Pro-gun IL senators and representatives continue to push for concealed carry in the last no-carry-whatsoever state left standing. State Representative Mike Bost is urging citizens to sign a petition supporting the passage of HB 148 which would legalize concealed carry in the state.
Cook county area legislators, principally, have held off the rest of the state in passing the measure. It does seem like only a matter of time before it gets passed.
“There has never been a better time to get conceal carry legislation on the books in Illinois. I am hoping we can garner enough signatures to get the attention of leaders from the Chicago area to get a vote this spring,” said Bost.
Some counties, most recently Adams, have passed non-binding measures legalizing concealed carry in their counties.
