PEORIA,Ill -- One local state representative vows not to give up the fight to establish a concealed carry law in Illinois.
State Representative Mike Unes said he's disappointed the bill did not come up for a vote or discussion during the last days of the spring legislative session. He added despite that, he still has not given up on a chance for a debate on the matter this year.
"There's some court cases right now that are being looked at in our state and we're still hoping to have a chance to get a vote on it if we either get back for a summer special session or in the fall session," Unes said.
Mike Unes said increased shootings and crime in Chicago are proof that Cook County's gun control laws are not working.
