    Il State - Concealed carry advocates continue efforts - Legislatative Vote Soon?

    SPRINGFIELD -- The sponsor of a bill that would allow Illinois residents to carry concealed handguns is waiting for a task force to finish its work before calling the legislation for a vote.

    Rep. Brandon Phelps, D-Harrisburg, said lawmakers want to hear what the Firearm Public Awareness Task Force (and you know they only have your 'best' 2A Rights in mind.....) will say about the impact concealed carry might have on public safety. The House created the task force after Phelps’ legislation, House Bill 148, was defeated.

    The task force’s deadline is Dec. 31, but Phelps said he is ready to call the bill for a vote if the legislature holds a special session .....

    ...snip...

    “I want to make sure we have the votes. I think that our law-abiding gun owners want it to be done right,” Phelps said.

    The chairman of the task force is Rep. LaShawn K. Ford, D-Chicago, who voted “present” on HB148. Ford did not return repeated calls asking for comment.

    Because it would overrule city laws on handguns, state concealed carry legislation needs 71 votes, a supermajority, to pass the House instead of the typical 60. In May, HB148 got 65 votes.

    ..snip...

    If HB148 was signed into law today, Illinois residents with a valid FOID card would have to apply for concealed-carry permits through the Illinois State Police.

    My Comment: If you live in Il, you might want to pass the word for everyone to light the phone and FAX lines to your Leglsilature/Reps. Good luck from the rest of us!

    I fear Cook and Du Page counties will keep this from happening. Maybe another couple of years of insane murder rates will make Chicago residents stand up and elect people that share their interests instead of their own.

    100 years of political corruption hasn't caused them to change the political machinery of Chicago, what is another couple of years going to do.

    I guess one thing that might help Chicago, would be to take the voting booths out of the cemetery's. Once the dead are no longer allowed to vote, you might get a fair election there.

    Exactly. I spend a lot of my time supporting this issue. I really don't know what the answer is. Common sense all gone out the window. It just floors me how corrupt cook county is. I have 15 relatives in Illinois that are all associated with the criminal justice system from local to federal...one being a Chicago judge. All support CCW so how it has difficulty passing...your guess is as good as mine. Very disappointed in our corrupt political system in Illinois.

    We see your passion on this. I am behind the fight for Il since it, and D.C. represent the worst of 'them' steppin on our collective God Give Rights to defend ourselves.

    I admire the persistence of thise pushing the issue, but the reality of Illinois politics makes it a virtual impossibility in the forseeable future. Madigan will never let even come up for a vote.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Grew up in down state Illinois....today, I'm carrying my Glock 26, Keltec PF-9 and brought along my Walther PPS in my brief case. Simple advice: Move.
    Illinois will never change, and the lawless will always have their way with the law abiding. Its the "Chicago Way".

    I'm not going to hold my breath, but I sincerely wish the decent people of Illinois the best of luck on this matter. If it fails you need to express your disgust in future elections or invest in moving.
