Gun permits more popular than Obamacare in Illinois

After the dreary post yesterday regarding Obama getting ready Executive orders to limit those who could purchase guns, Obama to tighten Gun Control for those who ever took an anxiety pill?  this is a bit of a pick me up. Take that Zero, and Eric Holder. Does anyone think we can get by this way without a major conflagration over this issue?

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:

On the first full day of an online sign-up, more than 4,500 concealed carry applicants gunned it to a state website to register for state permits, the Illinois State Police confirmed Monday.

Authorities have estimated 350,000 to 400,000 people will sign up for permits to carry their handguns in public within the first year of the law’s passing — close to 1,000 people a day.

Illinois is the last state to allow concealed carry. Legislators passed the law last summer after a federal appeals court ruled the state ban unconstitutional.

    A poke in the eye with a sharp stick is more popular than Obama AND Obamacare..

    I saw this state today as well and it is good news! The people are not going to let this issue go by without a fight and I think Obama may have underestimated how many people are willing to “cling” to their guns! Great news indeed!

    As the left goes kicking and screaming they may soon be able to take credit for any drop in murder and other violent crime rates. They cannot lose.
