Gov. Quinn To Make Announcement On Concealed Carry

Updated:

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn will announce Tuesday morning, July 2, 2013, whether he'll sign a concealed-carry bill.

Time is running out.

The State of Illinois has a deadline of a week from today to legalize concealed carry of weapons because a federal appeals court has ruled the current ban is unconstitutional.

Quinn could sign the concealed carry bill as is or issue an amendatory veto today, which allows him to re-write the measure.

The governor has scheduled a press conference for 11:00 a.m.
