Concealed Carry in Illinois

This is great:
  • The McLean County State’s Attorney went on record last week of announcing he would not prosecute people charge with weapons violations that directly are in conflict with the Second Amendment.

    Edwards County State’s Attorney Michael Valentine said he agrees with the stance taken by Ronald Dozier.

    “I have to commend Ron for his public stance,” said Valentine. “He said at the State’s Attorney’s conference earlier this year he was planning to make public the fact the State is in conflict with the Second Amendment.”

    Given the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the amendment allows people the right to carry arms, either openly or concealed, Dozier said the State of Illinois, by being the only state to deny concealed carry, is out of step with the rest of the country. He added his office will not prosecute those people charged with possession just because they do not have a FOID card.

    He also is circulating a petition expressing the General Assembly reverse its stance and adopt concealed carry.

    “I think it does go against the (U.S.) Constitution,” said Valentine of the state’s stance. “I agree and commend Ron for his stance.”

    It is a stance, the non prosecution of non-violent firearm violations such as FOID violations, unlawful use of weapons that conflict with federal policy, that Valentine’s office, as well as many in the region, carry out, just not as vocally as Dozier.

    “It’s a policy I know several counties in Illinois, including Edwards, now follow,” he said.

So instead of Rahm, Madigan and the rest of the anti-gun people running the state from Chicago, correct thinking State's Attorneys will disregard portions of the law that are so completely out of step with not only the country, but vast swaths of Illinois itself that aren't near Chicago and Cook County.

What's that you say? No bloodbaths in McLean and Edwards County? Nor the rest of southern Illinois? Golly, it's almost like responsible people know better than the politicians what's good for themselves, their families and their communities.

Good move by both of these downstate counties. Obvious they are Republican areas because Liberal Democrats don't believe good honest citizens deserve the right to defend themselves from the Mutants prowling our streets. It is a good start.

If the anti gun political scoundrels from shitcago are so against firearms let them give up their "armed police" details. Most all criminals are against concealed carry for law abiding citizens. It's time to strap on some iron & say Fuck you to our politicians who fail to obey the law.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

The other 49 states are wrong. Banning concealed carry by qualified law-abiding citizens is the panacea for minimizing urban violence.

Confiscate all firearms and ammunition from all citizens. Our precious "Chicago values" are at stake. It's "for the children".

They flipped and used the Democrats stance "I will not fight the gay marriage ban" and applied it to concealed carry. Its brilliant. Dummycrats in Crook County used this very same argument to garner votes with their liberal voting populace in Crook County by going against the majority of the country's opinion to support traditional marriage values. The downstate used the same argument and applied it to gun control. I am seriously considering moving to Bloomington/Normal, their elected reps are actually doing their jobs and worrying about real issues like public safety rather than an arena the State should stay out of.

I don't believe the Supreme Court held there's any right to concealed carry, or to carry arms outside one's home. The holding in McDonald was only that you can't be prevented from owning a gun at home. It went no further than that.

Frankly, I would rather have more police than easier weapons carry. Both would be great, but here's why I prefer more police:

(1) I hate burdening my waist with so much as a cell phone, let alone a gun and ammo
(2) I don't have time to train
(3) I can't read people and situations like a police officer can
(4) Police do more than just prevent person-on-person crime
(5) I want my teenagers to be safe when they go out without me, and giving them a concealed pistol doesn't seem like a good way to do that

I live in a (relatively) safe part of the city, and in 15 years we've had no trouble. What I really want is for more of this city to enjoy it the way we have been able to, thanks in no small part to CPD's efforts in my neighborhood.W.

They will not ship inside of Cook County but they sure will to Will Kendal. WHY?

By the way I ordered the part and had it shipped to my kid downstate at school dorm address. Now this make sense I can order weapon parts to a University address...

No I am not ordering ammo or weapons just a handgun replacement part. Only here in Crook County do they limit sales on line.

Thank Goodness some States Attorney has the insight and balls to stand behind the choice to own a weapon....

Thanks buddy.... wish there was more we could do with the little we have left, but it's reached the end.

Good luck to you my taxpaying friend and to those like you. Until pandering political hacks stop ignoring the fact that core services such as police, fire, streets and sanitation, water service and education are the FIRST items to be budgeted and PAID FOR REGARDLESS OF ANYTYHING ELSE IN THIS COUNTRY, you will see that only the rich will have these services in the future.

Middle class, paying for their own public services mandated by the government? Not for much longer I'm afraid, the only services YOU'LL get are whatever the politicians and their big money handlers will LET you have if there's any left over from protecting THEIR asses. No, rather by pandering to the greed and desire to see others in worse circumstances, the american public will continue being duped into fucking over the only people left to protect, serve and educate them. And they will never wake the fuck up because the american public loves fucking over everyone else, and the government hands them their free excuse by propagandizing FOR them telling the world they shouldn't have to pay for these services anymore.

Concealed carry aside, it's amazing to me that something as unconstitutional as the FOID law has survived for over 40 years.

Can you think of any other freedom enshrined in the Bill of Rights, where we must first get permission from the state to exercise that right? Getting permission from the state to merely own a firearm or even buy ammo is no different than being required to get a license before expressing your opinion or going to church. Only in Illinois.

About what you'd expect. Opt out of defending Illinois' same-sex marriage ban in court because she thinks it's unconstitutional, even though same-sex marriage isn't in the textual bill of rights or in the USSC's invented constitutional rights (yet). While simultaneously opting out of defending Cook County residents' right to bear arms, because she disagrees with a textual constitutional right.

Any civ if lawfully armed and carrying in the future is rolling the dice in any of tGreat Society shitholes. Except oddly enough, Detroit, which has similar laws to FL and recently hasn't been scalphunting citizens who defend themselves.

Get in a collision, or hung up somehow with the cops and all it takes is either a hard-ass cop who notices your gun, then a hard-ass states attorney and your middle-class life is over. Gone will be your gun and probably $40,000 in legal fees, and you still might do time under Quinn's heightened penalties for UUW.

I see how you practically called the poster stupid in that they did not read the US Constitution as you imply you did. Well, my friend, I need to remind you that the US Supreme Court narrowly upheld the interpretaion of the 2nd Amendment which allows personal ownership of firearms. It was 5-4. The four disenters stated that in their mind only a militia can own firearms and that is the states national guard. A turn on the court to a mor liberal bent and you could see a ban on individual ownership of any firearms. That is the declared intent of the liberal anti-gunners and they will never stop trying.

doesn't a states attorney have to take action against someone who violates a law? Whether a fan of CC or not, can he pick and choose? Can he decide not to prosecute someone based on what he likes and does not like?

I don't think he's allowed to abrogate his responsibilities like that.

8/21/2012 06:27:00 PM


he's not 'abrogating' his primary responsibility of upholding the US Constitution, since those laws which conflict with said Constitution are null and void at their inception.

try to understand which country you live in.

presuming you are capable of understanding.

Illinois is a defacto socialist state because it is completely run by the Chicago/Crook County Democratic machine, and every swinging d**k in that group is dedicated to following a socialist agenda (ie. govt control {through either outright ownership or more commonly regulation} of various aspects of the economy/society combined with govt central planning= socialism).

Socialists always think that they know what you really want better than you do. That is why socialist try to force certain car designs on the public (hybrids, small cars) when the public market place clearly does not want those types of cars, or why socialist think you need some type of govt healthcare mandate despite the public being 70% against such a thing. Socialist believe that you, the public, are incapable of caring for yourself, and are to irresponisble to be permited to carry a weapon. Therefore, dedicated socialist that they are, they force regulations on you that would prohibit you from such a "foolish" act. Socialist are also very good at making usre that they are the only ones with the guns, since most thinking people will attempt to resist govt intrusion of this nature into their lives. As Chairman Mao said, "power comes from the barrel of a gun", and you can bet you last dollar that Quinn, Madigan, Emmanuel and the rest of those SOB's are going to do everthing in their power to make sure that only they have the power.

Well done McLean County ASA. It is nice to finaly see some checks and ballances returned to govt.

The ASA Office is a part of the executive branch of govt.

The Legislative branch makes laws and can overturn an executive veto w/ enough votes.

The Judicial branch interpretts the laws and can overturn them.

The executive branch can choose not to enforce a law that the legislature has passed. This is the executive branch's check against unjust laws.

Once again, well done ASA.

Those crazies are here now, in the Chicago area. Take a look at the (Jennifer) Hudson family murders, and their murderer wasn't legally in possession of a gun.

I agree Illinois should have concealed carry. But not prosecuting a UUW offender in downstate IL isn't the same as what goes on in Chicago. I've never arrested a person for UUW who wasn't a shitbird. I don't think downstate police officers have the same amount of shit to deal with a Chicago police.

"Chicago is not safe anymore."

Chicago has unique problems that cannot be solved no matter how many laws they try to pass.

Just as Anita Alvarez picks & chooses what laws her office will prosecute, e.g. there is no "hate crime" when the victim is white, aggravated battery against a P.O. isn't aggravated unless you're seriously injured (although the law says otherwise), are just two examples.

I am as pro gun as one can be but I have a hard time with this. If the younger Herbie Pulgar is in Bloomington attending ISU on the scholarship he getd and has a gun on him sans FOID card, he gets a free pass? How do you differentiate? Obviously concealed carry with required training and clean background is the way to go!

There is Chicago and Cook County and then the rest of IL. That is the way it has always been and will always be.

In the last governor's election, Quinn won 3 counties out of 102 in the state... Cook, one near Peoria, and one near East St. Louis.

I think Illinois should start a new trend and just go straight CON-CON carry and do away with FOID.

There needs to be a real State gang banger registry so they can be tracked and excluded from owning and carry weapons,ammo too.

How about that goof Vaughn? He killed his whole family because he was tired of them, like the cable company, he wanted a change. So he put his gun to their heads.

What they need is some laws outlawing murdering your whole family! When that happens then people won't be killing their entire family by god! Sensible anti-killing-your-family-laws needed NOW! Enough of these lax murder laws. The National Murder Association cannot win this! Sensible murder laws needed now!

Once murder is outlawed, only outlaws will commit murder!

No. The States Attorneys took an oath of office swearing to uphold the Constitution. Anita is violating that oath every time she prosecutes an otherwise law abiding citizen for mere possession of a firearm. This guy is trying to do what's right. Alvarez should be removed from office for violating her oath.

This is the reason that the founding fathers included the 2nd amendment in the constitution. They knew that there may come a time when government got too big and started doing things that it shouldn't. They knew that the people might have to rise up and take control back, and to do that you need to be armed. The militia is "the people", not the national guard, contrary to what our screwed up Supreme Court might say.
