Legal Concealed Carry In Illinois In Exchange For ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban?

Here’s an interesting twist on recent gun “control” efforts in Illinois. From Political Editor Mike Flannery tonight on the website of FOX Chicago News:

State Rep. LaShawn Ford, co-chair of a legislative task force on guns, is proposing a compromise on assault weapons and concealed carry.

If gun-rights groups accept a ban on so-called assault weapons, Ford said he and some other Cook County Democrats would support allowing each county to decide for itself whether residents may carry loaded firearms.

(Editor: Italics added for emphasis)

Earlier this week, I blogged about Illinois Governor and Chicago Democrat Pat Quinn proposing a statewide ban on “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” ammunition magazines.

According to Representative Ford, the reason for the proposal is more revenue- in the form of concealed-carry permit fees- for the financially-strapped state.

Call me crazy, but I have a feeling this proposal will be met by gun rights groups active in the state of Illinois with something along the lines of what U.S. General Anthony McAuliffe told the Germans when given a surrender ultimatum during the Battle of the Bulge in World War 2…

“Nuts!”

The next couple of days should be interesting here in the “Land of Lincoln” as it concerns the battle between gun rights and “control.”
