Shorewood IL here,but also a place in Mesa AZ!!!!
elgin illinois.....work in Chicago....weeeeeeehhhoooooo!!!!
I GREW UP IN THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF ILLINOIS(jacksonville). MOVED TO GEORGIA 23 YEARS AGO. HAVE BEEN LEGALLY ARMED EVER SINCE. IT IS SAD YOU HAVE NO WAY TO PROTECT YOURSELF OR YOUR FAMILIES.
Embarrassed, I'm also from the state of our fearless leader on the illinois/Indiana border.
Moving out of this corrupt/hideous state to Arizona soon
Also live in Il on the In border- huge Cabela's 5 mins. away but it is in IN. I have to drive way up north for a Cabelas or west to a Gander Mtn.
I'm here too. I can be found running from the cops on a green motorcycle.

Central IL here.
Hey, maybe something is going to change. The Chicago Gun Ban Case, a pro 2nd Amendment Governor is leading in the polls, the people are upset.... AND I heard today that a HUGE Bass Pro Shop is planning to start construction near East Peoria.
Kudos to AZ, for having the balls to do what needs to be done, and do the job that the Federal Government is supposed to do but won't.
Know too that there are 14 other states that are seriously considering doing the same thing AZ has done. So your state is not the only one that feels our Federal Government is not protecting our Country the way it is obligated to do.
And screw those cities that are boycotting AZ for being a Real American State.
If MO was as hard hit with crime from Illegal Aliens as AZ is I would hope they would take the same actions.
+100 to your Governor and State Legislature for doing the right thing. And to the Arizona Citizens for supporting their actions.
Preservation of ones self and State must come first, otherwise you can not survive to help others in the future.
Southwest suburb of Chicago here. Near midway
I am a retired soldier and also a retired IL LEO.
Obviously, I am not young.
I am passioinate about my right to carry and also trying to get Illinois law changed so all of you can carry.
I have one of the very rare Illinois Concealed Carry permits as a retired LEO. That just means I really have to hide my carry piece because after almost 40 years of not being allowed to carry a firearm, Illinois residents have a tendency to over react when they see or catch a glimpse of a gun.
I belong to the NRA and the Illinois State Rifle Association and I am subscribing member of
I am hosting a Right to Carry Town Hall meeting for LaSalle County on June 13. There are currently town hall meetings scheduled for Winnebago County (May 26) Cook County (south) (May 27) Will County (May 25) Rock Island (June 12) St. Clair County on June 18 and a multi-county Town Hall at Fairfield IL on June 26.
For information go to the Illinois Carry website and learn more.
For far to long, the politicians of Cook County and owned by Richard Daley have controlled Illinois politics and restricted our rights as promised by the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution. The US Supreme Court will soon issue a decision on McDonald v. Chicago and we believe our right to own firearms will be restored.
If you really want to make a difference then help us fight.
Sorry for the bandwidth and I look forward to meeting many of you in the near future.
Wheeling, IL. My husband and I are wanting ccw to pass. Any new news on any attempts to pass it?!?!
I'm from Lacon IL, small town near Peoria. My town is full of gun owners, mostly hunters. I also have three police officers within two blocks of my house, so needless to say it's a nice neighborhood.
Central Ill. south of Champaign
Well, at last we are finally getting CCW, unfortunately they are trying to make it as much as a PITA as possible... anyway I live 12 miles north of the old capital city Vandalia if anyone else knows where that is....BFE
surely theres got to be some other forum members from illinois, huh?
I've had my Illinois CHL since March of this year. I don't find a lot of CPZs around here other than those mandated to be so in the carry law. There is even a bank in the area that has a sign that says legal concealed carry is welcome.
