"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.

After saying that "protecting the safety of its citizens is unquestionably a significant state interest," Williams wrote, "when firearms are carried outside the home, the safety of a broader range of citizens is at issue. The risk of being injured or killed now extends to strangers, law enforcement personnel, and other private citizens who happen to be in the area."
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.
