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.
All of which are abundant in Illinois...

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?!? :doh: Someone PLEASE explain to me how these morons keep getting elected instead of run out of town.

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.

Yeah, Iowa's is not recognized by too many places either because all you need for our permit is an approximately 2 hour class. That is it. No shooting required at all. Plus the permit is granted by your counties Sheriff, not the State.

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.
This sounds like New Jersey :rofl:
Except, we won't be seeing CCW in NJ anytime soon :nono:

You are correct. They will not honor any state's but you can get out of state for a small fee...$300.:eek:
I don't think governor will veto but I bet he let's it sit for the 60 days to drag it out as long as he can and then he can say he didn't sign it.

I'm not happy with this bill at all. As soon as it gets passed pro-gun legislators need to jump on it and start working on removing the whole mess of restrictive aspects.
