Illinois carry bill in the works

State Representative Pat Verschoore, (IL) D-Milan is working on the bill in Illinois
"This law is tight enough, that we've had the FOID card for years where you have to have a FOID card to even get a gun and that's even a hard situation to do," said Verschoore.

He said sheriff's departments would be in charge of issuing permits based on a strict set of rules, including an age limit of 21 and older, with no criminal record and a training course to show proficiency with a gun.
I wouldn't get my hopes up for my neighbors to the east, but it's a step in the right direction.

I will be shocked if it passes; and I will also be in line to obtain a permit. Not holding my breath, though.

If Chicago and Milwaukee would just join up and make their own state the rest of Wisconsin and Illinois would do just fine without them.

I don't look for anything to come of this but at least one or two legislators are trying. Quixotic as it is.
