  1. I am disgusted. I agree…don’t carry if you don’t want to be fined.
    We need to get together to get our local governments to make their own ordinance. As it stands now, concealed carry is not legal in Bloomington.

    It says:

    Section 1 : Concealed Weapons – Prohibition of – Penalty.

    It shall be unlawful for any person within the limits of the City to carry or wear under his clothes, or concealed about his person, any pistol, revolver, sling shot, cross knuckles or knuckles of lead, brass or metal, bowie knife, dirk knife, dirk, razor, dagger, or any other dangerous or deadly weapon; or to display or flourish any such weapon in a boisterous or threatening manner. Every person guilty of a violation of this Section shall be fined not less than Twenty-five Dollars or more than Two Hundred Dollars; provided that the provisions of this Section shall not be held to apply to any policeman, constable, or other peace officer while in the discharge of his duty, nor to any person summoned by any such officer to aid in making an arrest or preserving the peace.

    Section 2 : Confiscation of Weapons.

    Any such weapon or weapons duly adjudged by any police magistrate or justice of the peace of said City to have been worn or carried by any person in violation of the preceding Section of this Article shall be forfeited and confiscated to the City, and upon the trial of any person for violation of the preceding Section of this Article, the magistrate before whom such trial takes place shall enter up such forfeiture as part of the judgment and penalty for any such violation.

  2. Less hassle to keep one in a fanny pack and a clip in a pocket. Loading time, 2.5 seconds. Much quicker than making a phone call.
