Is there hope for Illinois on the right to bear arms?

Found this story thru a blog, Gun Control Watch:
The McLean County Board took action Tuesday to protect the rights of gun holders.

Board members approved a resolution to oppose any state law that would infringe on a gun holder's second amendment rights.

The resolution is meant to inform the Illinois legislature where the county stands on the issue of gun control.

According to McLean county board chairman Matt Sorenson, 82 out of the 102 counties in Illinois have passed similar legislation.

Now the next question is what are the odds that the Illinois legislature or even anyone else in power throughout the state are likely to listen and then willingly change course. I hope they are listening.

McHenry County is the only county in the six-county Chicago area where the same resolution has been passed.
