Gun activists plan Wednesday rally in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Illinois gun owners are getting ready to rally in Springfield as part of an effort to convince legislators to relax firearm regulations.

The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers reports (http://bit.ly/MKJLUC ) a march is scheduled to take place Wednesday.

Gun activists want lawmakers to reduce the list of places were guns are prohibited under the new concealed carry law.

State Rep. Brandon Phelps is a Harrisburg Democrat who was the primary architect of the regulations.

He says he’d like to see the restrictions reduced eventually. But he thinks the rules need to be in place for a while before they’re amended.

He says: “Once people see that this isn’t the Wild West, people will feel a bit more comfortable.”

The first concealed carry licenses were mailed last week.
