Quinn: Concealed carry decision is "imminent"

Posted:

Oak Park -- Gov. Pat Quinn says he'll make a decision on whether to sign a concealed carry bill "very shortly."

 

Illinois faces a July 9 deadline to legalize carry of weapons after a federal appeals court found Illinois' ban unconstitutional. But Quinn has given few hints about what he'll do, even after lawmakers asked him to make a decision quickly to they can plan next steps.

 

Quinn could veto the measure which outlines who can carry. Quinn declined to give details Monday after signing a school safety bill. He says a decision is "imminent."

 

Experts argue about what happens if Illinois doesn't have laws in place by the deadline. Gun-rights advocates say it would mean any gun could be carried anywhere. Others say it would allow local municipalities to adopt carry laws.
