The Illinois State Rifle Association has sent out an alert warning about the plans of House Speaker Michael Madigan concerning concealed carry. It appears that he will try to force through his own CCW bill that will be the nation's most restrictive carry law this coming week.
Mike Madigan is ticked off...
Why is Mike Madigan so ticked off? Quite simply, hes ticked off because the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has told him plainly that the legislature must bow to constitutional authority not to the whims of Mike Madigan. And we all know what a control freak Mike Madigan is.
No, Mike Madigan is no longer in control of the concealed carry debate. The courts have said once and for all that Illinois will join 49 other states in allowing citizens to carry defensive firearms.
The court has really ticked Madigan off...
Mike Madigan is so ticked off that he plans to introduce his own version of a concealed carry bill early next week. Of course, under Madigans carry bill, the only people who would be allowed to carry would be... um... nobody.
Although the details of Madigans concealed carry bill (HB1155) have not yet been released, those close to Madigan are saying that it will be the most restrictive concealed carry bill in the nation.
One insider termed Madigans proposal, ...the closest thing to no-carry at all.
