Illinois House overrides Quinn’s veto of concealed carry bill

The Illinois House, with no debate, voted 77-31 today to override Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn’s changes to a legislative compromise plan to regulate the concealed carrying of firearms in the state.

The state Senate must also vote to override Quinn’s rewrite of the bill for the measure to become law. That vote is expected later today.

The measure got 89 votes in its original House roll call at the end of May. It needed 71 House votes to override Quinn’s amendatory veto.

This is a developing story. Check back for details.

    Dan you are certainly right. The problem in COOK (crook) County is there are a lot of poor, ignorant, uneducated animals running around the jungles with nothing but hatred. Politicians like them because they can coach them on their vote.Whenever Blacks in America come together as one, the rest of the World will have no choice but to kiss our black AZZ. When we put our head together we are geniuses.
    Yes it is a great day for the citizens of Illinois.
