    WSILTV- SPRINGFIELD -- Debate over concealed carry of guns in Illinois erupted on the floor of the general assembly in Springfield Wednesday, and Representative Mike Bost of Murphysboro was right in the middle of it. The debate was over a concealed carry bill and amendment that would include the words "may issue" a concealed carry permit instead of "shall issue." Some house members, including Bost, think that little change in words would be a huge change in meaning. "You bring a whole bill that has questions whether it is even constitutional," said Bost. Republican Representative Mike Bost took issue with granting local police the discretion to allow concealed guns. "This is not the bill everybody has talked on, everybody wants to see out here," said Bost. "It is a ploy." Bost and others believed that wording would severely limit access to concealed carry permits. However, when Democrat Representative Scott Drury of Highwood got up, the argument became even more heated. "So why don't we stop all the nonsense about what's constitutional and what's not constitutional...," said Drury. "...This nonsense and two-facedness from the other side of the aisle. It was a statement that Bost was not going to take. The outburst prompted the representative sitting in as Speaker to order Bost to wait his turn. When Bost sat down, Drury continued. "Thank you, so here's my point, members," said Drury. "We don't want someone like that carrying a concealed weapon." That remark prompted boos and shouts from Bost and his allies on the house floor. The measure failed. Later, Bost said he should have waited to be recognized. "I apologized to the person in the speaker chair, as to him personally, and the body," said Bost. However, he's not sorry for why he got upset "This has nothing to do with Republicans or Democrats," said Bost. "It has to do with those of us that understand the Second Amendment and those that are scared to death of it." Drury was also reprimanded by the speaker, and he did also later apologize. Bost says he's hoping to see the concealed carry legislation authored by Representative Brandon Phelps of Harrisburg brought to the house floor on Thursday. The deadline for the state to approve a law is June 9th, after a federal court ruled Illinois' ban on concealed carry of guns is unconstitutional.

    Illinois state Rep. Mike Bost (R-Murphysboro) launched into a fiery tirade on the Illinois House floor after deceitful Democratic lawmakers attempted to sneak in yet another significant floor amendment to a proposed concealed carry bill.
    The incident actually occurred on April 17, but was only lightly covered.

    The House was debating the “may issue” proposal in regards to the state’s forthcoming concealed carry law when Bost finally lost his cool. The proposal would only authorize sheriffs to decide whether a citizen has a legitimate reason to carry a gun (as in other 'may issue' states).

    The “shall issue” concealed carry measure failed in the House later that day, getting 64 of the 71 needed votes.

    There should never be a doubt in your mind that the antis will always try to make it " may " instead of " shall " issue.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.

  5. Believe me I've been dealing with this for a long long time. Lisa Madigan filed an application for extension to file petition for writ of certiorari. Well, she will on May 13th. Her deadline is the 23rd. The app leaked. Its on somewhere. Michael Madigan says he's gonna allow a shall issue w/ preemption bill to pass in a quid pro quo thing to do with the FY14 budget. Yes he is the Speaker of the House. His daughter is the Attorney General. She's talking of running for Governor as well. If she files cert petition, she can kiss the downstate dem vote bye bye. If Moore is upheld by SCOTUS she can kiss the upstate vote goodbye and Bloomberg will make it his life's work to destroy her. I dunno this is just so ****ed up. The Illonois State Rifle Association has taken a no BS stance on may issue. Automatic "F" rating for anyone who votes for it regardless of past voting record.
