Pekin, IL… Rep. Mike Unes (R-East Peoria), the Chief Co-Sponsor of Illinois’ Concealed Carry Bill (HB 148) and Co-Chairman of the Illinois Firearm Awareness Task Force released the following statement today following the federal appeals court ruling striking down Illinois Concealed Carry Ban.
“I am ecstatic that the Courts finally recognized what we’ve been saying for a long time-
Concealed Carry is a Right protected under the Constitution. I am pleased that the courts now recognize that we need to finally restore our citizens Constitutional Rights in Illinois.
