A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Illinois enacts nation’s final concealed-gun law.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill.(AP)— Illinois became the last state in the nation to allow public possession of concealed guns as lawmakers rushed Tuesday to finalize a proposal ahead of a federal court’s deadline.
Both chambers of the Legislature voted to override changes Gov. Pat Quinn made to the bill they approved more than a month ago. Even some critics of the law argued it was better to approve something rather than risk the courts allowing virtually unregulated concealed weapons in Chicago, which has endured severe gun violence in recent months.
The Senate voted 41-17 in favor of the override Tuesday afternoon after the House voted 77-31, margins that met the three-fifths threshold needed to set aside the amendatory veto. Quinn had used his veto authority to suggest changes such as prohibiting guns in restaurants that serve alcohol and limiting gun-toting citizens to one firearm at a time.

It's about time. Now we need to work on National Constitutional Carry.

Constitutional Carry is a situation within a jurisdiction in which the carrying of concealed firearms is generally not restricted by the law. When a state or other jurisdiction has adopted Constitutional Carry, it is legal for law-abiding citizens to carry a handgun, firearm, or other weapon concealed with or without an applicable permit or license.

Currently Georgia issues concealed carry weapons permits on a shall-issue basis and open carry is only legal with a permit.

Glad to see Illinois come around.

However, I have no problem with Georgia's "shall issue" (subject to a background check) law. I would like to see that in all states.

However, mandatory training with your firearm, as in Florida, is a bunch of crap.

I have found that it is difficult to over train with whatever weapon you will be using.

It is possible to develop bad habits if you practice without a good trainer.

I learned good shooting habits from my father as a boy. I never shot less than expert the whole time I was in the Navy.

Agree, but a $300.00 mandated course a prerequisite to a concealed carry permit is an impedimment to the exercise of 2nd Amendment rights.

Ditto on shooting expert in the Navy.

"impedimment", oh Spell-Check Boy? You're always blaming your typos on lack of control of your hands. Are you sure someone like you should have access to firearms at all?

16 hours of firearms safety is also too much. Like voter ID, it impedes the ability to exercise a right.
