On the side of I-64
Arrived at the hotel safely. Interesting scenery on the drive into Louisville, though. Thanks to Erin for taking the picture while I was driving.
but FUCK YES!!!
Finally there will be legal carry in IL by people that aren’t politicians. I really hope the Republican side of the ILGA sticks it hardcore to the Chicago group. Now that we have to pass a law, we should make it the closest we can to Vermont-style carry. Shall-issue, non-binding signage, few restrictions, etc. The anti-gun lobby had their chance to pass a restrictive bill earlier this year. They held it off by only 5 votes from a 3/5 majority needed. Now they’re the ones that need a vote, or it might just end up as Vermont-style carry by default.

I read and interesting quote the other day.
“Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.”
—Mahatma Gandhi (Autobiography, by M.K. Gandhi, p.446)
I must confess an amount of ignorance concerning Gandhi and his life. I’ve heard him referenced before, and had a vague notion of what he stood for, but have never really studied him, even in passing. I’ll be adding his autobiography to the ever growing pile of books I need to consume.
I know the general rule of polite society is not to discuss politics or religion, but I found this to be very well written. A friend of mine wrote it and I’ve decided to post it here with his permission.
Also, this is the internet – we’re not in polite society.
