Concealed Carry Appeal



Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is seeking a 30-day delay of a mandate for the state to enact a concealed gun carry law.
 
Madigan says she filed the motion with the U.S. Court of Appeals in order to give Gov. Pat Quinn time to review the legislation passed last week.
 
Illinois was the last state in the union banning the concealed carrying of guns when, in December, an appeals court panel struck down the ban. The court gave lawmakers until June 9 to legalize the concealed carry of firearms.
 
Madigan says the current stay of the court's mandate expires in less than a week. She says that will significantly shorten the time set in the state constitution to allow Quinn to review legislation.
