HB997 could be much worse. But I'd rather see constitutional carry than HB997.
Nevermind. I thought the bill allowed police to detain an OCer without reasonable suspicion until I looked through the bill and found this:
Section 70 - (e)
If a law enforcement officer initiates an investigative
stop, including but not limited to a traffic stop, of a
licensee who is carrying a concealed firearm, the licensee
shall disclose as soon as reasonably possible to the officer
that he or she is in possession of a concealed firearm under
this Act. Disclosure may be accomplished by oral notification
or by providing or displaying the license to carry a concealed
firearm to the officer.
I doubt Chicago police will accept your oral notification, though.
