Illinois House to debate concealed-carry laws today
Illinois is the only state in America that doesn’t allow citizens to carry concealed weapons; but that may change.
House speaker Mike Madigan plans to open house debate on concealed-carry Tuesday.
Test votes could be taken on issues like concealed-carry in churches, casinos, sports stadiums, on public transit and even in day-care centers.
It’s a departure for Madigan, who normally prefers to cut deals privately, then present finished legislation to the House.
