The Pekin Country Club has closed its golf course entirely after the Illinois State Police delivered a cease-and-desist letter to the private venue to force compliance with Gov. J.B. Pritzker's stay-at-home executive order.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker says he's thankful that the state has not suffered a mass shooting like those over the weekend - without mentioning two major shootings with multiple deaths in the past decade.
Some Illinois gun dealers say the lack of guidelines governing them under a new state law that requires them to obtain a state license and implement a variety of security procedures is driving them out of business or across state lines.
