Illinois’ House passed concealed carry legislation Friday, sending it to the Senate despite strong objections from Governor Quinn and Mayor Emanuel.

Senate President John Cullerton denounced the measure passed in the House — which would override home-rule restrictions on weapons, effectively ending local laws like Chicago’s assault weapons ban.

Governor Quinn promised to block its passage in the Senate.
