Downers Grove, IL Preemptively Bans Firearms in Library

Even before concealed carry [hopefully] passes in Illinois, Downers Grove library officials have passed an ordinance to ban firearms in the library and library-owned property.

In response to a bill making its way through the state Legislature that would allow Illinoisans to carry concealed weapons, the Downers Grove Public Library Board of Trustees banned firearms from the library’s premises.

“It’s a simple statement that firearms are not permitted,” said Library Director Christopher Bowen. “We’ve been watching Illinois House Bill 148. It looks like it has a lot of support and may pass this year.”

oh and on a side note. EIU (Eastern Illinois University) is supporting HB148… So much for the all universities in Illinois dont want this…


The Illinois communist party shut dow RTC by 3 votes. Gov. Quinn and Lisa Madigan are beaming like proud parents tonight!! Truth is, Illinois will NEVER have RTC. Too many Democrats. Even if by some fluke there ever was a Republican majority it would be repealed the minute Dems fraudulently stole power again. Truthfully I don’t care if it ever passes here. Let the criminals have this state, Any populace stupid enough to keep voting in people like Rep. Munoz and his cronies deserve to be at the mercy of armed criminals. As for me and mine we are leaving this cesspool and taking our tax dollars to Missouri.
