I missed that part! Yep then block everything until you get Constitutional carry! That's the best thing you can have! Then you don't have to pay for training, permits and OC is allowed! I always thought it was funny IL didn't even follow there own State Constitution as far as guns!
Actually, they do. The IL State Constitution says:
"SECTION 22. RIGHT TO ARMS
Subject only to the police power, the right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

The state does have the police power, and therefore the laws they passed are the "subject only to police power" that's mentioned. Very sad, but still within the rights as listed in the state constitution.
