According to a report by the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers, Illinois politicians are considering amendments to the state's new concealed carry legislation, even though the first concealed carry permits haven't been issued.
State Rep. Scott Drury, a Highwood Democrat, said he thinks the law should be changed. He wants to change what he says is ambiguity in the current statute to make sure concealed weapons aren't brought into businesses where there's gambling or alcohol.
"The changes that I'm making are just technical changes to clarify the law where I think there's vague language," he said.
Illinois was the last state to "allow" conceal carry, and many second amendment advocates believe the law passed by the General Assembly last year is likely to end up in court and be found unconstitutional.
