(CHICAGO) Sheriff Tom Dart has a Cook County concealed carry gun permit proposal pending just in case the legislature fails to act on the issue. One part of Dart's plan is very controversial.
You’d have to have a good reason to need to carry a concealed permit under Sheriff Dart’s proposal. While taping “Connected to Chicago” for Sunday morning at 6:00AM, Dart said people in high-crime zip codes would have a presumed need, but not in low-crime zip codes.
“If there’s individuals that cannot demonstrate that they have this need, then they shouldn’t be eligible for it because underlying this is not this notion that everybody, everytime, anywhere can carry guns. That’s not what they interpreted the second amendment to be yet. Yet!”
But the other side is asking why should anybody have to get Tom Dart’s permission to exercise their constitutional right to keep and bears arms.
