Illinois now has until July 22nd to enact a concealed-carry law. That's after the U.S. Supreme Court granted a request by the state Attorney General to push back the deadline.
The sponsor of the concealed carry bill says it needs a minor fix amid concerns about transparency. The measure was drafted after a federal court ruled Illinois' concealed carry ban unconstitutional. It's still being reviewed by Governor Pat Quinn.
Governor Pat Quinn says he will “review” legislation allowing people to carry guns in public. The measure cleared the General Assembly Friday afternoon.
The Illinois House approved a concealed carry plan today: Governor Pat Quinn calls the measure a "massive overreach."
