Candidate for Governor Jim Ryan says he will veto any conceal carry bill that crosses his desk...

So much for Jim Ardis' plan to use Peoria as a test market for conceal carry in Illinois if Jim Ryan would become Governor.

70% of "Blogging While Republican" readers expressed support of the Ardis proposal for conceal carry. (see side margin).

According to an AP questionnaire, Jim Ryan promised to veto any such legislation.

QUESTION: "Would you sign or veto legislation allowing concealed-carry for handguns?"

-- Jim Ryan: "I would veto. I believe reasonable people can differ on this issue but on balance, drawing from my experience as a law enforcement official, I believe we are better off without concealed-carry."

I give him an "A" for honesty, but here is a newsflash for Jim - most Republicans disagree!

If you are a strong supporter of second amendment rights, it appears that Jim Ryan is not your guy! Here is a list of all 13 Governor candidates. Their websites are hyperlinked to their name. Pick your candidate, make a donation if possible, and get to work putting an individual in the Governor's mansion that will best represent the issues you care about!

The State Board of Elections website wouldn't allow me to hyperlink to the governor's list, but click on the link above anyway, select "statewide executive office" and then "governor". The complete list will appear.
