Thank God I moved out of that Nazi gun-hating state 10 years ago. The sad thing is, most of the state is pro-gun and moderately conservative. Unfortunately, the urbanites of Chicago (which should be it's own state) have more votes than damn near the rest of the state combined. What a horrible place to live....when I was a cop there, my department instituted a no pursuit policy and would not allow us to carry a back-up piece (or be terminated upon discovery of such weapon). I love Colorado.....it's not perfect, but they let good, honest, law abiding citizens bad, law breaking criminals who break into their homes (Illionois has a retreat law)....and we have a shall issue CCW law. :madeuce:

And if they don't have 'em, they'll manufacture the votes they need. ;)

Are you sure you aren't talking about Seattle/ King County? They seem to dictate what this state does.
