My rep has already voted yes for it once, so I don't have to bug him too much this time.
Mine is a sponsor. Nyeh-nyeh!

As a former IL resident, I can tell you that the 'R' or 'D' next to someone's name doesn't really mean much, what's more important is what part of the state the politician in question is from. Generally speaking, the closer to Chicago the politician's home is, the more anti-gun he or she is.
Yup. Chicago or "downstate" is the big divide.

The last governor of IL that I could see supporting CC was probably Jim Edgar,
I think Edgar actually vetoed a carry bill.
