Chicago Democratic state representatives says concealed carry "is coming" to Illlinois
A state representative from Chicago says lawmakers across the state must work together to craft a rational and "common sense" concealed carry law.
Democratic state Rep. Ken Dunkin told an audience at a town hall meeting in Chicago Saturday that concealed carry "is coming" to Illinois. He and other Chicago lawmakers held the meeting to gather input from constituents about proposed firearms legislation.
A federal appellate court judge ruled in December that the state's concealed carry ban was unconstitutional. He gave lawmakers 180 days to write a law legalizing it.
