ILLINOIS (KMOV.com) --Following the massacre at Sandy Hook elementary, many are talking about what changes need to be made concerning our gun laws.  The massacre will likely play a role in the changing conceal and carry laws in Illinois.

Earlier this week, an appeals court ruled Illinois’ ban on conceal and carry unconstitutional, forcing the state to draw up a law in the next six months allowing it. 

“I think there is a bit of concern, if we didn't have an emotional reaction to something like this we wouldn't be human, so absolutely we're going to, everyone will have an emotional reaction, it's been said though it's not good wisdom to make a decision when you're really happy or really sad, so in the wake of this yet another tragedy at the hands of a madman, what do we do, and that's really the question,” said Mark Palmisano a spokesman from Illinois Carry, a gun advocate group in the Metro East.

Illinois lawmakers expect to start talking about a conceal and carry law when they return to Springfield on January 2nd.
