Illinois House Bill 264 would create a statewide standard for the purchase of firearms for protection and would remove the ability of municipalities to pass local restrictions. The legislation has passed a House committee vote 13-1. Cam Edwards speaks with NRA Illinois Lobbyist Todd Vandermyde who says there is a lot of sympathy in the legislature for gun owners in places such as Chicago where draconian gun restrictions infringe on citizens' Second Amendment rights.
