The gun carry bill is posed for passage in Illinois' General Assembly. Gov. Pat Quinn has now said that he will veto any such bill. (His extensive quote giving reasons is in the link.)

It's not right that an urban cesspool dictates policy to the rest of the state.

Once a city reaches a certain size it should be considered an entity unto itself.

It's absurd.

I love when he said he was doing it because he knows what's best for the people. He also says that he's vetoing it because he knows where the people stand.

What a scumbag.

He is just vetoing himself out of office.

Yeah, because all of those state reps who got the bill this far are completely out of touch with their constituents.


At least that's what gov dumbass must be thinking if he believes the garbage he's saying.

The answer is simple. Conceal anyway. Just don't put yourself in the position to be searched and you'll be alright. We all know that the U.S. government is attacking our 2nd amendment slowly but surely, but how many people do you think will actually comply? Don't comply.

Illinois is one of the few states that discourage handguns of any kind..
however fear not USA.. our gun rights as a nation have been improving over the past ten or so years..
ten years ago I could not have gotten a CCP in Minnesota without being bonded as a security person..
but two years ago my sheriff had to give me one

a lot more states now are classified as SHALL ISSUE states..
not maybe but shall upon request..
as I am not a felon, I got one

This is a shame. He has the right to do it. I just completely disagree with what he is going to do though. Does anyone know if they can over ride his veto ?

Yeah, Quinn is a peice of $hit. He raised taxes on Jan 1st, instead of cutting spending, and then he pulls this crap. It's unconstitutional to deprive law abiding citizens the right to defend themselves. What a jerkoff!! I have a Florida CCW license, and carry whenever out of state, and there's no reason I shouldn't be able to do it when I have to travel through the $hithole neighborhoods of Chicago.

It would take a supermajority, due to the fact that if a law affects home rule (local ordinances such as Chicago's gun laws) in order to override a veto, it takes 2/3 vote instead of simple majority, which we were 6 votes short of. Maybe next year though. JOIN THE NRA!!! Help to support our constitutional rights.
