>>Quinn Issues "Ban The Box" Order
(Plainfield, IL) -- People who apply for a job with the state won't have to disclose whether they've plead guilty or been convicted of a crime. Governor Quinn has issued an administrative order "banning the box" that asks the question on job applications for positions with the state. Employers can still ask about a criminal history during the interview process, though. Some lawmakers disagree with the order, saying it makes the state more vulnerable, but supporters say it'll give ex-cons a fair shot at employment and a second chance at life.
>>Concealed Carry Permits Issue Dates Pushed Back
(Springfield, IL) -- People who want to carry guns in public can start applying for permits in January, but the permits won't likely be issued until April. That's a couple weeks behind the originally scheduled March date. Gun shop owner and concealed carry trainer Ron Darnall says the Illinois State Police are running behind on putting a training curriculum in place.
People will need to have at least eight hours of training on things like how to shoot, handle, and store a gun before they can get a permit. Classes are expected to begin in the next few weeks.
>>House Majority PAC Targets Rodney Davis
(Washington, DC) -- Congressman Rodney Davis is the target of a new Democrat attack ad. The ad features a crying baby and calls on Davis to stop throwing tantrums when he can't have his way. Davis has repeatedly said he'd be a target in the upcoming election. His 13th Congressional District is pretty much split with voters from both sides of the aisle, so Democrats think they can win the seat back next year. Davis is facing a primary battle against former Miss America Erika Harold.
>>Man Attacks Wrong Family
(Glen Carbon, IL) -- A case of mistaken identity left a Glen Carbon couple and their attacker with multiple stab wounds. Police say Grant Connor thought he was at someone else's home when he showed up to a house on Kinder Place Sunday afternoon and pretended like his car had broken down. He asked the male resident if he could use his cell phone but when the man went to get it, Connor attacked, stabbing him eight times in the head. The victim's wife was also stabbed, and Connor was stabbed in the throat after the male victim managed to grab a knife. The couple has been treated and released from a hospital but Connor remains hospitalized and is facing two-counts of attempted first-degree murder.
>>Blackhawks Head To St. Louis To Take On The Blues
(Chicago, IL) -- The Hawks are headed to St. Louis tonight, to take on the Blues. The puck drops at 7:00p.m. The Hawks are one-and-one to start the season.
