Please Leave Your Handgun At Home





Anti gun signs are popping up all over the place in the past few days. With the recent court ruling throwing out the ban on gun sales in Chicago and with concealed carry on the horizon many businesses (not just Merry Maids) are nervous about patrons bringing in firearms. Towbar and Taste in Jarvis Square are just two examples of local businesses of where you can't bring your pistol.

Where else has this notice been posted? Or where hasn't it been?

Pursuant to 430 ILCS 65/66 - With some no guns allowed posters the Illinois statute is incomplete.

Individuals licensed to carry a concealed firearm under the Firearm Concealed Carry Act are prohibited from carrying a firearm on, or into, any of the prohibited areas (Basically establishments that put this poster on their door) listed under Section 65 of the statute. Private property owners may also prohibit individuals from carrying a concealed firearm on, or into, property under their control.
