    Exclamation Blockbuster announcement from McLean County, IL state's atty today (Monday)

    Blockbuster announcement: McLean Co. State’s Attorney says “No charges for FOID holders merely exercising 2nd Amendment rights” | GUNS SAVE LIFE

    In short, McLean County State's Attorney has called Illinois' prohibition on right-to-carry unconstitutional and he's not going to prosecute FOID-card holding gunowners for merely exercising their rights under Heller and McDonald.

    Governor and AG are defecating bricks. IL State Police apoplectic. I expect the usual characters to proclaim the sky will soon fall in their shrill voices.

    This has the potential to be huge. It's almost like a rebellion of sorts among IL State's Attorneys regarding IL lack of right to carry if they get more on board.

    Are you saying ppl in Chicago can carry with a FOID card? That would be huge. The gun death rate would probably spike as all those gang members got shot while trying to rob or shoot someone else, and then it should stabilize for the first time in decades. Proof that guns in the hands of law abiding citizens is not the problem, but the solution.

    Chicago is in Crook errr, Cook County. I seriously doubt that, since they routinely ignore Federal Law and Court Rulings, Reidents will ever be able to carry without being harrassed incessantly by CPD.

    The Foid card does not allow a person to carry a loaded weapon off private property. It allows a person to posses a firearm or ammunition. I have not seen anything in the local paper about it yet.

    Many downstate counties are in favor of a carry permit/license the problem they have is Chicago has enough power to defeat it.

    Too bad they can't simply secede and join us as Hoosiers.

    Let Chicago be it's own City State? A great thought, but Could that work?

    I have a few questions on that subject:

    Would they still get 2 Senators and Representatives based on population?
    The city controls Il politics as it is, what good would giving the socialists even more voice in the Federal legislature be?

    Where would the legal boundaries be drawn? Chicago, itself is geographically small, but add in all the sububurbs and you've got a lot of people and land holding.

    Since the city is broke, would they get a bail out from the .gov to maintain their corrupt ways and keep the sheep fed? I doubt they would be made to fend for themselves, unfortunately.
