Proponents see growing support in for concealed carry
Votes Wednesday on two proposals to impose new gun restrictions in Illinois may point to increasing support for concealed carry in the General Assembly.

I still feel very good about it, said Rep. Brandon Phelps, D-Harrisburg, sponsor of a House concealed carry bill. Weve been asked by some Cook County legislators about maybe making some deals.

I really believe were close to 70 (votes). Were getting there all the time.

Phelps said he hopes to call his measure for a vote in the coming weeks. Because a concealed carry proposal would override municipalities home-rule authority, it will take 71 votes to pass the House, as opposed to a simple majority of 60 votes.

One step closer then add to that WI and the mid-west will be good to go.

1. What do the people think? Or do only "proponents" count?

In the vast majority of this nation, a politicians FIRST vote for gun control, is among their last votes...

The people, have spoken loud and clear.. And they have spoken REPEATEDLY since 1994.

5. So no, you have no link to data proving your claim. Thanks.
The proponents have spoken and that's all that matters. People be damned, literally.

8. Proponents aren't people?
I see post after post of OPPONANTS of concealed carry, on campus, in restaurants, in public. Who's opinion counts more.
