Ban Firearms Lose Our Business

Business Hostile to Rights of Gun Owners
Business Hostile to Rights of Gun Owners
We are within a month of having Illinois residents that have obtained permits legally carry concealed firearms in Illinois. The law provides that in addition to certain enumerated prohibited locations, businesses that post a sign of proper sign [see below] may prohibit individuals from bringing a concealed firearm into their business. There are some groups advocating the signs....which are a sure way to leave employees and customers unprotected. It is estimated that 10-15% of Illinois residents LEGALLY able to acquire the permits are going to do so. Businesses that choose to post the signs need to be aware that those of us with the permits intend to ACTIVELY BOYCOTT and not patronize any business that posts a sign prohibiting firearms. There are even phone apps available that will track non-firearm friendly businesses. People have the right to make a choice on this and many of us won't spend our money with a business that doesn't respect our constitutional rights.

John I like your logic...Evanston needs to have a Cannibal Appreciation Day...and while we are at it....lets cancel Columbus Day because he was wrong, deny women the vote and make it legal to own slaves again....I could live with all of the above sooner than accept restrictions on the right to defend myself :). Thank you for pointing out how wrong and absurd Karen's post was.

Quiz for liberals: 1. Who commits crimes, criminals or legally licensed concealed carry citizens? 2. What weapon is the preferred choice of the above: semi-auto pistols, machine guns, mortars, RPG launchers, fighter jets? 3. The estimated number of people saved by owning their own legal gun is: 2million, 200, 20, none, because all guns are scary bad. As you probably have NO idea of the answers, join the NRA and find out. Don't let the media lie to you.

Oldfed, in fact, a double murderer and bank robber in Evanston last year was a card carrying FOID gun man!!!!!!! Don't think you live here if you did not know that. NRA troll guy huh? Sadly, guns can equal unnecessary murders far too often.

As long as you realize that you the guy was a needle in a haystack.....in 2012 there were 502 murders in Chicago..and not a single one involved an individual with a FOID card.....so go figure. Further, in all candor, there are plenty of things that the Illinois State Police should be doing to properly run their FOID program which isn't being done See... http://www.auditor.illinois.gov/audit-reports/performance-special-multi/performance-audits/2012%20releases/12-isp-foid-act-mgmt-full.pdf If you would like some pleasure reading.
