Demmer packs the house for guns talk
Legislation is muddy, at best
ROCHELLE – Gun owners and gun rights supporters packed a town hall meeting Friday to discuss concealed carry legislation with state Rep. Tom Demmer.
Demmer, R-Dixon, explained two pieces of concealed carry legislation, prompted by a federal appeals court ruling that it is unconstitutional to prohibit concealed carry.
House Bill 1155, sponsored by House Speaker Mike Madigan, D-Chicago, would allow for concealed carry but also includes a long list of places where handguns would be banned, such as schools, sports stadiums and government buildings and their adjacent properties and parking lots.
