    When contacted by lllinoisCarry the NRA-ILA lobbyist confirmed the NRA-ILA was indeed lobbying against the bill and vowed to kill it. The reason given for the opposition was that the bill did not include statewide preemption, that it would create a patchwork of ordinances all across the state which could be detrimental to license holders, and it would ultimately be vetoed by Gov. Quinn and still need 71 votes for a veto override.
    I can see why they lobbied against it. Lack of preemption turns every county and city in the state into a trap for law abiding gun owners.

    Essentially the bill to allow CCW would have been a no carry bill, and still would have been vetoed by the Gov.

    I agree, this would be a nightmare for anyone trying to obey local gun laws...city to city.

    I'm curious as to how you all suggest we get Chicago to sign on to any CCW legislation? The only way we figure that is remotely possible is to allow them to have home rule over the CCW laws. I think it's pretty pompous for the NRA to assume they know better than the grassroots organizations that have been working very hard to get some sort of carry in Illinois.
