Illinois has always been known to have the toughest gun laws, and has been considered to be an “Anti Gun” state for decades.
Illinois is the only state in America that doesn’t allow citizens to carry concealed weapons; but that may change.
Illinois house speaker Mike Madigan plans to open house debate on concealed-carry Tuesday.
Test votes could be taken on issues like concealed-carry in churches, casinos, sports stadiums, on public transit and even in day-care centers.
It’s a departure for Madigan, who normally prefers to cut deals privately, then present finished legislation to the House.
