Illinois is about as polar opposite as Florida in its politics, and yet they both have stand your ground laws, maybe because duty to retreat is ****ing retarded.
I have relatives in Illinois. don't go there often....but last time I did I checked to see if it was a state in which I could travel with my weapon. I could...if the damn thing was unarmed in a lock box in the trunk - ammo up front. totally retarded state. they may have a stand you ground law...but last I knew they don't want citizens walking around armed.
