SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- The Illinois Senate might vote Tuesday on new legislation that would include Gov. Pat Quinn’s suggestions for tightening a law allowing the carrying of concealed guns.
Senate Democrats are meeting to decide whether to vote on the bill. They still plan to override Quinn’s veto of the main concealed carry bill.
The override would make the concealed carry law official on the last day a federal appeals court allowed for Illinois to enact a plan.
Quinn wants guns prohibited from any place serving alcohol, wants to limit citizens to carrying one completely concealed gun, and to require those packing guns to immediately inform police if questioned.
He changed the bill with an amendatory veto. The House has already voted to override.
