Dec 11, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Northern Michigan News

In a major victory for gun rights advocates, a federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down a ban on carrying concealed weapons in Illinois - the only remaining state where carrying concealed weapons is entirely illegal - and gave lawmakers 180 days to write a law that legalizes it.

"There is no suggestion that some unique characteristic of criminal activity in Illinois justifies the state's taking a different approach from the other 49 states," Judge Richard Posner, who wrote the court's majority opinion. "If the Illinois approach were demonstrably superior, one would expect at least one or two other states to have emulated it."
LOL !! Exactly. Hilarious !!

But it's amazing so many voters accept the irrational and false views of communists like Rahmulus Emanuel, Pat Quinn, and the nazi-jew Mike Bloomberg.

You couldn't be more wrong, BITCH: gun control laws (antigun laws) don't reduce crime or make us more safe or safer, they do the opposite, they increase crime and they make all of us less safe.

And the safety of "law enforcement personnel" should never trump the right of the people to keep and bear arms. You're an antigun nazi who needs to rule from an antigun state like North Korea, or some other nazi dump.

Let's look at it compared to another state of similar size. Ohio in 2011 had 208 less murders, 77 less forcible rapes, 4197 less robbery, 15281 less aggravated assualts-All compared to Illinois 2011 stats. Guess which one allowed concealed carry in 2011.
Both set of numbers came from www.disastercenter.com , if you would like to check.
I picked these two states because the border my home state of pro-gun Indiana, so the people in Illinois can't say "yeah but all of our illegal guns come from Indiana. They both border me.
