Former Rep. Joe Walsh, a Tea Party favorite who lost his reelection bid in 2012, wrote on his website that even if there are concealed carry laws, law-abiding citizens have the right to ignore them.
“We’re at a point in this stupid state where we need to begin to break the law,” Walsh, R-Ill., wrote, adding: “It’s time for civil disobedience.”
“Yeah, the media is going to say I’m irresponsible. Yeah, the media is going to say I’m crazy. I don’t care if we don’t have a conceal carry law right now,” he continued. “There isn’t a law-abiding citizen in this city that doesn’t have the right to protect themselves … and if that means breaking the law to do it, we’re going to do it.”
As The Huffington Post reports, Walsh was referring to an ongoing debate in the state over concealed carry laws, following an order by a federal court for the state to propose a new concealed carry law by June 8, after a previous version of the law was ruled unconstitutional.

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
