Its a crappy article, but the last paragraph jumped out at me.
PEORIA - Illinois residents will have to wait at least another month before a state law allows them to conceal and carry. Tuesday, the Supreme Court granted Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan's request for a second extension.
A federal appeals court originally requested Illinois lift its ban on concealed carry by June 9. That date was then extended to July 9.
Now, Governor Quinn won't have to sign the bill, that's already been voted on by lawmakers, until July 22.
In the meantime, more prosecutors are stepping forward saying they won't charge citizens for concealed carry offenses.
Peoria County State's Attorney Jerry Brady said, "We have a duty, in other words, if the appellate court says that a couple of sections of a statute are not constitutional and in fact, are unconstitutional, then you know, we have a duty, as we have that we don't prosecute those."
McLean County State's Attorney Jason Chambers said, "I won't prosecute anyone under the unlawful use of weapons, which was found unconstitutional in December. While I'm not charging people, that doesn't mean police won't arrest them for having a gun on them or in their car."
