A lawmaker who helped push through a bill that allows Illinois residents to carry concealed weapons is suggesting the law is too hard on gun owners from other states.

State Rep. Brandon Phelps says the law is “too complicated” when it comes to out-of-state gun owners. The law requires people who have permits from other states to get an Illinois permit as well.

He says Illinois should recognize permits of other states the way states like Wisconsin and Michigan recognize the Illinois permits.
