State Senator Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) voted for a right-to-carry bill that passed the Illinois Senate and House on Friday, May 31, arguing that it all comes down to public safety.
Brady released the following statement following the vote:
“I voted for House Bill 183 not only because I believe in Second Amendment rights, but also because I believe in safeguarding the public,” said Brady. “House Bill 183 is a piece of legislation that responsibly legalizes concealed carry while providing adequate safety precautions for the people of Illinois. This issue is too important to leave it up in the air and I am happy we have taken definitive action.”
