The Illinois State Rifle Association just posted this on their Facebook page.
The bill failed to garner the necessary 71 votes, (65 Yea) and has been placed on postponed consideration. That means the bill is still active and is not dead.
I guess the good news is that it isn’t dead. Still it would be nice to see Illinois join Free State status.
UPDATE: Thirdpower at Days of our Trailers has more on what went on today here. Also read the comments on the bill below from Randian and David Lawson.
