There are only 3 states without concealed carry: Hawaii, Illinois and Wisconsin....that's right you can carry a concealed weapon in BOTH New York AND California....but not in the Land of Lincoln!? Shameful!

Parents definitely need weapons to defend their children against DCF$ terrorists. Any real parent would die before they allowed their children to be abducted by the government child traffickers.

If you want to carry a gun why would you want to conceal it? Why not just carry your loaded assault weapon out in the open so you can enjoy the full effect of intimidating others around you? Make ya feel like you have this really big set of balls when in reality, without your gun, you're nothing. You know, like the other teabaggers do.

thisaintalabamy, you DO realize that not all of the states that DO allow concealed carry are "teabagger" states, don't you? MANY of them, in fact, are democrat, ANTI-teabagger majority. Nice attempt at political slur, though.

It's the bizarre left-wing nuts like you that are the reason we need to keep them concealed.

That way when you begin to get radical about 'abortion rights' and 'green technology' and become irrational and in many cases dangerous, you will ratchet it up around those bearing concealed weapons, showing your true colors...but around those being carried openly (like the police), you might not want to show what you're really all about. Because you're a pussy like that.

So it's not only a safety thing...it's a truth thing. We need to know who's for this country and how it was founded, versus who's against it.

Congratulations, thisaintalabamy, you've done a fine job outing yourself regarding a side.

I must say I now call the state of Illinois The peoples Republic..lol On a series note, my husband and I who have children just made a major move to the great state of Florida. Why Florida? Because we are from Southern Illinois and the state is a freaking joke! My husband has worked on the river his whole life and in southern Illinois he had a good job...??????? hello he was a top of the line welder making 18 dollars a hour and I worked a 10 dollar a hour job. I have been a cna for awhile, but with the kids and the state of Illinois we made too much to get any kind of help ( I am talking about me going back to school) but not enough to keep our head abovewater. We did not even have a house note because we bought out home cash money back in 1999 for 20,000 dollars cash from saving everypenny we could. Well when gas went up and the ice storm hit in way southern illinois a couple years ago our roof was ruined and water pipes busted and ruined our new floors we had just put in....anyway to make a long story short. we held our heads high and just moved to florida where my hubby is welding on ships making alot more money and we just bought a new house (not new but a forclosed home and new to me)getting to the point...okay when the ice storm hit in rural southern illinois why didnt we get the fema help or red cross? I will tell you why.....because at the time gov blow a bith was cought selling obamas seat! Illinois is the worst state ever! oh and I am now thinking about renting my illinois home out to deer hunters.....and now to talk about guns!!!!!!!!!!I have some and I love them....here in Florida you dont even need a damn foid card (which I have) florida dont make you have one...that just makes more money for the state...hey everyone if you want to own a gun you have to pay 15 dollars.....screw that shit...shit if you are a florida resident you have to have a liscence to fish but they are free..........
Just Love !
