Kathy Smith - Candidate for Illinois State Rep - Launches Concealed Carry Site

Kathy Smith, who is running for Illinois State Representative in the 111th District recently announced the creation of a new site that encourages district residents to stand up and have their voice served when it comes to 'Concealed Carry' in Illinois and the 2nd Amendment.  The RiverBender covered the story this week.  And...there's more from her press release:

Republican County Board Member Kathy Smith (R-Alton) launched a website in support of passing a concealed carry law in Illinois. The website exposes the facts about why concealed carry has not become law in Illinois.
For years, Chicago political bosses have refused to uphold our constitutional rights. Illinois is the only state in the nation that has no procedures in place for law-abiding citizens to apply for concealed carry permits. 
“I support concealed carry and if elected I will sponsor legislation to legalize concealed carry for the citizens of Illinois,” said Kathy Smith. “Illinois citizens should be able to defend their families and friends from criminals who threaten their livelihoods. I support our Constitution and will always protect our right to bear arms.”

The 111th District includes communities such as: Alton, Bethalto, East Alton, Roxana, South Roxana, Hartford, Wood River, Elsah, Pontoon Beach, Godfrey, Granite City.
