A gun bill showdown appears to be shaping up at the State capitol.
An Illinois Senate Committee rejected a measure Tuesday that already passed in the House of Representatives, and instead approved their own legislation.
Here’s the main difference: The House bill bans municipalities from drawing up their own concealed carry laws. It would also end Chicago’s ban on assault weapons.
A federal appeals court is giving Illinois until June 9 to approve a measure that will allow people to carry guns that are hidden.
