Rockford concealed carry forum fills up


A Rockford event to prepare people for concealed carry proved quite popular Monday night. Several people were turned away because the building was at capacity.

Dozens of people filled the YWCA in Rockford for the Concealed Carry Forum. A panel of experts on the matter, including Winnebago County State's Attorney Joe Bruscato, went over the law and talked about what people can expect.

The entire forum will be posted on the League of Women Voters website at
