Illinois draconian gun laws and rights suppression on guns is one of the main reasons I left that state. You cant even buy ammo without an F.O.I.D.
Thats a firearms owners Identification card for those of you who dont know. Want to carry concealed? Not going to happen unless your a cop, ex-cop or
criminal. They dont give concealed carry licenses to us lowly everyday people.
Look at Chitcago. The strictest gun control laws in the nation, yet they have the most violent murder and gun crime rate. What a miserable place.
Glad I left and didnt even look in the rear view mirror.
Yeah I'm disgusted by Illinois. I'm also in Cook (Crook) county just North of O'HAre airpor and the corruption here is SKY High, mafia type politics
and I'm moving out of here by August 1st when my lease is up.
I bought a used truck this past summer (got a good deal on an F150) and just before Xmas I get a tax bill for Crook county for $200 for a used truck.
They secretly passed this county tax Bill on Xmas day 2011 and they don't tell you about it at the currency exchange when you do your registration.
So broke people who buy a $200-$500 used car just to be able to get to work also get hit with this tax.
But the Gun ban itself is disgusting. I'm so outta here. Every night on the local news, there are new murders on the South or West sides of the city
by hand guns. Their City ban has done nothing to stop the murders and guns here. I can go right now to the Ghetto and for $100-$200 buy a revolver
from a gang member, although the gun by then was already used in several murders.

So does that tell you that taking away guns from law abiding citizens in an entire state is a smart move or not?
Living in Chicago (or Cook County for that matter) is much different than the rest of Illinois. Having the most restrictive gun laws in the country
does not seem to be helping!
Yeah outside of Crook County, it starts to get more rural and country like in Illinois. There are large amount of hunt clubs and hunting in general
outside of the cities is Hugely popular here.
Either way, I am sadly disgusted in my stomach for the State of Illinois and the corruption, taxes, costs of living, and this new gun ban bill here
and I'm on my way out and taking several family members with me moving out of state
