If the only history people learn is what is spoon-fed in public school, they've probably missed out on the part where northern states would capture escaped slaves and send them back to their owners. They've probably missed how northern states that were supposedly "free" wouldn't allow blacks to live within their borders. Everyone wants to turn up their noses at the South, but if you're…

Keep it up people we are setting a precedent and its only as matter of time before the stars and stripes have to be removed/changed due to protest from native Americans, or Al Sharpton (lets be honest the north had slaves just like the south). After that its the Union Jack for centuries of persecution against the scots Irish, and on and on and on. Hell my mere existence as a white male could be offensive…

Fifth Ward alderman says time is right

Quincy Alderman Mike Rein (R-5th Ward) has asked the city's legal department to draft a concealed carry ordinance as the State of Illinois prepares to deal with the issue.

At Monday's City Council meeting, Rein asked the Police Aldermanic Committee and the Quincy Police Department to “work through the procedures.” The City Council approved Rein’s request.

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals gave the State of Illinois a deadline to pass a concealed carry law after it threw out a ban on the law. The state has a deadline to write a new law, but Attorney General Lisa Madigan has appealed the ruling.

Rein said if the state decides to allow concealed carry on its own, he won’t pursue the ordinance.

Adams County passed a nonbinding referendum supporting concealed carry with 77 percent of the vote.

Also at the meeting, Historic Quincy Business District Executive Director Travis Brown provided copies of the HQBD Annual Report to the aldermen. He said the highlights of the year included hosting the Illinois Main Street Conference and posting a net gain of 16 businesses downtown.
