Starting A Gun Store Still An Uphill Battle In Illinois

posted on September 29, 2015

Concealed carry is law in Illinois, but that doesn’t mean that it’s easy to buy a gun and get a permit. Anti-gun politicians continue to do everything in their power to block gun sales, as illustrated by events in the city of Evanston. 

The Daily Northwestern reports that while the city council defined five regions of the city in which gun ranges could be established, aldermen have voted for new hoops for potential business owners to jump through, including license conditions and insurance requirements. “We can’t ban them entirely, but we can regulate them. And we should regulate them as much as possible,” said Alderman Brian Miller. 

Their intended outcome is that entrepreneurs become so frustrated with the red tape that they move on to other locales. “If you ask me, we should have the ability to limit what kind of guns people should have,” added Alderman Donald Wilson, “but the Supreme Court doesn’t agree with me.”
