Attorney General Lisa Madigan wants another month to decide whether to appeal the concealed carry ruling. But Richard Pearson, with the Illinois State Rifle Association, says Madigan has already been granted two extensions, so her time may be running out.
Lawmakers had six months to pass a concealed carry bill, but they waited until the last day of session to push it through. It’s a compromise bill that has give and take from people on both sides of the gun issue.
Still, Chicago-area lawmakers don’t like it and want the governor to veto the bill. He has until July 9th to take action on the bill, and right now, Madigan has until June 24th to decide if she’ll appeal. She wants to have until July 24. Some believe she wants to wait and see what Quinn will do before she makes a final decision.
