MADIGAN’S BIPARTISAN GUN BILL SHOT DOWN; SENATOR RAOUL EMERGES WITH ANOTHER

Illinois Review

SPRINGFIELD – House Speaker Mike Madigan-approved concealed carry bill – SB 2193 – was shot down and buried in the Senate Executive Committee Tuesday afternoon. The bill, considered a compromise bill, was considered by many to be the last chance to pass a concealed carry bill before the end of session and/or the Court’s June 9th deadline.

A “shall issue” bill did emerge from the Senate Executive Committee, however, and it is Amendment 4, which will add new fees and more restrictions.

Todd VanderMyde of the National Rifle Association testified in committee that while the NRA was “neutral” on SB 2193, it was “opposed” to Senator Raoul’s amendment.
