Gov. Pat Quinn makes big changes and stricter regulations to the concealed carry bill. On Tuesday, Quinn took amendatory veto action on House Bill 183, legislation that will allow and regulate the carrying of concealed handguns in public places.
“My foremost duty as Governor is to keep the people of Illinois safe,” Governor Quinn said in a news release. “This is a flawed bill with serious safety problems that must be addressed. There are too many provisions in this bill that are inspired by the National Rifle Association, not the common good. Public safety should never be compromised or negotiated away, and I urge members to uphold the common sense changes I propose today."
