Latest Gun Bill To Be Rewritten

Senate Democrats say the latest proposal for a new concealed carry law in Illinois will be withdrawn and rewritten before it’s officially filed. 


The Associated Press obtained a draft of that bill, sponsored by Democratic Senator Kwame Raoul.  It calls for granting concealed carry permits only to persons of, quote, “good moral character” who have shown a “proper reason” to have one. 


Gun rights advocates call that language too vague and say they want an objective standard where permits could only be denied if a person was a felon or did not get proper training.  A spokesperson for Senate Democrats says the bill will be revised.
