   A fundraiser for a state senator from the St. Louis area is drawing fire.  

   State Senator Brian Nieves (R) plans to give raffle off an AR-15 assault rifle at a fundraiser in Pacific next month.  Raffle tickets will go to supporters who give $1,000 or more at the October 12th event.  

   Critics accuse Nieves of stunting to draw support for an override of Nixon's veto of a controversial gun rights bill -- a bill that criminalizes the enforcement of federal gun laws in Missouri, and which Nieves sponsored.  

   But the Senator says this isn't the first time he's given away a gun at a fundraiser, its just the first AR-15.  

   Missouri lawmakers will gather in Jefferson City Wednesday and attempt to override a number of Nixon vetoes, including House Bill 436.

   Nieves represents Franklin and western St. Louis Counties.

PARK RIDGE, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois state senator wants to add churches to the list of places where concealed guns wouldn't be allowed.

Park Ridge Democrat Dan Kotowski says he doesn't agree with a provision in the state's new concealed-carry law that allows guns in churches, temples or mosques. He filed an amendment to the law Monday and says he'll push for its approval.

Illinois was the last state in the nation to approve concealed-carry legislation this month.

Kotowski is a former gun control lobbyist.

He's one of a number of lawmakers seeking changes to the gun bill, although lawmakers voted to override changes that Gov. Pat Quinn proposed last week to meet a federal court deadline.

Several other states, including Nebraska, South Carolina and North Dakota, prohibit carrying concealed guns in churches.

CHICAGO (AP) - An Illinois state senator has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor after being accused last year of trying to board a flight with a gun.

Donne Trotter's attorney, Thomas Durkin, says his client entered a guilty plea to reckless conduct on Wednesday as part of an agreement with prosecutors.

Durkin says the deal calls for the conviction to be stricken if Trotter successfully completes a year of non-reporting court supervision.

Durkin says a judge approved the agreement on Wednesday.
