Concealed Carry, Inc., an advocate group for the right to carry arms, is contesting Chicago's strict laws against concealed weapons. The maximum sentence there is a $500 fine/6 months and jail and minimum penalty is 10 days in jail.
Concealed Carry states it will give a gun away each month and people who enter the contest have to write about why they feel they need protection from criminals. Special consideration will be given to women and disabled people.
Winners will receive a 32 caliber semi-automatic Kel-Tec P 32 pistol which is worth $300. A spokeswoman for the police department warns contest winners that if caught: "You're going to be in jail with rapists and child molesters."
