Quinn Won't Say If He'll Sign Concealed Carry
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn won't say if he'll sign a concealed carry bill that lawmakers approved last week. He told reporters yesterday he's reviewing the bill. Quinn declined to say what parts, if any, of the proposal he agrees with. Quinn had faced a Sunday deadline to make his decision, but a federal appeals court granted the state an extension yesterday.
Illinois now has until July 9 to legalize concealed carry. Illinois was the last state to ban concealed carry. But a federal appeals court ruled it unconstitutional and gave lawmakers until this weekend to come up with a solution. The plan lawmakers sent Quinn says guns are prohibited from schools and taverns but can be kept in cars, among other things.
