ROCHELLE — Concealed carry has become legal in Illinois, but the law has left many citizens wondering what they can and cannot do and how concealed carry will affect citizens.
The League of Women Voters is hosting a round table discussion with local law enforcement officers to answer community members questions on Thursday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. in the Via room at First National Bank.
“We are not there to discuss views, our intent is to educate the public attending about the new Illinois conceal carry law that goes in effect January 2014. We understand this is a new law itself and we are all just learning about the law itself and its effects on the citizens of Illinois,” League of Women Voters board member Jim May explained. “Our meeting is not to promote either side of this controversial law, but to find out together how we are to live with it.”
Participants in the round table discussion are Rochelle Police Chief Eric Higby, State’s Attorney Mike Rock, Ogle County Sheriff Mike Harn and DeKalb County Sheriff Roger Scott. May will serve as moderator.
