Gun Groups Hammer Out Language With Legislators


Illinois is under a court order to allow for some kind of carry law, and in order to comply, the Illinois General Assembly is hearing from gun control advocates and gun rights groups on what kind of law should be crafted.

 

During a committee hearing Tuesday, gun rights groups say that the state should pass a concealed carry law that states "shall issue," while gun control groups want the state to craft a law that states "may issue."

 

Lawmakers are under a court order by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to pass a carry law by June 9th. Attorney General Lisa Madigan is appealing the ruling, but it's unclear when that will be heard.
