Governor Quinn is going to pay these folks $37,571 a year to sit on the Illinois Concealed Carry Licensing Review Board to evaluate concealed carry applicants who are challenged by a local law enforcement officials.

We expect that will probably come out to about minimum wage for the time they will spend sifting through all of Cook County Sheriff “Little Tom” Dart and Chicago Police Superintendent gary (that’s Gary with a little “g”) McCarthy’s challenges.

Here they are:

  1. These people are probably related to the Chicago Machine in some way…payoff for supporting the the DEMS in chicago!

  2. If Illinoistan is ‘shall issue’, what is the justification for a ‘Review Board’? Is this not a Freudian slip that ‘may issue’ is what TPTB intend?? Seems to me if you pass the ISP/FBI background check, then you SHALL be issued a concealed handgun license. No?

    Like ILLCCWAdvocate says, 5 of 7 are from Chicagoland and probably are ChicagoMachine jobs…no, I’m not cynical. Maybe it’s just a friendly reminder that downstaters don’t run the show, even though the law may state otherwise.

  3. Any bets this board will be a joke?
    If we respected the 2A has it was written by the founding fathers we wouldnt need these stupid review boards or FOID cards for that matter.

    On another note the new background check BS will take effect on Jan1. The nra pulled their opposition to the Bill over the objections of the ISRA.
    Because of that I am done with the NRA!

  4. Out of curiosity, does anyone know what makes them so ‘special’ i.e., what are their qualifications? What credentials allow them to be part of the licensing review board? I’m not going to lie and say I won’t be surprised if this is just part of the Chicago machine but just curious to why they were appointed instead of a more aggregated sample of Illinoisans’ best interests. What makes them better than representative(s) from Central IL (read: the rest of Illinois that ISN’T Chicago)…

    1. Well, that’s a given. But I’m more curious on what proof they have that these people are qualified to do their job, if asked by FOIA or the news…

  5. We’ll I guess it’s another chapter in the fight book we gotta fight that too. .. –“”–
