GODFREY — State Rep. Dan Beiser, D-Alton, and state Sen. Bill Haine, D-Alton, will partner with the Illinois Rifle Association to host a concealed carry seminar at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 8, at the Alton-Wood River Sportsmen’s Club, 3109 Godfrey Road.
“I encourage area gun owners and others interested in concealed carry to attend the concealed carry seminar,” Beiser said. “It will be a great opportunity to meet with other gun owners and learn about Illinois gun laws. There will be an open discussion about legislative advances for concealed carry and gun laws in Illinois, and residents will be able to ask any questions that they may have about specific gun laws.”
The seminar is free and open to the public. Richard Pearson, president of the Illinois Rifle Association, will discuss issues related to concealed carry. To attend the seminar, make a reservation by calling Beiser’s constituent service office at (618) 465-5900 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Since concealed carry is still a relatively new concept in the state of Illinois, attending the concealed carry seminar is a great way to learn about the state’s gun laws,” Beiser said. “Recently, laws have changed considerably, so it is important that gun owners are up to date and knowledgeable about the specific gun guidelines in their area.”
