IL CCW..Round ∞ +1

Chicago is running scared in the countdown to Constitutional Carry in Illinois. And they're doing it in the traditional way of politicians, attaching it to a completely unrelated bill in order to try and sneak/jam it through the legislature.

HB 0183:
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Electronic Fund Transfer Act. Removes the requirement for a person operating a terminal to disclose surcharges for usage of the terminal by a sign on the terminal. Effective immediately.
Oh but wait, there's more:
Amendment 1:
AMENDMENT NO. ______. Amend House Bill 183 by replacing
everything after the enacting clause with the following:

followed by dozens upon dozens of pages of CCW legaleze including a carve-out for Chicago. Again.

Do you think this will pass? Or will Illinois finally get Constitutional Carry.

I don't think it will pass. The NRA, ISRA, et al are pretty dedicated to not allowing a Chicago carve-out but who knows what will happen. They're going to go into full sh!t spewing mode soon if they don't get a stay from SCOTUS.

I hope you guys finally get CC. I want to giggle with joy as crime starts to rapidly drop in Chicago.

FOID-carry, and no state preemption on locally created restricted places/signage laws as I understand it.

But that's better than allowing a Chicago carve out. A couple expensive local court wins and most will fall in line.
