The Illinois House today could start debating amendments related to carrying concealed weapons.
Lawmakers have filed 27 amendments, including two in direct conflict with each other.
One, known as the “shall issue” standard, would require the state to issue concealed-carry permits to anyone who meets basic qualifications.
The other, known as “may issue,” would give local law enforcement some latitude to reject permits.
The state is under a June deadline imposed by a federal appeals court to adopt some kind of concealed carry law.
