    Database: 38 concealed carry shootings in Illinois, 11 people killed
    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.

    More data would be useful.

    If you noticed the link I left above, is an example of data from states that have some history with lawful carry.

    I have not seen any published data from Illinois. Might be too early....but there is a real reason why 50 states now have *some* provision for carry.

    some have minor restrictions, others are near-impossible....but all 50 states have made allowances.

    11 states have now gone to "constitutional carry" based on the data that is similar to what the texas study has found.

    Mr. Douglas Raul Williams: unless you were a law enforcement or "peace" officer in Illinois, your mere possession of a "sidearm," let alone bearing it (presumably concealed) when watering your grass or cutting your lawn, violated Chicago's draconian "no weapons" City ordinance. (You don't self-identify as one permitted by law to possess a weapon.) You should be grateful that the statute of limitations on any violation has run, and that the Supreme Court of the United States held that the states and their municipal subdivisions lacked the authority to proscribe gun ownership to law-abiding citizens under the 2d Amendment as made applicable to the states through the 14th.
