legislation is a massive overreach that would repeal critical gun-safety ordinances in Chicago, Cook County and across Illinois," he continued. "We need strong gun safety laws that protect the people of our state. Instead, this measure puts public safety at risk."

Home Rule Governance has proven wrong for Illinois. It has created dysfunctional government throughout Illinois.

Dear Friends

Chicago would dry up and blow away if the officals thought for a minute they could'nt have thier way and not be able to make thier own laws, Awwwwww poor mistreated city, You guys have had your way so long it's pathetic, you think you own the state or something, Well you don't and this is'nt all about you, It's about the whole state of Illinois, It makes me sick when I think of all the crap that I and my friends have had to put up with from that town If the officials don't like the way it is why don't they just tell Illinois goodbye and declare themselves a state and we would'nt have to put up with any more crap from them. If they decide to, DON'T LET THE DOOR HIT YA IN THE BUTT.......... SICK OF CHICAGO !!!

Fix the concealed carry bill

Imagine the push-back from citizens if you strip local governments of their ability to pass local firearms laws. That's the most noxious provision of legislation the House approved Friday. The bill includes other reasonable safeguards and restrictions.

We wouldn't be surprised to learn that the provision pre-empting local firearms laws is a loss leader, added to the bill so it can be negotiated away in talks with the Senate. That chamber, less open to concealed carry, wants to let municipalities and other local governments set rules for their unique circumstances.

So cut a compromise. The Senate can make changes in the House bill — most important, strip out that pre-emption provision — and send it back to the House. You're not that far from meeting the mandate of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Do all of this by Friday night and you can head home as heroes.

Or spend the next election cycle explaining why you didn't fix Illinois.

Don't Tread On Me. The 2nd Amendment is'nt about hunting. Iy's about protecting ourselves against a tyrannical government.

We have a government that is trying to take away that right. Failing that they are buying up all the ammo.

We have a government that is not protecting our interests abroad ...Behngazi.

We have a government that is scandal laden ...IRS ...Obamacare ...

We have government Czars.

We have a pro-Muslim Brotherhood government with access to the White House.

This is the time we should ALL arm ourselves!

God Bless America and the forefathers that fought and died for the freedoms that our government is trying to take away!

Attorney General Lisa Madigan is asking the Federal Court for thirty day extension of time.

hey lisa moronigan... you brainless mopes in springfield had 6 months to do something. If Lincoln could see who is running his state, he'd shoot himself.

She just wants time to give Quinn an opportunity to shoot himself in the foot.

Why does Quinn need more time to review it if it passed with a veto-proof majority anyway? And why should the courts give Illinois 30 more days, just because they were too slow and irresponsible with the first 180?
