To the editor:
If a criminal wants your wallet, give it to them.
If a criminal wants your purse, give it to them. If a criminal comes
in to rob your business, empty your cash register and hand over all
the money and do not resist. This is the so-called sound logic
espoused by many Illinois political leaders and even some in law
enforcement. This is also the "sound logic" that criminals
absolutely love to hear.
A "license to carry" law allows any law-abiding citizen to carry
a concealed firearm for personal and family protection. The
applicant must pass a firearms course, submit fingerprints, a photo,
pay a fee, then be cleared through a background check before the
license will be granted. The law works; the law is successful in 48
states. Now is the time to act.
Call or write your state representative today and demand they
support a "license to carry" bill and demand your right to protect
yourself, your wife, your children, your family. Illinois is lagging
way behind the rest of the United States in this proven form of
crime prevention. Illinois needs to catch up and catch up now!
