Lawmaker Urges People To Sign Gun Petition

By The Associated Press

Alton, IL  --  A new petition is making the rounds, giving people a chance to weigh in on gun control.  State Rep Dwight Kay is behind the online petition.  He says Chicago politicians have blatantly disregarded the Constitutional right to bear arms for years, and now is the time to stand up and protect families and property from violent criminals. The petition will be presented to other lawmakers urging them to support a bill to legalize concealed carry.  Anyone who wants to sign it can check out Kay.ILHouseGOP.org.
