   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - An Illinois lawmaker wants to increase penalties for gun owners who illegally carry firearms into schools.
   State Rep. Deborah Conroy is introducing a proposal that would make carrying guns into Illinois schools a felony. That includes pre-schools up to colleges and universities. Currently, first and second-time offenders are charged with a misdemeanor.
   Another measure introduced by the Democrat from Villa Park increases fines for carrying guns into prohibited places from $150 to $500. Fines currently go to a state mental health fund.
   Conroy says this proposal is about providing more money to cover mental health services. She says the current amount is too low.
   The bill is in a House committee with other proposals changing the concealed carry law passed last year.

   A St. Charles man is facing charges for shooting a neighbor's car after becoming upset over high school pranksters.  

   It happened about 11:30 Sunday night in the 1300 block of Edinburgh Drive.  

   Police say Daniel Beauchamp had come outside with a shotgun after discovering a group of teens in his yard with rolls of toilet paper.  The would-be TP-ers ran.  

   A neighbor told police she encountered Beauchamp in the street where he hit her car and yelled at her when she tried to drive around him.  She says she heard a popping sound, but kept going.  She got home and discovered that her front tire had been shot.  

   Beauchamp has admitted that he shot at the neighbor's car. His bail is set at 20-thousand dollars.

   Recent efforts to curb crime are working.  That's according to St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson when he spoke with hundreds of people who gathered at the Demetrious Johnson Center for a town hall meeting Thursday night.  

   Mayor Francis Slay was also there along with several parents of murdered children.  All seemed to agree that keeping the dialog going was critical to fighting violent crime in the city.  

   Chief Dotson says a total of 56 people have been murdered in St. Louis in 2013, 10 fewer than by this time last year. He credits a recent surge of ATF agents in the city with taking more than 200 criminals of the streets.
