ILLINOIS -- A 30 day extension has been granted by the U.S Supreme Court for a concealed carry appeal.

Attorney General Lisa Madigan now has until June 24th to appeal a federal ruling that requires Illinois to legalize concealed carry.

The appeal extension, however, does not affect the original June 9th deadline for the passage of that legislation.

Illinois is currently the only state not to allow some form of concealed carry.
