Do you think concealed carry legislation is a good or bad thing for the state of Illinois?

“I believe in concealed carry. I believe that it helps reduce crime.”

Bryan Barbour, Spring Valley

“I am for concealed carry because I believe the people should be able to protect themselves and their property.”

Lynn Delaney, Princeton

“I think it is a good idea to have concealed carry.  The bad guys are already carrying, so it is time to put guns in the good guys’ hands.”

Nancy Monier, Walnut

“I don’t mind people owning and buying guns, but I don’t believe it should be concealed.”

Carolyn Schmitt, Princeton

“With the way people are now, it scares the heck out of me. Look at road rage; the next thing you know they will be shooting each other.”

Carol Moore, Neponset
