A new bill in the Senate is looking to reverse the law that requires business owners to post signs if they don't allow guns.
Right now, the law says owners must post a sign prohibiting firearms where they are not welcome. This new bill wants to change that.
Instead, the law would make owners post signs if guns were welcome. In that case, concealed carry owners should assume they cannot enter a business with a gun unless a sign tells them it's okay.
"It's just a question of what's the presumption. Can I carry a concealed weapon any place I don't see a picture of a gun with a big red circle and a line through it, or should I know with the law is should I assume I can carry a weapon into someone business if I'm not told its welcome by the proprietor?" Sen. Don Harmon, (D) Oak Park, asked.
Senator Harmon says this bill just makes more sense and says it will balance the competing gun rights.
