Nobody in Illinois is legally concealing and carrying yet, and there's an attempt to change one of the gun rules. State Sen. Don Harmon (D-Oak Park) proposes that the part of the law about who should post a sign be reversed. You may have already seen the “no guns allowed” signs, with the silhouette of a gun with a red circle around it and a red line through it. Why shouldn't businesses post this sign just as they may have posted similar “no smoking allowed” signs?

“It’s different only in that it’s abrupt and novel. We’re asking businesses now, because of a change in the law, to post a sign if they don’t want guns on their premises,” says Harmon. “It just makes sense to me that the businesses that are friendly to guns would be more embracing of signs than those that are not.”
