Illinois Concealed Carry Results Are In
As in every case, in every place…more guns, less crime! Another truth telling story about the American Constitution.

No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this would be to affirm that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves. John Jay, First chief justice US Supreme Court.
Every gun law in America is unconstitutional and therefore illegal. Yes I said every gun law is illegal!
The complete uncensored Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Did you read that? No don’t skip this…DID YOU READ THAT? The part that said SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. That means no one can make a law that even smells like it might restrict the right of any American to keep and or bear arms. Don’t like it? Tuff…then change the law, don’t violate it.
That being said…
Since March of 2014, the state of Illinois has issued approximately 91,000 concealed carry permits. Oh no! Say it isn’t so.
Anti-American, anti-Constitutionalists feared the new law would lead to increased crime, but now, with less than one year of experience behind them, state officials are surprised,(surprise, surprise) saying their fears were unfounded. OMG these people are clueless, it’s a wonder they don’t step on their own tongues.
“I really wasn’t sure on expectations, but I do think that it’s probably worked out better than some people thought it would,” McLean County Sheriff Joe Sandage told the Bloomington Pantagraph.
“We haven’t seen any abuses of (the law) or people carrying into places where they’re not allowed to,” Sandage continued, adding that “by and large, the people getting concealed-carry permits are responsible gun owners, and they’re going to follow the law as it’s written. …Legalization has not caused the mass chaos we thought it would”, according to Decatur Police Chief Brad Sweeney. “It’s been such a non-event,” Sweeney told the Pantagraph, adding that the possibility that Illinois would devolve into the “wild, wild west” did enter his mind. “We were worried these firearms may start to turn up in cases, but I could not find any report of an incident all of last year.”
Sandage’s and Sweeney’s assessments match those of other top cops in the state.
“For us, it’s been a non-event,” Champaign police deputy chief Joe Gallo told The (Champaign-Urbana) News-Gazette earlier this month.
“I think people were so concerned about it in the beginning, because there was a lot of media hype and speculation,” Urbana Police Chief Patrick Connolly told The News-Gazette. “But quite honestly, we have often said the people who are law-abiding and take the time to go to class and register and understand the concept, hopefully, are going to be smart enough to handle the firearm appropriately. So, I don’t think this was something out of the ordinary.”
Illinois’ concealed carry law requires permit holders to undergo a background check and 16 hours of training.
“When you’re talking concealed-carry, it’s mostly your law-abiding citizens, who don’t cause problems anyway,” Danville police Sgt. Josh Campbell told the paper.
The observations of law enforcement officials on the ground are in contrast to the predictions made by politicians such as Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and former Governor Pat Quin.
Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy also opposed concealed carry. Last January, after the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that the state’s ban on concealed carry was unconstitutional, he said: “When people say concealed carry, I say Trayvon Martin. The answer to guns is not more guns, and just simply putting guns in people’s hands is going to lead to more tragedy.”
THE BOTTOM LINE: Well he was also wrong, wrong, and wrong. According to the Chicago Tribune, Illinois homicides actually fell from 419 in 2013 to 407 last year. And that was in less than one year when the Homicide rate was on the up tic. Now, you just wait until the FBI report that no one pays any attention to, comes out showing another significant drop in the overall violent crime rate in the state. The more the crime rate drops the less attention will be paid to it, because we sure do not want to solve the violent crime problem, what we do want is to get rid of guns.
FYI, the State of Vermont doesn’t have even one gun law. Anyone federally legal to possess a gun, can carry it loaded concealed or open carry right down main street Vermont. But here is the part, as I said, no one pays any attention to, and that is, according to the FBI stat’s, Vermont has among the lowest per capita violent crime rates in the Nation. Arizona and Alaska have had similar results. Moreover, after Hiller v’s Washington DC Supreme Court decision to abolish their gun ban, Washington DC, almost overnight, lost its status of being the murder capital of the world. The city of Chicago is soon to capture that prestigious award with their virtual gun ban. You want more gun murders…then ban guns! S
Folks! Anytime a legislature violates Constitutional law we are in trouble. Unlike today’s so-called leaders who haven’t a clue as to what they are doing, the Constitutional architects knew exactly what they were doing. The right to keep and bear arms is for the “Security of a Free State”, when are these ignorant dummies going to get it?
Jesus Christ Himself said “sell your cloths, buy a sword.” Why?
For your safety my friend, for your safety!
My country’s Constitution says I should be armed, My God said I should be armed…I don’t about you, but I’m going to be armed…
