THE MOST RETARDED STATE in America finally ends its long secession from the United States Constitution.
The list of loopholes in the rushed-through concealed-carry law is as long as your arm. The law practically prohibits carrying in exactly the sorts of situations where you really need to carry a weapon – like on public transit. (How many muggings, assaults, rapes and murders occur to people at, or walking to or from, public transit stops?)
You also can’t carry near a school; the only “safe zone” is a locked vehicle. In other words, the law institutes economic and/or lifestyle discrimination against non-drivers: either those who choose not to drive, or who increasingly find it prohibitively costly in Rahm’s Chicago.
