Less Restrictive Concealed Carry Bill Fails to Pass Illinois House


Another attempt to pass concealed carry legislation has failed in the Illinois House… even though a majority of members voted for it.

 

The measure is less restrictive than one that failed a day earlier, and uses the “shall issue” standard that requires the state to issue concealed carry permits to anyone meeting the basic requirements.

 

The vote was 64 to 45 in favor… but the bill needed a supermajority of 71 votes to pass because it would override the ability of home-rule communities like Springfield to create their own, more restrictive rules.
