: Yeah I can’t help but keep thinking the same thing. Can’t quite wrap my head around why I keep reading about shooting sports events in Illinois, when I’m afraid to drive through the state with a legal gun in my trunk.


Why the hell is a national championship for any shooting sport being held in Illinois? Nothing like supporting the enemy with the dollars spent in such an anti-gun state?
