Even when concealed carry becomes the law of the land in Illinois, it’s not likely to change the habits of most residents.
A statewide poll finds 74% of respondents have no plans to obtain a concealed carry permit.
Only 20% of those surveyed say they will get a permit so that they can legally carry a firearm.
Lawmakers return to Springfield Tuesday to vote on whether to override Governor Pat Quinn’s recent amendatory veto of concealed carry legislation.
If they do so, the state will have six months to set up the process for issuing permits.
