Illinois --(  Last Friday, the U.S. 7th Circuit of Appeals let stand their ruling in the case of Moore/Shepard vs Madigan that the ban on the Right to Carry in Illinois is unconstitutional.

In an attempt to stonewall the passage of a good carry law, HB0997 and other good gun bills, have been sidelined in a House sub-committee.

The Speaker of the House plans to use a shell bill - an empty bill with no text - and turn it into a nightmarish Chicago style carry bill and push it through the House on Tuesday.

We suspect it will be HB1155 but it could any number of shell bills.

The IllinoisCarry forum was started in April 2004. The idea was that Illinois needed a central location to communicate ideas and information regarding 2nd Amendment issues in Illinois. There are many organizations in Illinois working to protect our 2nd Amendment Rights. Working with these groups IllinoisCarry has become the central location for information and Action Alerts. IllinoisCarry will not endorse political candidates. We simply provide information so voters can make informed decisions. Our goal is to join the other 48 states that allow their citizens to carry concealed firearms. We encourage you to register on our forum and join the fight for your 2nd Amendment Rights in Illinois.

      This is what you get from one party rule, how many of you people who want a carry bill passed voted democratic??

    2. How can you legally pass a bill with no text? That sounds more corrupt than anything.

      Mike Madigan is a filthy waste of skin and his daughter is not much better. I’m so glad i got out of
      Illinois, and moved to SWC Florida. We carry guns here and we do not live in constant fear.

      Watch out for Rahm Emanuel & his moneyed NY buddy Michael Bloomberg. They are not above buying this out. Bloomberg has already shown his disdain for the people of Illinois by buying the 2nd congressional district election for Robyn Kelly. Madigan is cut from the same cloth. These guys will not relinquish power easily. Your children’s lives mean nothing to these scum.
