Would be nice if it was true, and it actually has a chance in WI, being as the state constitution is on your side there. But not going to happen in Illinois unless the federal courts force it, and they generally do everything they can to avoid forcing states to do anything at all.but even then I know that if 1% of gun owners got active we'd have Vermont-style carry in a year.
In IL there are something like a million FOID cardholders. 1% is 10,000. There were by some accounts 5000 people that marched on Springfield last year. No practical effect.
I think a few hundred dedicated volunteers can do a lot, but VT style carry in a year is not one of the things that can be accomplished in that time frame.
We can't even get preemption passed in this state.
