Rumors are flying all over that ILL passed conceal carry.  Anyone heard anything official?

Have not heard anything, but the first line of the article linked in your second post says we’d become the 49th state to pass conceal carry.  That would have been true if Wisconsin had not beat us to it.  Now, as I understand it, we’d be number 50.  So, that suggests that the article is a old.

I hope there’s something to the rumor, though.

  One day it is my hope that common sense will prevail… Laws only take guns from LAW ABIDING people. The criminals do NOT have them legally in the majority of cases.  It amazes me that the laws of this state have made it illegal for a law abiding citizens to defnd himself or family from thugs unless he is at home…

I have not followed this real closely but have kept an eye on it from time to time.  Looks to me like until we somehow make Chicago or Cook County its own state Illinois is not likely to have (legal) concealed carry.  I totally agree that laws like this - or the lack of - only hamper those who would be responsible firearm owners.  The bad guys have been concealed carrying for a long time and will continue to whether it is legal or illegal.

Why isn’t (IGOLD/conceal carry) a main topic on this site?  This should be a priority for everyone here.

I actually just heard about IGOLD for the first time the other day.  Probably a lot of people don’t know what it is.
