Ray of Sunshine For The Windy City

Illinois, the only state in the union without a concealed carry law is poised to pass one which requires the state police to issue a concealed carry permit to any resident who pays a $150 fee and completes a 16 hour safety course.  The law allows no carve-out for municipalities which means Chicago residents will be able to protect themselves from the criminals who carry now.  Or at least shoot back.
