Concealed Carry Passes Both Chambers; Bill Heads To Governor's Desk


The Illinois General Assembly made history Friday with passage of a bill that would end Illinois's status as the last state in the nation to allow citizens to legally carry concealed weapons.

 

The latest compromise bill won support in both chambers after last-minute amendments that keep the "shall issue" standard for the issuance of permits, but that also preserve many existing local gun regulation ordinances.

 

The bill now goes to Governor Pat Quinn, who has not yet said what he thinks of this version of the legislation.
