I don't know if it was overlooked, or if you chose to leave it off for a reason. But just in case:

 

HB0098: Amends the Criminal Code of 1961, the Unified Code of Corrections, and the County Jail Act. Permits currently employed and retired State correctional officers and county correctional officers to carry their own firearms off duty without being in violation of the unlawful use of weapons and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon statutes if they meet certain training requirements

 

I've also thrown a tool together to help track and manage bills as they're filed: http://il2nd.com/

(and some background and tips about it here: http://illinoiscarry.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=24179&view=findpost&p=241338)

Thanks, Mstrat--will add that one. I'm not currently tracking the bills as they're introduced, and am relying on others to notify me of relevant bills.

I can see it now with this one. Sheriff will have too much say over who gets permit or not. This one could be full of corruption.

 

HB 0112 - FIREARMS-CONCEALED CARRY (defensive firearm carry, administered by sheriff's department)

 

I tend to agree, although the alternative is for the State Police to administer the permit system, and given the ISP's handling of FOIDs, I'm not exactly filled with confidence in that prospect.

Don't fret gentlemen. Bills very seldom finish as they start.

Understood and agreed. You know that the way I see it is that any system whereby We The People are "allowed" to go, hat in hand, to the government and ask for (and pay for) a government-issued permission slip for recognition of our Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right to keep and bear arms is a deeply flawed system. Still, I'm (just barely) realistic enough to know the Constitutional Carry isn't going to happen here anytime soon, so I'll call just about any "Shall Issue" system a dramatic improvement over the current "MUST NOT issue" system.

The full text of the bill is not yet available, but we've been assured it is shall-issue. Burden of proof would be on the sheriff to deny your application.

However, I can't count the number of times this past year, when I was the guest of IllinoisCarry.com at Town Hall Meetings around the state, that the local sheriff stepped in it big-time when talking about support of RTC by mentioning how they should be able to review the applications.

 

This will not be a popularity contest.

Of the 102 sheriffs in IL, I'm told by my local sheriff that only 3-4 are totally against RTC. Sounds like the local constituency needs to get involved and explain to their sheriff that RTC is important to them and will be an issue in the next election if the sheriff doesn't come on board. There is probalbly one that will need to be convinced in the courts, but maybe he too will see the light.

 

For the great majority of counties in IL, having the sheriff involved in the process will not be a problem. You will see that in the final version of the bill when it comes to light.

I don't disagree, my main point was that some of these supporting sheriffs were creating a PR problem in front of people who came to hear about RTC.

HB 0098 says the the CO's off duty firearm has to be registered with the ISP. I don't know if I like that very much. Do cops have to register their off duty weapons?

 

Good point. I wasn't aware that the ISP had any "registration" program for firearms.

 

AB

 

 

I'm assured that this concern will be addressed with the sponsor.

HB0203 - CRIM CD-ONE GUN PER MONTH

Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Changes references in the statute on unlawful sale of firearms from "sell" or "give" to "transfer". Prohibits multiple sales of handguns within a 30-day period. Creates the offense of unlawful acquisition of handguns. Provides exemptions and affirmative defenses. Penalty is a Class A misdemeanor for a first offense and a Class 4 felony for a second or subsequent offense.

 

HB0215 - CRIM CD-WEAPONS-ARMORED CAR

Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Eliminates provision that permits the carrying and possession of certain weapons by persons employed by an armored car company to drive an armored car, while actually engaged in the performance of their duties. Eliminates provision that permits the carrying and possession of certain weapons by guards of armored car companies, while actually engaged in the performance of the duties of their employment or commuting between their homes and places of employment. Effective immediately.

 

 

Does anyone know anything about Rep. Timothy L. Schmitz ( R )? He filed the latter bill. Just curious (especially since he's an R) what the motivation for taking guns away from armored car staff is.

 

And Rep. William D. Burns, how about you only get to use the 1st Amendment one time per month? And you've already said something, so don't speak or write again until Feb. mmkaythx.

Don't know what's up with Schmitz. Not hear of him before, he's been in the House since 1999. Maybe Todd will check in and give us some insight. Or someone from his district? Kane county, Geneva area.
