    2nd Amendment Crossfire

     

    Chicago is the only major U.S. city where concealed carry of a firearm is prohibited--unless you are an alderman.

     

    The city sits in the state of Illinois where Democratic Governor Pat Quinn believes is not the best place for such legislation.

     

    With the rise of "flash mobs" and a growing fear that London riots could happen in the United States, the debate is becoming a major point of interest for the 2012 election.

     

    I want to do a story about how city residents are reacting who include those in favor of conceal and carry and others who feel that it could make violent crimes spike again.

     

    (The city's murder rate is half of what it was 20 years ago, but still very high)
