Read on Breitbart this PM that the Illinois Legislature just passed a CHL bill and that it is on it's way to the Governor. Upside is that the State Police issue the permit, Chicago is pre-empted and it is a Shall Issue statute. The down side is that Chicago gets to keep its "Assault Weapons" ban.

Way to go Illinois!!! :thumb:

Hawaii has a CCW too. No one will EVER get one though. According to an old article I read by Massad Ayoob, iirc, that only the governor and the civilian armorer of the HPD have ever been issued one. So getting CCW laws is only half the battle.

The difference is Hawaii is May Issue not Shall Issue.

Good for Illinois and hope this gets implemented quickly.

The preemption included in this bill, is a muchly overlooked, huge kick in the pants for gun control proponents in Illinois too! Way to go Illinois! :thumb:

Sorry guys. No reciprocity. You can got one if your from out of state for a measly $300. The Illinois State Police has 180 to implement this law. It'll be a while unfortunately. But I'm as happy as pig in slop that we got a shall issue bill with complete preemption for handguns. This was a HUGE win for Illinois.

Are you saying IL will not recognize any other CCL? Are you also saying IL will issue a non resident CCL to anyone who applies? If this latter statement is true, then this gun bill sounds a lot like a revenue producing law also.

I want to see the reciprocity listing. I'm sure there will be none.
No reciprocity with MO neighbor to the west would make this a big disappointment to me. I visit SCCA members in a shared net lease shop in East St. Louis and hate gunning down before going into the mouth of the beast ( the rental warehouse is great but the location - ARG!).

Fingers crossed but not holding my breath.

I look hard at IL competition events ( again in the greater metro circle) for the same reasons.

I'm pulling for my brothers and sisters in IL but hope strongly that some reasonable attachments come along with any progress made!!

Message from the Illinois State Rifle Assoc today:

ISRA Thursday Bulletin
6/6/2013

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE
As you know last Friday, after years of work the Illinois House and Senate had passed HB0183 with an overwhelming vote. It is the first concealed carry bill to ever pass the Illinois General Assembly. The votes in both Houses surpassed the Super Majority requirement by a wide margin. Even though the bill had passed both houses the June 8th date still existed. Tuesday, Attorney General Lisa Madigan filed and received a 30 day extension on the June 8th date. Now we are at a July 8th date.

The Governor received HB0183 today. There are four things that can happen.
1. The Governor can sign the bill.

2. The Governor can take no action and in 60 days the bill becomes law but that would push us passed the July 8th day. It is conceivable the court could grant another extension.

3. The Governor could veto the bill.
4. The Governor could use an Amendatory Veto (AV). Number 3 and 4 would mean it would be October 22nd before an override of the Governor's veto could happen.

There are a variety of things that can happen in the coming days and months. What ever happens I assure you the ISRA will do all it can on your behalf. I'm sure we will have many alerts before this is all over so please keep checking your emails.

I told everyone we are going to have our resolve tested and tested again. We will never quit fighting and we will never give up. The Second Amendment is here to stay in Illinois.

Thanks for being a member.
Richard Pearson
ISRA Executive Director

Here's the Governor's response to my urging him to sign the bill quickly that the majority of Illinoisans approve.

Thank you for contacting my office with your concerns about concealed carry in Illinois. Your message has been reviewed by my staff. I value your feedback and appreciate the insight you have shared with me. Each day, as I make decisions, I take your opinion, and those of others who write and call my office, into careful consideration.

As Governor, it is always helpful to hear from residents about the issues concerning our state. Throughout my time in office, I have admired people like you who take time to provide ideas, ask questions and offer constructive criticisms. With your continued participation in our democracy, we can make the will of the people the law of the land.

Thank you again for expressing your interest in concealed carry. Please feel free to contact me in the future. My office phone numbers are (217) 782-0244 and (312) 814-2121. You can also stay updated on state programs and services by subscribing to my E-Newsletter by clicking here.

This is great news for the long suffering gunowners in Illinois! I am very happy for them
and I bet the Police and Sherrifs Departments are going to be bursting at the seams with
Concealed Carry Permit applications once this officially becomes law. The only thing I do
not like is the $ 300.00 out of state residents have to pay to be able to carry with a
Concealed Carry Permit from another state, but this is better than not being able to carry
at all. Congratulations to all of those who fought to make this law a reality!
