A federal appeals court Tuesday struck down Illinois’ law forbidding people to carry guns in public. The court also ordered the General Assembly to enact a measure allowing concealed carry.
WUIS Statehouse Bureau Chief Amanda Vinicky spoke with National Rifle Association lobbyist Todd Vandermyde about what the decision means for Illinois gunowners.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan says she’s reviewing the opinion – her office could try to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Illinois is the lone state without some form of concealed carry on the books.
