Nine Illinois Counties vote overwhelmingly to support legalizing concealed handguns
Residents in nine mostly rural counties have sent a message to Illinois lawmakers: Legalize the right to carry concealed weapons.
Measures supporting concealed carry passed overwhelmingly in all nine counties where they were on Tuesday's ballot — Adams, Bond, Henry, McDonough, Mercer, Rock Island, Schuyler, Stephenson and Warren.
The votes were non-binding because local law cannot override state law. But advocates say they hope to build pressure on lawmakers to support concealed carry. . . .If anyone knows the exact percentages of the votes, I would appreciate it. I looked on line briefly, but I couldn't find anything.
