Dillard, lawmakers override Gov. Quinn's veto of Right-to-Carry legislation
HINSDALE – Facing a July 9 court deadline for Illinois to adopt concealed carry legislation, State Sen. Kirk Dillard (R-Hinsdale) said lawmakers returned to Springfield on Tuesday and overwhelmingly rejected Gov. Pat Quinn’s recent changes to Right-to-Carry legislation passed by Illinois lawmakers in late May.
Illinois now joins the other 49 states in the nation in allowing citizens to carry concealed firearms.
Lawmakers met extensively in the spring legislative session in negotiations on a concealed carry measure, but Gov. Quinn did not participate in that process, according to a news release from Dillard.
