About this Article

An Illinois House panel on gun issues opened today with a debate over how pressing the deadline is to pass the state's first concealed carry law. The hearing, chaired by state Rep. Elaine Nekritz, a Northbrook Democrat, is an initial effort to get the debate going on an issue that's expected to be at the forefront for state lawmakers this year.
