Let me introduce you to Illinois HB1231.
Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Armed Security Protection Act. Provides that beginning July 1, 2024, banks, pawn shops, grocery stores, and gas stations in municipalities having a population in excess of 2,000,000 inhabitants must employ and have on the premises at least one guard during the hours they conduct business with the public.
The bill requires that said guard be armed.
All of these places generally prohibit concealed carry under 430 ILCS 66/65. (I know, I used to live in Chicago. Most stores had the no carry sticker on their entrance.)
The Democrats did everything possible to eliminate concealed carry in Chicago.
But, now as crime is spiking, the Democrats want stores to pay money for armed security.
Apparently what separates a good guy with a gun from a crazy, dangerous, ammosexual, potential murder, is a paycheck.
Like magic, a guy getting a paycheck to carry a gun in a store is good. The guy who went through the same background check and us carrying a gun in the store but not getting paid to do so is bad.
Democrats love guns protecting them, just not in your hands.
