Showdown continues over concealed carry in IL legislature

A gun bill showdown appears to be shaping up at the State capitol.

An Illinois Senate Committee rejected a measure Tuesday that already passed in the House of Representatives, and instead approved their own legislation.

Here’s the main difference: The House bill bans municipalities from drawing up their own concealed carry laws. It would also end Chicago’s ban on assault weapons.

CaptureThe Senate legislation would allow municipalities to approve their own firearm laws.

A federal appeals court is giving Illinois until June 9 to approve a measure that will allow people to carry guns that are hidden.

    Only Socialists could debate laws that violate our God given rights that are detailed in the Bill of Rights. Until, of course, they hide behind the fifth amendment.

    The NRA has not endorsed any of the bills mentioned here.
    A recheck of your "facts" are definitely in order.

    illinois could screw up a one car funeral procession – they want us to check the laws in each town we are going to travel in – lets vote in someone with a brain.

    Dear Elected Officials,
    Support the 2nd Amendment!!
    Do NOT allow Chicago to control the state! Do Not allow this "Compromise" to be presented on Friday the 31st to pass… its a bad bill for our state and the people who elected you…1 state 1 law!! haven't we put up with enough???
    Please prove that the oath of office you took meant something to you. Support the constitution… Allow us to protect ourselves without digging any deeper into my empty pockets, we've waited long enough.

    Thank you for your support
