In case you ever wondered if we’re just blowing smoke when we ask you to call…

The Illinois Senate adjourned without acting on Senator Kwame Raoul’s House Bill 183. As I wrote earlier today, we expected a vote on the watered-down concealed-carry measure, as the Senate President had been working the bill quite hard.
Your phone calls and e-mails are working! Let’s keep up the pressure. Encourage your friends and family to politely call other members of the Illinois General Assembly to voice their support for a comprehensive concealed-carry bill.
We will continue to fight on for legislation that enables all Illinois citizens to have the same concealed-carry rights.
Let them know: One State, One Law for carry. Shall Issue, not may issue.
When I called my Senator’s district office, the receptionist kindly took my message; I told her Shall issue, not may issue. She responded: “One State, One Law, right?” She was pleasant about it, but I could tell that she’d gotten some calls from readers of this website.
Keep up the pressure. As of this writing, 3 weeks, 1 day, 3 hours, and 29 minutes to go. The clock is ticking.
