Davis favors federal approach to concealed carry

13th Congressional District Candidate Rodney Davis departs from Republican Party orthodoxy on at least one issue, the second amendment. Davis says there is no way a concealed carry law will pass in Illinois with the Chicago vote.

   

Davis's predecessor as GOP candidate Tim Johnson had sponsored a bill to require states to offer reciprocity on concealed carry. In many other respects, Davis says he favors pushing responsibility to the states and says he favors a limited federal role in government. Davis faces Democrat David Gill in the November contest for the open seat in the newly re-drawn district stretching from Champaign and McLean Counties southwest to the Mississippi River.
