    It is going to be hard to keep Chicago from carving anything out of the bill with the way preemption laws are in that state. They need to get rid of that but the only way that happens is to have all antis in Chicago onboard and hard to see that happening.

    I finally got around to reading the bill all the way through and came across the below portion:

    "(i) Persons with the following training or certifications

    are exempt from the requirements of subsection (a) of this
    Section:


    (1) An NRA certified instructor.
    (2) An individual who has qualified to carry a firearm
    as a retired law enforcement officer.
    (3) Any active, retired, or honorably discharged member of the armed forces who held a combat
    related military occupation specialty (MOS)."

    (Subsection (a) refers to the training requirements.)

    I was honorably discharged from the Air Force where I served in the Security Forces (Military Police), but did not spend any time in an actual combat zone. Anyone know if SF would qualify as a combat related MOS or would I have needed to actually serve in a combat environment? Any SF folks in other states get out of the training requirement due to their service? In all likelihood I would still do the training because it's been a few years since I discharged and could use the refresher. But, was curious.

    Come on Missouri reciprocity!!!! Doubt they will allow ANY reciprocity, but you gotta let a guy dream.

    The bill says that Illinois would recognize the license of any State that recognizes its license. So, assuming this bill passes and Missouri accepts Illinois' CCW then you'll be golden! (I know, some big "ifs"!)
