Want to carry a gun in Illinois? Pike voters may see it on ballot

Some Pike County men want Illinois to follow every other state giving them the right to carry a gun.

According to the Quincy Herald Whig, Pittsfield chiropractor Dan Mefford and Rick Rodhouse of Pleasant Hill filed a petition last week for a "constitutional carry of arms" ordinance with Pike County Clerk.

The petition will be available for public review in the clerk's office, and any objections must be filed by Dec. 27.

His hope is to see the constitutional carry initiative on the March 20 ballot.
