    Something tells me there will be a lot of amendments to this bill before it advances.

    I'm a bit fearful of that also. But, I've read in several places (forums and a couple articles, so take it for what it's worth) that Illinois legislators as a whole are more gun-friendly than you'd think, so I'm holding on to hope that this is pretty close to the final draft. I'm disappointed with the list of "gun-free" zones, but I haven't read through the bill thoroughly yet. I'm hoping, like in other states, that a business designated as "gun-free" has to actually post a sign stating they are.

    This is definitely a step in the right direction for Illinois. I'm afraid you will see some tight restrictions but atleast you will have an option to protect yourselves in places you can legally carry. I hope it passes.

    Take a look at the state congressional district maps before becoming too excited about anything Chicago won't like.

    Here is the make-up, which is pretty much Chicago, and whatever is left over:

    Very likely. Forced by the court to do something, though that "something" is likely to get used and abused before it passes the vote and signatures.

    Living in Wisconsin it's hard to go anyplace East or South East without passing thru Illinois. Great news and I first wonder how they will explain their pending reduction in the murder rate after this bill becomes law. Probably by crediting better law enforcement efforts (me thinks)
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    Anti-gun legislators seem to be stuck between a rock and a hard place, though. If a bill isn't passed by the 6 month deadline, isn't "Constitutional carry" instated? If so, seems like liberals will have to concede to just about whatever is put in front of them unless they are willing to deal with any joe schmo with a gun walking around armed. I'm not a politician or lawyer, however, so I may be way off base.

    Or, they could adopt "may issue" regulations like those in Hawaii.

    Well, at least you are on the road to getting it. First came the court ruling, and now there is actual proposed legislation which can not be ignored.

    They are going to have to work on it, and deal with it... and quickly!

    Congrats to Illinois... I can't believe I'd ever be saying that.

    At a glance, that looks substantially the same as the bill entered last session, which was a good bill.

    Hopefully it will make it into law without major watering down by the antis. Given the court ruling, the governor won't really have much choice in signing or not, unless he wants to spend more of the peoples' money on court costs.

    Keeping fingers crossed for you Illinois folks.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    As much as I want to believe, I have been around this State too long to think Chicago is going to allow this to happen. The rest of the State really doesn't have any say in the matter. I see a may issue New Jersey/New York/California type bill coming out of the legislature. Hope I am wrong.
