Illinois: Concealed Carry Measure Advances In Springfield

Concealed Carry
A measure that would allow people to carry weapons in public is advancing in the Illinois Senate. Gun owners would have to apply to the Illinois State Police. The department would then ask local law enforcement whether there was a reason someone should not be licensed. The measure would also ban weapons from schools, day care, casinos, and stadiums. Those restrictions prompted a quick response from NRA lobbyist Todd Vandermyde:

“This is a bill to discourage people and prevent people from carrying a firearm and exercising their constitutional, fundamental right to keep and bear arms for self-defense in the public.” -Todd Vandermyde

Vandermyde says permit holders would have a hard time navigating the patchwork of rules. A Senate committee approved the measure on a party-line vote.
