Progress in Illinois

The critters in Springfield are crafting a concealed carry law, as ordered to by a federal court, and the order upheld in appeal. As usual for Ill-Annoys, they have made it as obtuse and useless as possible while possibly satisfying the letter of the court order.

Illinois House Bill 1155

Amendments backed by the NRA and other gun rights organizations are out there - but the Chicago Machine rules in Ill-Annoys, so hopes for a useful CCW law there are dim in my view. Still, ANY CCW law is marginally better than none at all - but I bet anyone attempting to carry in Chicago will find out first hand what the Crook County Jail looks like form inside - and spend $$$ to get free - and probably never see his weapon again...
