TAZEWELL BECOMES THIRD ILLINOIS COUNTY TO PERMIT RIGHT-TO-CARRY
“A citizen who wishes to exercise their Second Amendment right to carry a firearm outside of the home for self-defense should not be placed in the situation where they fear prosecution if they exercise a Constitutional Right,” the prosecutor said in a news release.
A federal court ruling directed the state to enact a right-to-carry law by June 9th. Since then the US 7th District Court of Appeals granted Governor Quinn an additional 30 days to review consensus right to carry legislation the Illinois General Assembly passed to his desk hours before the May 31st adjournment.
