Wow. That's big.
Doesnt mean they'll issue any....to anyone other that their limo drivers.
:gun10: Watch out bad guys, party's over!
No, this is significant. Even the family members I have that live in Illinois are excited by this (just called them.) Especially in the non-Chicago parts, this is going to free up a lot of people if they vote the bill into law.
It's not law yet?
Nope. This is just the first stage.
It was a requirement. It's not like they just decided to do this because they pulled their collective heads out of each others asses. It was a REQUIREMENT of the lawsuit that settled last year. They could either pass a bill or pay the 2nd Amendment foundation another chunk of change.
Is it MAY-issue (like CA) or SHALL-issue (like Oregon)? In California, almost nobody is allowed to carry unless they are a) politically connected, or b) live in a county in the middle of nowhere with a 2A-minded sheriff.
Yes, they had to do something - but what they're doing is further than I think most expected them to go.
It is shall issue with a bunch of class BS attached.
It also looks like there is an objection appeal process they talk about in this article.

I hope CA turn shal issue state i am tired of visit my parents while carrying like criminals
i guess too many facts got out and now they cant contain them anymore.
and the fight has begun...you do know Gov Quinn is part of the Chicago machine. Question is, will he sign it? veto it? or sit on it? Noise is, he will veto it and be over-ridden, or he may sit on it. To sit on it will open a whole new can of worms. I am not sure what his masters will tell him to do.
It is a shall issue, it does have pre-emption, Chicago will have no say...it does have a method to appeal a denial
But watching the video clip there is no carry on mass transit.
Baby steps. Get something signed, then challenge provisions of restriction. Chip away at the boulder on this one.
To whomever made the comment about Cali; Cali is a lost state. Always will be.
HUGE negative. The savages that inhabit big city mass transit make it one of the most dangerous places to be
Agreed. I have lived in Chicago before and I didn't have a car so I had to ride the bus and the "L". I remember taking the orange line from Midway Airport a few times and although I didn't get mugged, I felt very unsafe riding at night.
