The Daily Herald - Concealed Carry

Forgive the 2nd Amendment concentration, but it is the hot thing in the news these days in Chicago - mainly "How do we make gun control regulations even tighter."

On a radio broadcast Sunday, a gentleman from DownsizeDC.org said something like "Well, in my county, there are at least 800 of those concealed carry guys walking around and I feel pretty safe with it that way, knowing that there are extra good guys out there ready to help out if a problem arises." I've heard some good discussions too about how Concealed Carry laws are similar to being able to learn CPR - they make the trained citizen the first responder and to not force you to WAIT on the government for assistance. As has been seen twice in the last week in the Chicagoland area, it's impossible to have immediate response from the government.

Here's a letter to the editor that ran this morning in a Northside newspaper.
