In the House yesterday, Amend 1 to HB831 was offered by Representative Cassidy as her hope for a carry bill in Illinois. With the loss on a vote of 31/76/6 she was informed that may issue carry is not to Illinois' taste.

 

Amend 2 to HB1711 was adopted and the bill moved to third reading, making us 2 steps closer to allowing only law enforcement to be conservators of the peace.

 

 

 

The big news today, of course, is the expectation of a House vote on HB997 Concealed Carry - Firearms.

 

In an effort to make things less confusing today I've removed bills from the list that seem unlikely to see action. I can add them quickly back to the list if the need arises.

 

I'll ask now that all participants stay focused on our task today. Hopefully reminders will not be necessary.

On that same note, given that it might get crazy today, I would humbly second and or third the request to keep this thread clear and concise for those of us who might be stuck in meetings or other things, and can't watch or listen to the House. Updates, reps giving testimony, etc. would be an ideal "flow" of information.

I'd prefer to keep my emotionally driven reactions/opinions in the "vote expected today" thread and leave this one for actual updates ... if anyone wants to see my flipping out I'll be in that thread. Mauserme, Ty ... do work, gentlemen!

Rumor has it there lurks a man with a magic wand. My guess is if this thread strays too far today some things might go poof.

 

That's what I've heard, anyway. Just sayin' ...

I just called all twenty and a few are sent directly to voice mail (flowers gee what a surprise)

 

It is well worth the 20 or so minutes it took me as compared to the men and women that have lost blood and bounty to give us this right to fight for.

 

So are you all willing to go the extra mile and call all twenty? Did you make it to IGOLD?

 

I asked the women working the phones how busy the phones were this morning. Many told me that it is in fits and starts, but not bad. That's not great for us. I only got one busy signal when calling. That's the only way I can tell if the lines are overcapacity or not.

 

Let show them that we are not a one trick pony. We can do more than IGOLD's one day a year.

Report from Capitol Fax this morning below. Please note: This is posted as speculation and we don't know what's true or not true.

 

Phelps said he has worked compromise into his legislation, which was being drafted late tonight. Under his previous proposal, the state police would issue concealed carry licenses, but sheriffs could contest applications. Phelps said he also plans to give that option to Chicago city police. Phelps said he also plans to increase the fee for licenses from the $25 fee in his first iteration of the plan to $100 and call for $30 from each license to go to a special fund dedicated to repairing the state’s troubled FOID card system and ensuring that county mental health records are reported to the state police. He said training requirements would also be increased from four hours in the original bill to 10 hours and would include a live ammunition test. “We’re offering a lot of things,” he said. “This version of what we’re going to try to run tomorrow is a combination of about four bills that we have had in the time that I have been here.”

If this is accurate...

 

Not a fan of the training requirements being 10 hours AND live fire.

 

Guess I can live with the $100. Not as high as I thought it may go, but more than I was hoping.

 

If the CPD has the same option as the sheriff, Chicago still has SHALL issue, right?

 

Does anyone know if the part about those with out of state permits being allowed to carry in IL as residents for 1 year is still included?
