Paperwork filed to override Governor's veto of concealed carry legislation

With a week to go before a deadline requiring Illinois allow people to carry guns in public, Governor Pat Quinn Tuesday vetoed the legislation that would have authorized concealed carry.  The governor claims he's concerned about public safety, but he's already under fire by critics who say it's a political stunt. As Illinois Public Radio’s Amanda Vinicky reports, the measure's sponsor has already filed paperwork to override Quinn's changes.
