Eating with gang-bangers in Oak Park

Sen. Don Harmon about the proposed new gun law . . .

. . . supported the idea of banning guns in places that serve alcohol, especially in his hometown of Oak Park where many restaurants would fall into that category. “I don’t think I would want to be worrying about who is carrying a weapon while I’m at dinner,” he said.

I’d put it differently: I would not want to be worrying about who is ready to kill someone. And I would ask if the new bill would add to that # of people in Oak Park.

I would also reference this online comment from CGS, posted today at 9:32 a.m.:

The gang bangers on the streets of Oak Park and Chicago are already armed, illegally. Law abiding gun owners who go through rigorous back ground checks and training are not the problem in our society. law abiding gun owners are not breaking out shooting people. Carry Concealed has not caused the wild west in the 49 other states.

Doubling down on that last, asking how it’s going in the 49 other states.
