Quinn: Concealed Carry Decision is 'Imminent'
Gov. Pat Quinn says a decision is “imminent” on whether he’ll sign a concealed carry bill.
Illinois faces a July 9 deadline to legalize carry of weapons after a federal appeals court found Illinois' ban unconstitutional. Quinn has given few hints about what he'll do.
Quinn could veto the measure which outlines who can carry.
Quinn declined to give details Monday after signing a school safety bill.
Experts argue about what happens if Illinois doesn't have laws in place by the deadline. Gun rights advocates say it would mean any gun could be carried anywhere. Others say it would allow local municipalities to adopt carry laws.
