IL: Stop Congress from trashing Illinois’ concealed gun protections

The people who think the Second Amendment phrase “well-regulated” means “not regulated at all” are back.

This time, they’re pushing a dangerous idea called “concealed carry reciprocity” that would allow people who get concealed gun carry permits in states that have absolutely no restrictions to carry those hidden, loaded guns anywhere in the country.

That means a state such as Illinois could no longer draw a line and refuse to give concealed carry permits to people convicted of violent misdemeanors, substance abusers, repeat drunken drivers or who have severe mental health issues.

I'm no genius, but I think this could be a moot point with just a simple fix: The concealed carriers permit must match their drivers license.
The problem comes when states make it too difficult whether by cost or the standards of "may issue" being too high. ALL states should be shall issue for a realistic cost.

As is typical, there is no comments section.

The first sentence in this piece is prima facie evidence that the author is a brainwashed tool of the anti-gun left, and is sadly lacking in English grammar and usage.

The term "well-regulated" modifies the noun, "militia", not the noun, "right" nor the noun, "people".

There is no way the 2A can be read to regulate the right; AAMOF, it prohibits regulation of the right, black-letter.

Wel regulated in the 2A means well trained, not todays term regulated as in laws!!!
