We have good news and bad news regarding HB148, the
2011 Concealed Carry Bill.
The good news is that this year’s concealed carry
bill enjoys broad bi-partisan support from around
the state. The reason for this success is that the
bill has been carefully crafted to address some
legislators’ concerns about public safety while, at
the same time, ensuring that the provisions of the
bill will allow for citizens to protect themselves
and their families from dangerous criminals. This
bill has been so fine-tuned that there is absolutely
no practical reason for anyone to oppose HB148.
The bad news is that the
Chicago Gun Grabbing Machine has switched into
overdrive in its efforts to kill off H148 so that
you and your family remain defenseless against
muggers, murderers, robbers and rapists. The gun
control movement is using threats, intimidation and
outright lies in its attempt to coerce members of
the House of Representatives to vote against HB148.
You are HB148’s last line of
defense – it is time for you to take action to
ensure that HB148 has a fighting chance of passage.
