Don't you think if you knew the family or individual that you would have heard it by word of mouth by now? Second, it's very common for media outlets to not release names of suicides. Let it go.

For starters if I know the family or the individual i would like to send my condolences. Second, my tax dollar paid to scoop up his body so I have every right to know who it is.

Heroin is illegal & he still had it. Making drugs illegal doesn't stop people from getting them. Obviously!!

It's just liberals killing liberals! If they continue we will run out of stupid liberals. Apparently white doctors killing unborn black babies doesn't matter. It only matters if it's a white cop does it. You go Planned Parenthood.

Speaker Madigan schedules concealed carry hearings

The House Judiciary Committee will have public hearings Feb. 19 at the state Capitol and Feb. 22 in Chicago; State Rep. Jil Tracy is a member of the committee

WTAD-AM (AP) Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan is seeking public input on concealed carry of firearms and gun safety at two hearings later this month.

The Chicago Democrat announced Thursday that the Judiciary Committee will have public hearings Feb. 19 at the state Capitol and Feb. 22 in Chicago.

Madigan says the hearings will allow gun-rights advocates, gun-control supporters and police to "offer their views and argue their cases" on the issues.

A federal court rejected the state's concealed-carry ban in December and demanded the Illinois Legislature adopt some form of firearms possession.

Madigan says hearings are important after the court decision and the December school massacre in Connecticut.

Concealed-carry legislation that narrowly failed in 2011 has been re-introduced in the Illinois House.

The Springfield hearing is scheduled for noon Feb. 19 in Room 114 of the Capitol. The Chicago hearing is 10 a.m. Feb. 22 at 10 a.m. in the sixth floor committee room of the Michael A. Bilandic Building.

Available seating for the hearings will be limited, and those who wish to attend will be required to show official state identification and pass through strict security.
