OgreMagi: DaCaptain19: Which means nothing in IL, the ONLY state with no way to conceal-carry,

While California has conceal carry on the books, in reality the only way you'll get your permit is if you personally know someone important who can "make arrangements". No one gets a permit except judges and anti-gun politicians (I'm looking at you Boxer, you farking c00nt).


I'm not saying break the laws of your State or anything, but if you're carrying a weapon, the worst that could happen is that you get lumped in with the gang-bangers.

/ Also, don't be white.

Huck Chaser: Secret Master of All Flatulence: Huck Chaser:
The people being killed in Chicago are, with very VERY few exceptions, gang members themselves, and therefore are probably armed already anyway.

Unfortunately, we don't keep gangmembers in very small geographic areas where only other gangmembers live. They operate in areas that have innocent civilians living there too. They should be able to defend themselves from the criminal scum.

You're absolutely right, of course. However, the scenario I always imagine is...

Two gang members are surrounded by a small crowd of civilians. The gang members pull guns and start firing at each other. You then have two options:

1) The civilians run for cover.
2) Some percentage of the civilians pull their own (legal) weapons.

The only way option 2 is better than 1 is if BOTH a) the civilian shooters are somehow magically able to instantly tell who the gang members are and who their fellow civilians are, and b) shoot the gang members with 100% accuracy.


Every time people advocate for the right of honest citizens to carry guns, some moron spouts off the worse case scenario they can think of to justify their fears.

If we ban guns, they'll all just magically go away, and no one will ever be able to get one ever again.

THIS.

Gun grabbers have been trotting out this same old tired chestnut since Florida passed the first Shall-Issue law in 1987. 25 years later it still hasn't happened.
