    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.

    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

    Excellent Article In Favour - From the Chitrib Too

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/ar...ncealed_truth_about_carrying_guns_109401.html

    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.
