And you Mr. WarSnivel. DO realize that the QSD and the City are both public institutions subject to voter control and funding by taxpayers. Right?

School Board only spends $66,000,000 if the referendum doesn't pass. $105,000,000 if it does pass. That's not close to the same thing.

I agree the IHSA should be open and transparent but to hold a hearing on the group in question and they aren't allowed to express their side of story seems heavy handed and one sided. I hate saying this but pass a law making the IHSA subject to the Open Records law and then the government should butt out.

Concealed carry of weapons on private property currently not allowed without permission

From myfoxchicago.com:

As Illinois gets ready to enact its new concealed carry law, Sen. Don Harmon of the 39th district is proposing that signs be put up that say businesses do allow guns inside.

Illinois Senate Bill 2669 is sponsored by the Democratic senator from Oak Park. Harmon said the legislation would amend the Firearm Concealed Carry Act, which currently states a person is not allowed to carry a concealed weapon onto private property without permission from the property owner.

The proposal would allow business owners to post clear signs at building entrances and other places on the premises indicating they do allow concealed firearms.

Nicole, a local representative of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, said she supports State Sen. Harmon's proposal.

She has found that in her neighborhood, some business owners that do not want guns in their stores are hesitant to post signs indicating firearms are not welcome. Nicole said the Illinois chapter of her organization believes they should have a right to choose, and that they should not feel showing their desire would be detrimental to business.

Nicole said she sees signs indicating gun-free zones are currently posted at her child's pre-school, and finds them to be a frightening reminder of the tragic mass-shooting of young children in Newtown, Conn. in 2012.

She told FOX 32 news that Senate Bill 2669 would render gun-free zone signs redundant and unnecessary at places like her child's school. She also said local businesses would benefit from posting positive signs as opposed to negative ones.
