    State Congressman Aaron Schock from Peoria has introduced House SB 4544 to allow for Illinois citizens to carry concealed firearms. Please call or write your rep. to support the bill and give some reasons why. Thanks, Dave P

    If SB 4544 passes would the bill over ride the gun grabbing laws of Cook county?

    No chance that Madigan will call this bill to a vote. A shame that 48 other states give good citizens the means to defend themselves, but not here in Illinois.

    The right to carry in Illinois has as much chance of passing as it does in Wisconsin. Illinois is run by Chicago and Wisconsin is run by the Milwaukee area and Madison. Governors Blodgovich and Doyle are true liberals and will veto anything pertaining to firearms.

    One side or the other will eventually bend (though probably not in our lifetime), I hope its the Libs rather than the gun owners of the State ... WPT ... (YAC) ... Former Illinois resident ...

    "ILLINOIS: Gun Rights Under Assault in Cook County!"

    "Cook County is currently considering two anti-gun proposals that must be defeated! First, the Safe Streets/Weapons Registration Ordinance requires the registration of all firearms and firearm owners in the county. As written, it is an outright gun ban and prohibits the transport of a firearm in your vehicle unless the firearm is "broken down in a nonfunctioning state." The other proposed ordinance would amend the county's "Deadly Weapon Dealers Ordinance" to completely ban all gun shows within the county, and prohibits federally licensed dealers from operating within 10 miles one another. Please contact the Cook County Board of Commissioners today and respectfully urge them to oppose these ordinances."
