On July 9, 2013, Illinois law changed to allow the concealed carry of loaded handguns. Now groups like the NRA could be privately lobbying Illinois legislators to pass Florida-style “Stand Your Ground” laws. [contact-form-7 id=”210″ title=”Stand Your Ground – Survey”]
Sen. Don Harmon of the 39th district is proposing the signs be put up that say businesses do allow guns inside.
The recently passed law allowing the carry of loaded, concealed handguns places a burden on businesses by requiring them to post a sign indicating that loaded, concealed handguns are not allowed on their premises. [contact-form-7 id=”185″ title=”Survey Response”]
GPAC would like to congratulate Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and all of the award winners today at the Lincoln Awards Luncheon: Tom Dart, Alex Kotlowitz, Kwame Raoul and the Joyce Foundation. Thank you for your efforts this past year working to prevent the devastation caused by firearms to our families and communities.
Tell Illinois Legislators you and your family want to shop, dine, bank, and go to the movies – gun free! Add your name to support requiring businesses to post a sign if they allow loaded, concealed handguns on their premises. [contact-form-7 id=”169″ title=”Petition – Blog Page”]
