Concealed carry gun bill fails


Springfield – The Illinois House has defeated a proposal allowing the carrying of concealed guns in public.


The vote of 64 to 45 in favor in the bill failed because it needed 71 votes. Illinois is the only state in the nation that prohibits possessing guns in public.


A federal appeals court ruled the law unconstitutional in December giving Illinois until June to adopt a new law.
