Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence Speaker at March 2014 Meeting

Mark Walsh, Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence
The League of Women Voters of Lake County was pleased to welcome the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence (ICHV) to our March 12, 2014 meeting held in the community room at the Gurnee Police Facility. Mark Walsh, Campaign Director, spoke about Illinois' new concealed carry law and discussed some statistics related to gun violence. In addition, he informed the group of some legislation related to firearms that is making its way through the Illinois General Assembly this spring session. He answered a number of questions related to liability/responsibility of homeowners and business owners should gun violence occur on their property.

ICHV has produced a handbook outlining some of the frequently asked questions about concealed carry in Illinois. The handbook can be downloaded at
