Court Gives Extension To Decide Concealed Carry Appeal

The U.S. Supreme Court is granting the Illinois attorney general more time to decide on an appeal over the carrying of concealed weapons.
A spokeswoman for Attorney General Lisa Madigan says the court decided Tuesday to extend the deadline to July 22.
The Democrat is weighing whether to take to the high court a challenge to the December ruling by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that declared the Illinois ban on concealed carry unconstitutional.
The appellate court ordered the ban be lifted by June 9. The Legislature adopted a plan that Gov. Pat Quinn is reviewing and the court extended that deadline until July 9. 
One thing Madigan’s staff wants to consider is the governor’s action. If he signs the bill, an appeal would be moot. (AP)
