Quinn reviewing concealed carry bill

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Governor Pat Quinn is reviewing the concealed carry bill lawmakers sent him last week.

The plan does not repeal local public safety ordinances including Chicago's assault weapons ban, but does ban concealed weapons in schools and playgrounds.

The bill passed with veto-proof majority which means the legislature can override any potential veto by the Governor.

When speaking to reporters, Wednesday, Quinn did not speak on what parts, if any, of the bill he agrees with.

Tuesday, the Federal Appellate Court granted Illinois a 30-day extension to enact a concealed carry law.

Illinois is currently the only state with a ban on concealed weapons.
