Lawmakers are breathing a little easier this week, knowing they met their deadline on passing concealed carry.  They sent a "shall carry" bill to Governor Pat Quinn last week.  It would allow people to carry a gun in public if they pass mental health and criminal background checks, plus they'd have to get 16-hours worth of gun training and pay 150-bucks if they want to get a carry license.  

Opponents say the bill still doesn't go far enough to ensure safety but supporters say it's a truly compromised bill with a bit of give and take from everyone involved in negotiations.
