Concealed Carry Debate Heats Up In Illinois House


It’s a sign of just how heated the debate on concealed carry is likely to get before a final bill is passed.

 

Lawmakers erupted in a shouting match on the floor of the Illinois House Wednesday, while debating an amendment that would give law enforcement more latitude to reject concealed carry permits.

 

Republican Representative Mike Bost began screaming at a Democrat who was criticizing the remarks of pro-gun lawmakers.

 

That Democrat, Scott Drury, then said of Bost… “we don’t want someone like that carrying a concealed weapon,” sparking another tirade from Bost.

 

That amendment was ultimately defeated.
