Illinois is now poised to join the 49 other states in America by throwing its antiquated prohibition on self-defense outside the home into the dustbin of history. The Illinois Senate passed HB183 earlier today by a margin of 45-12-1 (36 votes are required to over-ride a governor’s veto). The House approved it moments ago by a vote of 89-28 (71 votes required to over-ride). It’s time for a glass of champagne. FINALLY!
