The state I live in, Illinois issued a statewide mask mandate on April 30th. Everyone has been wearing masks this whole time. They are ubiquitous. Unfortunately IL is now 4th in the nation in total cases. Masks make sense but they aren't quite the magic bullet that some people claim.
For me (a gun owner and CCW holder), a gun gives a nice secure feeling, but using deadly force is of course a last result and only for imminent deadly threats. An argument or road rage incident etc. non deadly alternatives are really important tools to have. Also empty handed skills like this...
It's not like they've had 4 years to get ready or anything. :rolleyes:
My wife and MIL had to wait two hours to vote the other day because they ran out of paper and only 1 machine was working. Seems like a lot of stupid incompetence.
