Migraine, you are so right on, government isn't concerned about citizen's welfare, it's always been about money, power and control. Why do barbers, hairdressers and other such jobs need a license from some state bureaucracy? It's about the money?

See, I like that big, empty lot at the corner of 8th/Jersey. Put up a nice, multi-story building, move the county's sheriff's offices and jail over there with underground parking like the city police have. Put in some space for the state police to have an office or two in there as a satellite to the Pittsfield office, and keep some space for growth as needed. Put the jail in the upper sections…

This facility pre-dates my arrival in Quincy, so I'm wondering if there was a jail facility in there all the time, even when the city owned the building? There is an obvious need for a new county jail, but can we construct and outfit this government building for less than $500/sf?

Do you know how old that jail is. Older than a lot of you. It was built in the early 50s or late 40s. It IS time for a new jail but "good luck with that". Too many people are too much in to their own life to be concerned about something they'll probably never see or use. I agree with migraine-in-qcy that it doesn't have to be pretty, but it DOES HAVE TO BE SAFE for those working there.…

Lawmaker urges "common sense" concealed carry law

Chicago Democratic state representatives says concealed carry "is coming" to Illlinois

From pantagraph.com:

A state representative from Chicago says lawmakers across the state must work together to craft a rational and "common sense" concealed carry law.

Democratic state Rep. Ken Dunkin told an audience at a town hall meeting in Chicago Saturday that concealed carry "is coming" to Illinois. He and other Chicago lawmakers held the meeting to gather input from constituents about proposed firearms legislation.

A federal appellate court judge ruled in December that the state's concealed carry ban was unconstitutional. He gave lawmakers 180 days to write a law legalizing it.
