Illinois Convenes Firearms Working Group

(KTVI) – Illinois lawmakers are getting the chance to learn more about differing perspectives on gun ownership as they prepare to pass a concealed carry law.  Lt. Governor Shelia Simon introduced members of the firearms working group Tuesday in Springfield.

Simon says about a dozen newly elected lawmakers in the general assembly wanted to join the group, including members from up and downstate.

The group’s goal is to better understand other viewpoints.
