Illinois Lawmakers Try to “Tweak” Concealed Carry

SPRINGFIELD — Three months before concealed-carry permit applications go out, state lawmakers are trying to make some changes to the law. They hope some of those issues might come up as they return to the Capitol, Tuesday.

One change is stricter sentences for gun crimes. One lawmaker wants to ban guns from places serving alcohol. Another wants a stiffer penalty for carrying a gun onto school property. But the man behind the state’s concealed-carry law says
everyone needs to take a deep breath and hold off.

It’s a law which took nearly half a century to pass, and it’s taking months to jump start. Now some lawmakers want to make a few changes.

“I think there are some challenges with the bill. We need to make sure that we try to fix those challenges before it’s in place,” said Colleen Daley, Coalition Against Handgun Violence.
