Anti-gun forces to hold press conference today in Chicago

As has recently been pointed out here before, the momentum behind defensive handgun carry in Illinois is stronger than it has ever been in the past, with Illinois HB 148, the "Family and Personal Protection Act," having a real chance of passage. That would be a nightmare not only for Illinois anti-gun groups (which were already suffering from dwindling funding), but for national "gun control" groups as well. Illinois, as one of only two states with no provision for legal concealed carry for private citizens (and the only state to ban both open and concealed carry), is considered a "gun control" stronghold (and the Brady Campaign has still felt the need to focus its efforts in the state, largely writing others off). Passage of the Family and Personal Protection Act would, in other words, go a long way toward driving a much-needed oaken stake through the heart of the forcible citizen disarmament lobby, nationwide.
