At least two state’s attorneys around Illinois aren’t waiting for a new concealed carry law.
Prosecutors in Randolph and Madison Counties now say they will no longer prosecute such cases… citing last year’s federal court ruling that ordered the state to end its ban on concealed carry.
But that ruling is on hold while Governor Pat Quinn reviews legislation approved by the General Assembly last month, but the two prosecutors say gun owners have waited long enough.
Locally, though, the ban remains in force.
State’s Attorney John Milhiser has said he will enforce the laws on the books… until those laws are changed by the legislature or the courts.
