Share this post

Illinois has become the last state in the nation to adopt conceal and carry gun legislation. ABC News reports it came after a showdown between lawmakers and the governor. Governor Pat Quinn didn't think the legislation passed by both state chambers went far enough... "The legislature thinks that the bill they put on my desk is acceptable...having guns in bars. I don't." He made several amendments, including banning guns in bars. but today,  the state legislature voted to override the governor's changes to the original bill. The vote comes as a deadline set by federal appeals court that the state get a conceal and carry law on the books.
