Lisa Madigan seeks 2nd delay on Illinois concealed carry

June 17, 2013 at 10:49 PM

The Associated Press


Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has asked the U.S. Supreme Court for a second monthlong extension of time to decide whether to appeal a lower court order allowing citizens to carry concealed guns.

Madigan requested a delay until July 24 to take action on a 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that sent lawmakers scrambling this spring to adopt legislation allowing the public possession of concealed firearms, according to a petition filed late Friday but made public Monday.

Illinois is the only state in the union to prohibit concealed carry.

The extra time would allow Madigan to see how Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn responds to the legislation sent to him while her office continues to research the issue and possible conflicts that the appellate court ruling created with decrees from other jurisdictions. Those will help the Democratic attorney general determine whether to appeal the ruling to the nation's highest court.

"Let's allow this process to work itself out, await gubernatorial action, whatever that may be, and determine the appropriate next steps from there," Madigan spokeswoman Natalie Bauer said Monday. "This request allows those actions to play out."

Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson again declined to indicate Monday where the Democratic governor stands on the bill awaiting his action. He is a strong gun-control proponent and initially advocated leaving concealed carry up to each large municipality to decide its own rules.

The appellate court ruled in December that Illinois' gun ban violated the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. It gave the state until June 9 to remedy the problem.

After the Legislature finally adopted a plan that it didn't send to Quinn until June 4, Madigan sought and received from appellate court justices an extension for gubernatorial action until July 9.
___

The bill is HB183.
