Packin’ Pistols in Illinois

BIG WIN for 2nd amendment supporters in Illinois.

This past Tuesday, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a ban that made it illegal for anyone to carry a concealed weapon in Illinois. Illinois is the only state that does not allow some form of concealed carry. The federal appeals court gave Illinois lawmakers 180 days to draft a reasonable law. The court of appeals said that the ban was unconstitutional and suggested that legalized conceal carry was long overdue. Duh.

My personal goal is to reach those people that are pro 2nd amendment, but maybe are not involved in the cause, or aren’t exactly sure what is going on, AND to reach those that are anti-gun, and shamelessly change their mind. Being a regular, small town girl, married, with 5 sons, who happens to be a gun owner, I represent a good percentage of families just like mine. Now is the time for us “regular folks” to make our voice heard.
