Wow thanks alot guys for the quick response. I'm glad I heard directly from people of IL. Its just another classic example of outlawing firearms thinking it will make them not fall into the wrong hands. But since when do criminals buy their firearms legally and obey laws like no concealed carry? Ill never understand how the liberals can honestly believe that, I'm pretty sure a 1st grader could comprehend that outlawing firearms only keeps them out of the hands of people that actually follow the laws....
It should be apparent enough that the city's with the highest murder rates such as NYC, Chicago and Washington DC have made handguns illegal to carry. It really cuts down the violence doesn't it? *sarcasm* it'll make it worse because criminals know that the chances of their victim being unarmed is close to 100% so there is nothing to deter them from trying.
