Illinois Lawmaker Wants To Change Concealed Carry Rules For Out Of Staters

An Illinois lawmaker who supported a bill that allows Illinois residents to carry concealed weapons is saying that the new law is too hard on gun owners from other states.

State Representative Brandon Phelps (D-Harrisburg) says the law is "too complicated'' when it comes to out-of-state gun owners.

The law requires people who have permits from other states to get an Illinois permit as well.

He says Illinois should follow the lead of many other states that have reciprocity agreements that allow gun owners with permits from other states to carry the weapons in the states they are visiting.
