Illinois House Speaker to Quinn: Sign Concealed Carry
The Chicago Democrat said Tuesday that a veto would be ineffective. The concealed carry legislation the General Assembly approved last month passed by votes large enough to override a gubernatorial veto. Illinois is the last U.S. state to prohibit the public possession of concealed guns. A federal appeals court declared the ban unconstitutional in December. It ordered a remedy by June 9 - which it later extended to July 9.
Quinn - also a Chicago Democrat - has not said what position he'll take on the bill but has expressed concerns for strong restrictions on firearms.
Madigan predicted Quinn would act in a way that benefits his re-election campaign in 2014.
