CC in Illinois? One Step Closer!!
 
Quote:

Concealed carry bill passes House committee

Quote:

House Bill 148, sponsored by state Rep. Brandon Phelps, D-Norris City, would authorize Illinois residents 21 and older to apply for permits to carry concealed firearms in public. Similar proposals were introduced in the Senate. The proposal would need approval from lawmakers in both chambers.
The best part? The sponsor of the bill is a democrat!

Oh - could be very happy days for us Illinoisians indeed!! :D

This was brought up a little bit ago but well worth bringing up again. I hope it passes but someone mentioned that Chicago has the most population and it might be hard to get this bill passed because of that.

That may be true but since when did logic and facts make any sense to the Chicago politicians?
