A productive year for the state's gun-rights advocates. The NRA's Illinois lobbyist Todd Vandermyde joins Cam & Company by phone to discuss the ups and downs of the last legislative session in Illinois. He explains that four anti-gun bills were defeated in the House, with each getting fewer votes than the last, and Second Amendment supporters were able to amend an arms-trafficking task force bill that was full of gun-control provisions. The judicial battle in Illinois is ongoing, but gun-rights advocates have scored some legislative victories.
