Compromised Concealed Carry Bill Could Get Vote This Week


A compromise concealed-carry bill that is intended to bridge the wide gap between gun rights supporters and gun control advocates could come up for a vote this week in the Illinois House.

 

House Speaker Mike Madigan supports the legislation, as does pro-gun Democratic Representative Brandon Phelps.

 

While the bill contains a “shall issue” standard that requires state police to give permits to anyone who meets basic requirements, it also allows local law enforcement to object…which would send the permit request to an oversight panel.

 

The bill also creates a long list of places where people could not carry concealed weapons, including schools, amusement parks, libraries, and state and federal government buildings.
