Stop Concealed Carry of Guns in Illinois

To be delivered to The Illinois State House, The Illinois State Senate, and Governor Pat Quinn

Petition Statement

We, the undersigned, oppose any 'Concealed Carry' legislation in Illinois that would allow people to carry concealed weapons in public, on their persons, in cars, buses, and trains, in houses of worship, schools, libraries, stores, shopping malls, movie theaters, restaurants, offices, and businesses, or anywhere other than in their own homes.
There are currently 7,727 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Illinois is the only state that does not allow people to carry concealed weapons. The NRA and other gun-industry groups are lobbying the Illinois legislature to pass a concealed carry bill. Concealed carry would bring more guns into public places and make it much more difficult for police to get guns off the streets. Sign the petition and tell the Illinois legislature that we do not want concealed carry in Illinois.
