    I thoUght it was illegal to carry guns in Chicago and Illinois? Someone better tell the bad guys that!!! Maybe, if law abiding citizens were allowed to carry guns to defend themselves, JUST LIKE THEY ARE ALLOWED to in the other 49 states, then law abiding citizens would have a chance to defend themselves and their family’s! Crime decreases when law abiding citizens are allowed to carry firearms!! Look it up and wake up people!!
