2. The next election cycle will make the difference
Even some of the hard core Chicago reps are changing their tune on concealed carry. With Daley not only gone, but being exposed for the financial fraud he was, almost on a daily basis, his "rules" are fading fast.

Here's a clip of Cliff Kelley, former alderman and a major voice on WVON in the Chicago African American community at a recent meeting on the South Side. This is a sharp 180 from the position Cliff used to have.

When Daley was running things you would have never heard anything like this from Chicago reps.

All we need are 6 more votes for both CCW and pre-emption in Illinois.

I'm hoping more Dems change their vote, or we're going to lose even more seats, including the Governor's office next time around. Between the 67% tax hike, property taxes going up 30%, closing police and fire stations in Cook County and the shift in opinions on CCW there's a lot of unrest with the status quo.
