    Copyright © 2018, More than 265,000 Illinois residents have a concealed carry license, about 2 percent of the state's adult population. But the state does not keep records on when these license holders fire their weapons, how often they do it, or if they wound or kill someone.

    bob1983, guns aren't violent. Do you think my EDC is mean to me, hits me, calls me names, forces me to go outside and shoot squirrels?

  • In regards to bo1983's point, even from what little data I provided it should be evident that there is much more to homicides than guns and even the number of guns in circulation that is the root cause of violent crime with firearms.

New West Ridge library growing fast, seeks residents' memories

Here's an excellent article by a reporter familiar to West Ridge, Linze Rice, about the new library at Western and Pratt. BlockClub is a worthy successor to the much-missed DNAInfo.

  • Block club is good; Rice is a good reporter except for one mistake: the senior citizen housing is not "affordable" housing--a euphemism--it is subsidized housing forcibly extracted from taxpaying citizens making their housing more unaffordable.
