Illinois gun owners are getting ready to rally at the capitol Wednesday as part of an effort to convince legislators to relax firearm regulations.

Gun activists want lawmakers to reduce the list of places were guns are prohibited under the new concealed carry law.

State Rep. Brandon Phelps says he’d like to see the restrictions reduced eventually. But he thinks the rules need to be in place for a while before they’re amended. The first concealed carry licenses were mailed last week.
