Illinois has decreed that rest stops are “NO GUNS” locations for card-carrying good guys with guns.
That means bad guys can hunt there with impunity.
As this one did at a conveniently posted “gun free zone” rest stop:
PAW PAW (Pantagraph) — Illinois State Police say they are looking for a man who they believe killed a Monticello woman at a highway rest stop on Interstate 39.
Police said in a news release that 44-year-old Tonya D. Bargman was found at the Willow Creek rest stop on I-39 in northern Illinois about 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Surveillance video showed a man attacking her as she left a restroom at the rest stop.
The rest stop is just outside the small town of Paw Paw and about 40 miles south of Rockford. Monticello is 20 miles west of Champaign.
Police believe the attacker may be driving Bargman’s gray 2013 Nissan Altima.
The victim in this case is related to Guns Save Life family member.
Folks, gun-free zones are criminal empowerment zones. They are risky.
Avoid those locations when possible.
