I was so excited to read this in the local newspaper this morning! Chicago has long held the rest of us back from concealed/carry! Their argument (get ready to laugh)--urban areas and concealed weapons do not mix. Uh....right. Thugs kill unarmed victims...end of story. That is the way politicians want it. If not, why don't they make a valid case? My rural area has long fought for concealed/carry. We have few murders...and we would like fewer. Data supports the fact that an armed citizenry has fewer homicides. Why can the people up north not get that????
