    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — In a big victory for gun rights advocates, a federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down a ban on carrying concealed weapons in Illinois — the only remaining state where carrying concealed weapons is entirely illegal.

    No, I am not a mod, why would you think that, or even present it?


    The site owner did it correctly. Cite an excerpt, and a link.

    Further, you should go follow the link the site owner included...... He cited his OWN article.

    Because rather than joining in the discussion about the issue you went to the rule book.

    Regardless a great step in Ill. It will be a interesting 180 days.

    I certainly will from now on closely examine the rules at length before posting anything further. Please advise if any further changes need to be made.

    The bare reality is that copyright infringement lawsuits ARE pursued, and can be costly.

    I had no consternation, but understand that such costs can bury a site such as this one.
