About this Article

Many individual suburbs would get the opportunity to decide where people could carry concealed guns under a plan approved by a Senate committee today. The proposal does not limit the kind of restrictions suburbs could impose, but they couldn't ban concealed carry completely. "If you get a community that is very restrictive it could trample on someone's second amendment rights," said Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont.
