I'm not one to get people's hopes up over rumors but I've gotten word from several insiders in Springfield that the Anti's are crapping themselves over the latest push for CCW.
From what I'm hearing, straw polls have put a 'Yea' vote in the Senate at over a veto proof majority (36 w/ more potentials) and Senate President Cullerton is debating 'cutting a deal'. It's unknown at present what he's asking for in return. Politics as usual. Gov. Quinn has stated he's 'concerned'.
It's also been made clear the Brady Campaign, ICHV and other gun banners are apoplectic over it and demanding Cullerton stop it by any means necessary.
Illinois Residents who respect their rights need to call Cullerton's offices NOW and (politely) voice their support for Concealed Carry. 217-782-2728/773-883-0770 as well as their state senators and representatives to have their voices heard.
Join the ISRA and IllinoisCarry as well as your local groups. We can get this done folks but not alone.
