If Only They Had A Gun

Courtesy of Learn About Guns, we have a new addition to the blogroll: If Only They Had A Gun.

This blog focuses on incidents in Illinois, one of only two states where concealed carry by peasants citizens is completely forbidden, and where gun and ammunition ownership is severely restricted and controlled. While open carry in unincorporated rural areas of Illinois is theoretically possible, state law prohibits open carry in a vehicle. So there are plenty of examples of how making people defenseless doesn't make them safe.

Contrary to the pipe dreams of the gun-ban crowd who seem to think eliminating guns will eliminate violence.
