My home county passed a resolution against anti gun bills in Illinois. Nobody knows for sure what it means yet but it's getting folks excited.

Gun control laws not welcome in Pike County

PITTSFIELD, Ill. ‚ÄĒ The Pike County Board adopted a resolution Tuesday opposing any legislation that infringes on the right to keep and bear arms.
"What we are trying to do here is protect rights we already have," board member Robert Kenady said.
A standing-room-only crowd of mostly gun enthusiasts applauded several speakers and the 7-2 vote on the resolution, which will be forwarded to state legislators and all other counties in Illinois. Neighboring Brown County already has adopted a similar resolution. <snip>

The Shot Heard Around The Country (My title) At Baseless Gun Control Efforts

Pike County is renowned for some of the best whitetail and wild turkey hunting in Illinois. That deserved reputation has turned hunting into a significant revenue source for the county and its residents.
A threat to that revenue may cause Pittsfield, the county seat, to someday be known as the spot where a quiet groundswell of protest against the growing proliferation of firearms restrictions finally erupted into grassroots action.
On Tuesday evening the Pike County Board citing the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, passed a resolution saying no to any state legislation limiting the right to keep and bear arms would be recognized in Pike County.<snip>

It was also talked about in this segment of Guntalk: http://media-c01m01.libsyn.com/podcasts/f3440ac39cc06b60d3f8f14e230d1f11/463527cc/guntalk/070429guntalkA.mp3

I read about this on another forum,I think it says alot about how fead up people in downstate Illinois arewith all the bs gun control being proposed by our state legislature.

If you didnt know, the house may be voting on HB 1304 tomorrow, which would allow conceal carry in Illinois, show support, call your Representatives.

I'll be very surprised if a ccw law is passed at the state level. If it were left up to each county though, most of the state minus a few counties would have had it a long time ago.
