Regardless of how the Illinois General Assembly acts on passing some kind of carry legislation, a Springfield alderman wants to get a concealed carry ordinance passed giving gun owners the ability lawfully carry in the capital city.
Ward 10 Alderman Tim Griffin says that if the state legislature fails to pass a law by the court ordered June 9th mandate, or if they pass something that gives local municipalities the ability to craft their own measures, he wants to be ready.
Some initial ideas include having individual business owners decide if they want to allow carrying of concealed firearms in their business.
If not, they will be responsible for posting a sign.
Griffin also wants to have a database of Springfield businesses that won’t allow carrying concealed firearms accessible online so people can chose whether they want go to that establishment.
Griffin hopes to have a measure in front of aldermen in a few weeks.
