It appears Illinois Governor Pat Quinn's amendatory veto of the concealed carry bill sent to him by lawmakers is more of a speed bump that a roadblock to getting a law on the books. Quinn called the bill flawed and said it had serious safety problems that needed to be addressed. He also claims it has too many provisions inspired by the National Rifle Association, but local lawmakers think the bill is a good example of compromise by both sides.
Asked if it is possible the Governor is stalling while the Attorney General prepares an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, State Senator Bill Haine (D-Alton) said he does not believe so.
State Representative Dan Beiser (D-Alton) says it is time to put this issue to rest
Both lawmakers believe a veto override will come sooner rather than later, with Haine calling for action within the next week.
