JAMES TARANTO: Carry Forward: Illinois joins the rest of the states in permitting concealed guns.

The Trib adds: “While gun owners may have questions about how soon they’ll be able to carry guns in public, other state residents may also have questions about where they can expect to find people armed with deadly weapons.”

That’s an easy one to answer: You can expect to find people armed with deadly weapons in just about any dodgy Chicago neighborhood. . . .

Wait, how could Chicago have all those shootings when it’s illegal to carry a gun? Don’t street criminals have any respect for the law? Oh wait, of course they don’t–which is why Chicago already had “virtually unregulated weapons.” The new law will allow honest citizens, those who do comply with regulations, to defend themselves.

It’s a civil rights victory.
