Concealed Carry Law Will Increase Safety

March 28, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — As a proposed concealed carry bill moves through the Illinois state House, opponents of the measure plan to voice their concerns Tuesday.

Victims of gun violence, Chicago police and gun control advocates plan to hold a news conference at the Thompson Center.

They argue that new national figures show that the death toll from guns permitted by concealed carry laws is on the rise.

However, supporters of concealed carry believe the law will increase safety by allowing people to protect themselves.
