Must be hard to be a conservative living in a liberal mecca.
Check it out:

Officials in three Illinois counties have announced that they will no longer enforce the state’s ban on concealed carry.

They justify their decision by pointing to the Chicago-based 7th Court of Appeals Decision that found the ban unconstitutional in December 2012.

But the Illinois State Police, Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police, and Illinois Sheriff’s Association all jointly point out that a ban on concealed carry is still the law of the land: “Current Illinois law prohibits the carrying of an immediately accessible or loaded firearm on your person or in your vehicle regardless of whether it is concealed.” Therefore, any “persons in violation [of the ban] are subject to arrest.”

According to UPI, Clinton, Madison, and Randolph counties simply do not agree.
