    While reading our latest CCW News post about a CCW Permit Holder here: http://champaignccw.com/ccw-news/en...older.aspx

    It appears a permit holder pointed his permitted weapon at a tenant and told him to pay his rent or get shot. Does it get any more stupid than this? This is not the kind of person we want carrying concealed and I was glad to learn they pulled his permit.

    However, reading further they talked about a provision of the CCW law that allows the state to take away your gun rights for such an offense, where you can't even own a gun period for the rest of your life, because of a MISDEMEANOR! Where else in the country can this happen? A felony has been the bar for as long as we can remember for removing a persons guns rights, and now the politicians in Chicago have slipped in a way to do it for a minor misdemeanor.

    Clearly this guy deserved what he got. But what if you drew your weapon in good faith thinking your life was in danger, you didn't shoot, but now you are charged with an aggravated battery. Would it surprise anyone if a plea deal was offered that would require the person to give up their gun rights? Do you see the problems with this? And will this provision hold up when challenged.. and I'm sure it will be.

    What are your thoughts?:

    There doesn't look like there has been an update to this story. It said in the article there was a court date schedule for May 8th. Sound like a weak case against him however it is Shit-Cago.
