Despite the big win for the 2nd Amendment, and Illinois residents in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, it seems that Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart and Chicago Police Superintendent Geri Mc Carthy want to decide the issue of concealed carry for you. They will decide if you really need a gun. (Maybe if you beg they will let you have one.)
Sheriff Tom Dart said Sunday that he is proposing a concealed-carry gun ordinance to keep Cook County from becoming the “Wild West.”
Dart said he’s worried about a stalemate in the General Assembly on a law to license people to carry concealed guns. If legislators don’t meet a June 9 court deadline to pass such a law, anyone with a state firearm owner’s identification card could legally walk anywhere in public with a concealed weapon, Dart said. …
Dart’s ordinance would give him the power to approve and reject licenses to carry concealed guns in Cook County. Applicants would have to pay a $300 fee for a license.
Gee, where’s my shocked face? A Cook County official has come up with a “solution” that not only involves his having absolute power, but also requires our paying more money to Cook County to exercise our God-given rights? Of course!
But will criminals see it the Sheriff’s way? How safe do you feel? Remember, 911= “Dial a Prayer.”
