The Illinois Constitution says it all

What the Illinois State Constitution says about the right to bear arms, speaks volumes on the state's attitude as a whole.  The fact that it states firmly that you must be allowed to keep and bear arms, except that it also states you can't.   Read these eloquent weasel words and judge for yourself:

    Subject only to the police power, the right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Whenever you read a phrase like "police power" it normally means the lawmakers of the government, which is documented in the Illinois Criminal Code.   So what does the "police power" say about keeping and bearing arms?   It says keep them, yes, sure... until we don't renew your FOID card. 

Bear them?  You mean, carry them on you?  Oh no... no no no silly citizen.  That is reserved for Law Enforcement, we only want them shooting unarmed individuals.
