I heard the CCW vote was today (is that right?). I'm anxious to hear how it turned out. I live right next to Illinois, and sometimes go across the line, so I'm anxious to hear the news.

It comes up all the time. It will never pass because only a small subculture of the Illinois shooters support it.

I know, and it's upsetting even on this side of the river, but I guess there's always that tiny glimmer of hope for me.

I guess there is a little glimer of hope that one day it will accidently pass.

this one here?

It seems that Illinois HB1304 (http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/billstatus.asp?DocNum=1304&GAID=9&GA=95&DocTypeID=HB&LegID=30069&SessionID=51 )

Creates the Family and Personal Protection Act. Establishes statewide uniform standards for the issuance of permits to carry concealed firearms in this State. Vests in the Department of State Police the authority to issue concealed firearms permits to qualified applicants. Requires an applicant to complete a training course in handgun use, safety, and marksmanship. Also requires instruction in the law relating to firearm use. Creates the Citizen Safety and Self-Defense Trust Fund administered by the Department. The moneys in the Fund shall be used to administer the Act. Establishes restrictions on carrying concealed firearms. Establishes standards for the training course and for certifying instructors. Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that the Family and Personal Protection Act supersedes an ordinance of a unit of local government inconsistent with that Act. Prohibits a home rule unit from regulating the issuance of permits to carry concealed firearms. Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Exempts, from an unlawful use of weapons and aggravated unlawful use of weapons violation, persons who carry or possess firearms in accordance with the Family and Personal Protection Act. Effective immediately.

is on the table and up for a vote, possibly TODAY. i would urge fellow Illinoisans to call http://www.ilga.gov/house/default.asp their reps (or all of them) and voice their support.

That is one. The other puts it the Sheriff to issue CC.
