After all the ballots are cast the election results are in, well mostly. The GOP has claimed a majority in the US Senate, and House. Also Republican governors are set to take seats in some notoriously blue states, most notable to us, Illinois. Bruce Rauner is claiming victory in the Illinois governors race, but incumbent Quinn refuses to admit defeat till all ballots cast in yesterdays election are counted.
While the democrats struggle to let go of the governors office, Illinois also gained some conservative seats in the US House, but Dick Durbin was reelected as Senator.
For Illinois gun owners having a conservative supporter of concealed carry in the governor’s mansion is a cause for excitement and relief. Many in the Illinois legislature are anxious to make changes to Illinois newly implemented concealed carry law. Not to mention there is a pending lawsuit against Illinois concerning it’s discrimination against certain non-residents and recognizing their concealed carry permits.
The coming months and years are sure to see new firearms related bills in the news, and gun owners of Illinois are a step ahead with Bruce Rauner in the governors chair.
