Does anyone out there know the status of the bill? I can't find any press on it. Most recent I've found is from March 8th. I think I remember hearing it was passed in a committee.

I keep reading that it will be voted on in "the beginning of April". Never read an exact date. It better pass, it's about time!

DO NOT sit, wait n hope.................contact your elected officials NOW.

find yours at this link......................

http://www.ilga.gov/house/default.asp

send em this message.........................

Please initiate and/or support legislation
that DEEMPHASIZES gun control and
PROMOTES concealed or open carry
of hand guns in Illinois.

Hand gun bans and gun controls have
not been an effective deterrent to crime.
The only persons controlled by these
laws are the law abiding citizens.

Gang bangers and criminals obtain and
use firearms illegally on a daily basis.

Please allow the honest people to defend
themselves against attackers and place
the residents of Illinois on an equal level
with the other States that allow their
citizens to own and carry handguns.

Thank you for your consideration.

Don't get your hope up too high.
Even if it makes it through, gubnor O'Quinn has indicated he won't sign CCW into law.

True, but his decision can be vetoed and the bill passed by a majority of votes in the House. (or something like that.)

Already did that.....a few times. I also know that, that ()o() quinn says he will veto it. However it still has hope....Just more red tape if he does.

I think that is the right bill. As of today it is "Placed on calendar order of 3rd reading- Short debate".

Called my Rep. and he supports this bill. Now everyone needs to call their representitives and urge them to do the same.

Has to come out of committee first...speaker, then voted on, then passed by other senate...then signed by governor (he promised to veto any carry bill), then overrode by sixty precent majority of both houses.

Lots of work to do yet

One of the most coherent articles on CCW I've seen.

ie : "The record of the past two decades demonstrates that you can strengthen the right of law-abiding adults to protect themselves against crime without making the world more dangerous. That knowledge is helpful in Illinois, to those willing to learn from experience."

My Rep is a co-sponsor, so I presume he'll vote for it when it comes up.
