Illinois granted extension to lift weapons ban
An appellate court is giving Illinois an extra 30 days to lift its ban on concealed weapons.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan requested the court give Governor Quinn more time to review legislation passed in Springfield last week.
He was facing a Sunday deadline, but now has until July 9th to take action.
Illinois is the last state with a ban on the concealed carrying of guns.
The ban was ruled unconstitutional in December.
The court warned it would not issue another extension.
