Quinn Makes Major Changes To Concealed Carry Bill


Governor Pat Quinn is making sweeping changes to the concealed carry bill that lawmakers approved back in May.  Quinn calls the bill flawed, and says his changes are necessary to protect public safety. 

 

Quinn’s changes would prohibit people from carrying guns into any establishment that serves alcohol, including most restaurants… limit a permit holder to carrying only one gun, and ten rounds of ammo, at a time… and restoring the rights of local governments to pass their own more restrictive rules, including assault weapons bans. 

 

It will now be up to lawmakers whether to accept or reject Quinn’s changes before a court-ordered deadline next week.
