As the debate over right-to-carry in Illinois continues, Representative La Shawn Ford, a third-term Democrat from Chicago with a predominantly black constituency, says he believes his voters want the right to bear arms, and he is therefore considering support for right-to-carry in his state. Cam Edwards speaks with Todd Vandermyde, NRA Illinois Lobbyist, who expands upon the debate at large and the current divide between Illinois citizens and lawmakers in regards to this issue.
