"Supreme Court order requires lawmakers to craft concealed carry laws" and Governor Quinn promises to block a supreme court requirement? I hope he and any Illinois Senators ready to go to jail over it, because they should if he does what they said. The Supreme Court is over your jurisdiction, if you're not willing to abide by their decisions you all need to be removed from office.IL House passes concealed carry legislation

Illinois’ House passed concealed carry legislation Friday, sending it to the Senate despite strong objections from Governor Quinn and Mayor Emanuel.
A Supreme Court order requires lawmakers to craft concealed carry laws by June 9th.
Senate President John Cullerton denounced the measure passed in the House — which would override home-rule restrictions on weapons, effectively ending local laws like Chicago’s assault weapons ban.
Governor Quinn promised to block its passage in the Senate.
