Illinois House Creates Task Force to Explore Possibility of Right-to-Carry Law!

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

During the General Assembly’s veto session on November 9, the Illinois House of Representatives passed House Resolution 550, which creates the Firearm Public Awareness Task Force.

The purpose of this task force is to explore the possibility of a Right-to-Carry law in Illinois.  HR 550 stipulates that the NRA will be represented on the task force. Through this position, we will continue to educate the Illinois legislature on the importance of Right-to-Carry.  It is time for the Land of Lincoln to join the rest of the nation in allowing law-abiding gun owners to carry a firearm for personal protection when away from home.

As this task force meets we will keep you apprised of ways in which you can help promote Right-to-Carry in Illinois.
