Chicago Guns Matter is an organization made up of pro-gun advocates in and around Chicago, who are here to share with the urban community how to exercise their fundamental constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Our goal here is for law-abiding citizens in the City of Chicago to learn how to legally possess firearms, as well as the steps needed to obtain the Illinois Concealed Carry License.  We are putting faces to the cases, so that you are aware of the plaintiffs that have fought for your rights. You will learn about the history of gun ownership issues in Chicago, and who's making a difference in your right to keep and bear arms.

This site will be your portal to safety, training and education in the use of firearms.

We are not here to incite violence, we are here to incite education.

Who Helped Restore My Rights?

The people pictured below are just some of the people who have gone out of their way to make firearms possession possible for Chicagoans, and to make the ability to carry a concealed handgun for personal protection within the reach of the law-abiding residents of Illinois.
