    IL House of Representatives Expected to Vote Soon on
    Right to Carry Bill HB148!


    Illinois state representatives return to Springfield Tuesday, April 26 and many believe a vote on Right to Carry bill HB148 is imminent. It is urgent that you call your state representative and firmly but politely ask them to support your right to protect yourself and your family. Urge them to vote YES on HB148.

    Every single vote will be critical for passage of the bill and it is common knowledge that legislators in the northeast portion of the state tend to oppose this legislation. If you live in the northeast part of the state, this call to action is especially important. If you have family or friends living in that area, please call them and urge them to contact their legislator.

    Need help finding your state representative?
    Go to Illinois State Board of Elections -http://www.elections.state.il.us/DistrictLocator/DistrictOfficialSearchByAddress.aspx

    or

    call 217-782-2000

    I called my rep 2 weeks ago. The woman at his office said he was not available and took a message saying that he will contact me. I am kind of upset I have still not heard from him. Time for a call back i think.

    The lastest version of the bill has been posted on the GA website. It is not too bad.

    There is some very heavily moderated discussion going on at IllinoisCarry.com on the bill.

    Actually it is not really discussion so much as the mods posting what they think about questions people are PMing them about the bill.

    No actual discussion is being allowed.

    The bill can speak for itself for the most part.

    http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/fulltext.asp?DocName=09700HB0148ham002&GA=97&SessionId=84&DocTypeId=HB&LegID=54713&DocNum=148&GAID=11&Session=

    Having read it I can't see any reason not to support it.

    No idea if it has any chance of passing or not. It seems close, but a supermajority is tough to get and even tougher to keep.

    Time to do whatever you are willing to do to see this thing passes.
