2nd Amendment

This past fall I decided that it was time for me to join the ranks of those permitted to bear arms. In Illinois, state law dictates that you must possess a FOID card in order to purchase a firearm. I applied for mine back in September, and recently received it. I also attended and passed hunter's safety (50 hicks and me out in New Baden, IL, most of them under the age of 13).

I purchased a firearm to make my home safer (argue what you may), but now it seems like even the elderly are able to do that, but this time, via a prescription from their doctor. I'm sorry, but this is pretty scary, and even makes me upset somewhat that insurance can be used for that purpose.

Happy Thursday :).
