That is, unless they can get shall issue with preemption of local laws.
Shall Issue with Preemption is actually already on the table, and very nearly passed 19 months ago. Due to the preemption, it has to have a super-majority to pass (71 votes) and the vote was called off with 65 "Yay" votes (and would have gotten 68). Since it was a few short, it was put on hold, but it's still waiting in the wings. (This is Illinois HB0148 if you care to read it all)
