Illinois Two-fer

According to NRA lobbyist Todd Vandermyde, Quinn, the Governor of Illinois signed both HB-3714 and HB-182 into law today.

HB-3714 retracts the requirement for minor, non-violent misdemeanors to be action for removal of firearms while on probation.

HB-182 decriminalizes the use of a defensive firearm in a location where you have been invited.

While minor in most states, these are both significant steps in Illinois.

The longest journey begins with the first step. Maybe in a few years we will see concealed carry in IL.
