Gov. Quinn says local communities should have control over concealed-carry
Quinn wants the Illinois attorney general to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. But he says if there has to be concealed carry, local entities should have control.
"Local option would allow home-rule cities and counties to have their standards that the people in their community feel are appropriate with respect for any kind of weapon."
There's one proposal that would just give Cook County its own restrictions. Quinn told reporters he'd rather see a system where more communities have their own say.
