Concealed Carry



Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan says legislation allowing the carrying of concealed guns will get a vote Friday.
 
He says he believes there are sufficient votes to adopt a plan.
Madigan says the measure incorporates most of the items city of Chicago officials wanted in a gun-carry bill. 
 
Madigan's language tweaks an earlier proposal by Rep. Brandon Phelps. Phelps says he's on board with the changes. 
 
Other provisions in the bill include the ability of police at any level to object to an application, with an appeals process; sixteen hours of training; mental health reporting; and a list of areas where guns are prohibited.
 
Madigan and Phelps say the National Rifle Association has taken no position on the bill.
 
SB 2193 is expected to be heard in the House judiciary committee today, and the floor Friday.
