Illinois House Defeats Concealed Carry

Updated:

The Illinois House has defeated a proposal allowing concealed carry of guns in public. The vote was 64 to 45.

A supermajority of 71 votes would be needed to pass the proposal, because the law would pre-empt the home-rule powers of several cities.

The legislation would have required authorities to issue conceal-carry permits to anyone who passed background checks.'

Illinois is the only state in the nation that prohibits possessing guns in public.
