House votes to override Quinn's concealed carry changes in Illinois
Springfield – The Illinois House overrode Gov. Pat Quinn's amendatory veto of the state's pending concealed-carry law today, meaning the only thing between the state getting a conceal carry law on the books is a single floor vote.
Today's vote was 77-31 to override the restrictions Quinn wanted to write into the bill.
The override measure now moves to the Senate, which is expected to pass it this afternoon.
Today is the deadline for Illinois to have some sort of concealed carry law in place, under order of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Stay tuned for more updates.
