Conceal Carry Law Needs Tweaking According to one Lawmaker

Nobody in Illinois is legally concealing and carrying yet, and there’s an attempt to change one of the rules.

State Sen. Don Harmon (D-Oak Park) wants to change the concealed-carry law that now requires businesses and other public places that don’t want guns to post a sign.

“The concealed carry law the General Assembly passed requires businesses that don’t guns on the premises be required to post a sign that says ‘No guns allowed.’ ”  says Harmon. “That seems counter-intuitive to me. If you are running a business that welcomes guns you should probably display a sign that says you welcome guns.”

Lawmakers may revisit some suggested changes to the law when they return for the Spring Session.
