    Good we got a start, lets see how long they can drag it out now. Hope they do something for us when we drive thru that state.

    Agreed,, I'm sure they will make it a long drawn out process. I am having high hopes that Wisconsin will be honored.

    I hope they get reciprocity with Ohio. I don't go to a State that I can't Carry in. So far my Ohio, Florida, and Pennsylvania Licenses cover ware I go.

    This is Illinois. The only thing that can slow this down are corruption,incompetence,sloth and stupidity.

    Don't celebrate yet. I predict Quinn will veto and with legislators out he will get a court order to stay the deadline. Predict Illinois will never get CC at least not Chicago. Hope I am wrong but these are slimy politicians

    "Forby said a restaurant or bar owner also can put up a sign that says no guns are allowed, but Sen. Ira Silverstein, D-Chicago, said the option is "ludicrous" because it would be hard to know who was complying with the sign unless there were a metal detector at the door."

    Well, isn't that also true OF THE CURRENT BAN ON CONCEALED CARRY IN GENERAL?!? Someone PLEASE explain to me how these morons keep getting elected instead of run out of town.

    Congrats Illinois... you have some of the highest taxes, crime, unemployment, firearms restrictions, political corruption, and state debt in the nation. Sounds like a great place to visit.

    The bill passed with super majorities in both the house and senate. It will be over ridden easily in a veto session.

    The AG can still appeal to the supreme court but no stay is possible. If it could have been delayed it would have been before now.

    I am not counting my chickens yet but I am not sure Quinn will veto. He is up for election next yr and is facing a primary battle just for the nomination. He can't afford a humiliating defeat by his own party. Bad for his rep and really bad for fund raising.

    It's a step in the right direction. I hope it gets signed into law for y'all up north.

    From what I have seen and heard it does not look like the Illinois bill includes any reciprocity at all to the couple of you hoping your states might be honored.

    I read that the fee is $150. That's pretty steep, depending upon how many years it covers.

    Even if IL allows reciprocity, don't count on Wisconsin being one of the states honored. IL is requiring 16 hours of training which includes live fire. Wisconsin has no such requirement. It is for this same reason Minnesota doesn't honor Wisconsin's permit.
