Durbin, is a tired traitor to his constituents. Here is a list of the tears one should shed for Real Americans. NO TEARS FOR REAL AMERICANS Where are you tears for the downtrodden, abused, mourning Real Americans? None, we see. Why? Because that wouldn't fit the liberal narrative. The facts argue for true and real concern for Real Americans. What facts? 1. They have lost their…

Speaker Madigan schedules concealed carry hearings

1 year, 6 months ago by Bob Gough

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.
