With Few Months Left, McLean County State's Attorney Won't Prosecute Gun Carry, FOID Laws


The McLean County State’s Attorney says he will no longer bring charges against people accused of violating concealed carry or Firearm Owner ID laws, unless there are some other extenuating circumstances.

 

Ron Dozier says he considers those laws to be unconstitutional, based on Supreme Court rulings.

 

His stand may be largely symbolic, since Dozier only has a few more months in office, but some Illinois prosecutors say they agree with his decision to exercise prosecutorial discretion.

 

However, Sangamon County State’s Attorney John Milhiser says he will enforce the laws as written.
