Gun Advocates Vow to Fight Attorney General Over Concealed-Carry

Last month, a three-judge panel struck down Illinois' ban and gave lawmakers 180 days to write a law legalizing it. Illinois is the only remaining state where concealed carry is entirely illegal. The judges said the ban was unconstitutional and suggested that legalizing concealed carry is long overdue.
