Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- Anti-Concealed Carry State Representative Ann Williams will be holding a town hall meeting, together with the state senator for her district, Senate President John Cullerton on Wednesday, August 24, 2011 at 6:00 PM.

Williams was one of 52 state representatives who voted against HB148 – the concealed carry bill.

Williams, formerly a staff member in Lisa Madigan's Attorney General office, ran for the Illinois House on a platform including gun control and does not believe that you are responsible for your own self-defense, that is best left up to big government and dicey police response times.

John Cullerton rules the Illinois Senate with an iron hand, refusing to allow pro-gun bills originating in the Illinois Senate even to have committee hearings in the 97th General Assembly, including bills for concealed carry.

The NRA is very good at what it does. Unfortunately, that's lobbying congress and various politicians and not litigating and repealing laws. If you want action in the courts, I'd suggest writing some letters donating to GOA and/or SAF. But that doesn't mean the NRA doesn't do anything, it just means that the courts aren't their strong point.

Illinois needs to grow up as a state and pass a constitutional conceal carry but they also must REPEAL the FOID card law. I will NOT send a dime of support to the NRA until they get serious about REPEALING laws like the Illinois FOID card. I’m tired of their excuses the NRA supported gun control laws like the 68 GCA and the Illinois FOID card after race riots in the mid 1960’s and its time to start the REPEAL process.
