Illinois Works On Concealed Carry Compromise

Assembly discussing concealed carry
Assembly discussing concealed carry

A measure that would allow Illinois residents to carry concealed firearms is heading to the House floor after lawmakers approved it in committee on Thursday.

The legislation prohibits concealed-carry in many public places, like public transit, sports arenas, schools, and street festivals.

Some of these have been sticking points for gun-rights advocates, who would prefer universal carry.

Concealed carry applicants would pay $150 for a permit.

The legislation would also eliminate differing local gun laws in favor of a uniformed state law which would also mean the end of bans on assault weapons, like the one in Cook County.
