Nine Illinois counties will vote Tuesday on whether concealed carry should be the law of the land in the state.
The votes are non-binding, but organizers hope the outcome will send a message to state lawmakers to get them to take action on concealed-carry legislation.
Illinois is the only state in the nation that does not permit lawful gun owners to carry their weapon with them. Governor Pat Quinn remains adamantly opposed to a concealed-carry law.
None of the 9 counties are in the 970 WMAY listening area; the closest is Adams County in West Central Illinois.
