Quinn and ISRA Battle Over Local Control for Concealed Carry As Deadline Approaches


Governor Pat Quinn is sticking to his guns about what should go into an eventual concealed carry bill in Illinois.

 

Quinn wants to see the standards about who gets to carry weapons left up to the control of local municipalities, rather than being set at the state level.

 

But the Illinois State Rifle Association adamantly opposes that, saying it would lead to a patchwork of different laws that would be impossible for gun owners to keep track of, or obey.

 

The difference of opinion could jeopardize efforts to craft a bill that can win approval of lawmakers and be signed into law before a court-ordered deadline for the state to approve “reasonable” concealed carry legislation.
