And on the senate side:

ILLINOIS

Senate:

SB2652 - repeals gun free zone on "Special Events" (concerts, etc)

SB2653 - repeals gun free zones on public gatherings (carnivals, parades, community festivals, etc)

West Virginia HB4250 looks like an attempt at constitutional carry as it strikes most of the current exceptions for carrying but leaves the phrase 'Any person'

Colorado HB1166 makes minor modifications to the concealed weapons application process that might make it a bit easier

Washington HB2551 would remove text from current law regarding the declaration of a state of emergency that prohibits the possession of firearms during a state of emergency

Kentucky SB88 would prohibit any regulations of firearms in any form by county, city or district boards of health

Utah HB0276 would change existing law to confirm that 'The mere carrying or possession of a holstered or encased firearm, whether visible or concealed,' does not constitute disorderly conduct

South Dakota HB1066 strikes one word, 'not' from Section 1. 22-14-27 of existing law (carrying in public building) making it a defense to a prosecution that the defendant holds a concealed carry permit

Missouri

HB1535 doesn't have any text yet but the title reads 'Specifies that certain firearms, firearm accessorie, and ammunition be considered instrastate commerce and subject to serial number checks', might want to add this one to your watch list to see what the actual text of the bill is.

HB1539 also has no text yet but the title states it would modify provisions related to safety training requirements for a concealed permit.

Mississippi

SB2478 would decrease some fees for concealed carry licenses

SB2465 would grant enhanced carry benefits for members of the military

SB2657 would add a new section to existing law to authorize gun trusts

Illinois

SB2646 would give authority to the state police to deny or revoke a FOID if the holder does not have at least $10,000 insurance that covers negligent acts

SB2669 would make it illegal to carry a firearm onto private property without prior permission from the owner

SB2653 would remove language about prohibited places (for carrying) in any public gathering or special event on public property

SB2654 would remove language about prohibited places striking 'Any building, real property, and parking area under the control of a public or private hospital or hospital affiliate, mental health facility, or nursing home.'

SB2652 would remove language about prohibited places 'Any building or real property that has been issued a Special Event Retailer's license as defined in Section 1-3.17.1 of the Liquor Control Act during the time designated for the sale of alcohol by the Special Event Retailer's license, or a Special use permit license as defined in subsection (q) of Section 5-1 of the Liquor Control Act during the time designated for the sale of alcohol by the Special use permit license.'

Ha! Illinois is trying all sorts of attacks on people wanting to carry. While most other states are making it easier on lawful carry. It just proves even more it's a peeing contest on gun rights over in Illinois.

Well, Pezo, there are a few good ones too, but we know they'll never get called to the floor for a vote while Michael Madigan is running the show in the House. Best we can do for now is play defense. UNLESS he wants something else unrelated that isn't too distasteful, then our reps might be able to call the pro-gun bills in as leverage (conservative trading stock.)

Illinois's legislative system is about as corrupt and power-driven as it gets.

Hey dc,

You're information was what prompted me to set a meeting with Minority Leader Congressman Chad Campbell. He was the sponsor for Arizona HB2346.

First time meeting with a Congressman, should be fun. I was impressed he was still open to meeting knowing I'm pretty much opposed to everything he is for.

One other in IL House and one in IL senate (in addition to HB4319):

Illinois HB4290 - A certified firearms instructor who provides or offers to provide false certification that an applicant has completed firearms training is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor, not eligible for court supervision, and permanent revocation of the firearms instructor certification.

SB2686 Provides that in cases when the holder of a valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card applies for renewal in accordance with the Act and the Department of State Police fails either to approve or deny the renewal of the card within 30 days... shall toll the expiration date of the applicant's Firearm Owner's Identification Card until the Department of State Police has renewed or denied renewal of the applicant's Firearm Owner's Identification Card or until 180 days after the expiration of the applicant's Firearm Owner's Identification Card, whichever is sooner.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I believe state preemption means that state law governs what is legal and not local ordinances. In the case of gun laws, a local government can not enact laws more restrictive than the state laws. State sets the standard.

I may be wrong, but this is the way I understand it. I hope someone will correct me if this is incorrect. Always looking to learn.

Yes, preemption means no local government can create any law that is more intrusive than what state law is.. in other words the state runs the rules.

Preemption means local government "MAY NOT" create any law that is more intrusive than what state law. I use the words MAY NOT in place of "can" as sometimes although not permitted, they pass illegal firearm laws anyhow and wait for the state to "force them" to back down. It is similar to the way "NO GUNS" signs do not prevent persons from entering with a GUN, but depending on state they make it illegal via trespass or direct force of law.

Below is a law firm's opinion from 2011 on preemption that says preemption is not so cut-and-dry (exceptions):

http://www.ciyoudixonlaw.com/firearm...ule-preemption

Example of locality in FLA that just does not care to follow the law:

Agreed there are those local governments that just don't seem to care, we have had several incidents here in PA where a local government had to be sued into complying with state law.

We have also started to see bills being introduced by state legislators that would require civil penalties when a local government is found in violation of state preemption laws (case in point the new Arizona bill I will add in my next post)

Georgia HB875 makes several changes to existing law including stopping anyone from being excluded from public housing because they own a firearm, removing bars & places of worship from prohibited places, changing the definition of a courthouse, possession on school property

This one you really need to take the time to look through, there are tons of changes in it

West Virginia SB445 clarifies current law about carrying a handgun for protection while hunting

Vermont H0706 changes language about possession on school property from 'while within a school building or on a school bus' to 'on any school property

Tennessee HB2180 would give handgun permit holders the right to pursue civil litigation if they are injured on the property of a business that prohibits firearms if the cause of the injury was the ban prevented the person from being able to defend themselves

Tennessee HB2145 is a federal law nullification bill

Tennessee HB2144 sets up preemption and would void any current local law controlling weapons

Arizona HB2517 also sets up preemption rules along with civil penalties for any political subdivision found to be in violation

Illinois SB2686 sets up a grace period when a firearm owners id card has expired and the holder can show proof of submission of a renewal application

dc dalton; the summary on Illinois SB2686 is incorrect. The bill doesn't address concealed carry licenses; rather, FOID (firearm owners ID cards).

http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/Bill...ionID=85&GA=98

(I posted a summary in post #37 that is accurate)

New bills submitted to IL Legislature:

Illinois HB4319 - adds multiple prohibited places to concealed carry; establishments licensed under the Video Gaming Act where alcoholic liquor is drawn, poured, mixed, or otherwise served for consumption on the premises; licensed fraternal establishment, licensed veterans establishment, or licensed truck stop establishment, as defined and licensed under the Video Gaming Act, and alcoholic liquor is not drawn, poured, mixed, or otherwise served for consumption on the premises. Finally, also provides that any person (rather than the owner) lawfully in possession and control of private real property of any type may prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms on the property (deletes under his or her control).

No problem, it helps to have a second set of eyes sometimes, especially early in the morning when ours aren't always working good yet!

I've only been tracking Illinois, specifically, to keep an eye on things for my concealed carry students - and for my own benefit so I don't get blind-sided by something. You've caught one that I missed the other day when I was doing my "morning routine", too!!!

We really do need input from people, this site is a MONSTER to handle when the laws come rolling in this fast ... and to let you in on a little 'secret' there's only two of us doing all the work (and we both also have our own businesses) so it can be overwhelming some times.

Having so many eyes looking and 'keeping us honest' really helps

Kentucky HCR85 would create a 'gun violence task force'

Somewhat misleading on Illinois HB4376; it does "add" language to the law regarding transportation of a firearm in Aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, and Unlawful use of a weapon, but the net effect is that it removes certain requirements to transportation.

Currently, people must transport a firearm broken down in a non-functional state, or unloaded and enclosed in a case, shipping container, or other container. This bill would strike the "broken down" and the "in the case..." portion for long guns. So the rifle, shotgun, "or other long gun" just has to be unloaded. Handguns are unaffected.

(Currently transporting an unloaded, uncased, but otherwise functional firearm can be a felony charge).
