Quinn Talks Concealed Carry, Veto

Posted: Updated:

 

Governor Quinn is making another push for his proposed measures on concealed carry and this time he is standing with bars and restaurant owners to give the message that guns and alcohol do not mix.

"The people of Illinois know full well with their common sense that guns and alcohol never mix," Quinn said. "It's a toxic mixture. The legislature needs to act on behalf of the people of Illinois. Not on behalf of the National Rifle Association."

Earlier this week Governor Quinn used an amendatory veto to make several changes to the general assembly's concealed carry bill.
     
Right now the bill bans guns from some restaurants that serve liquor. Quinn wants to ban guns in any establishment that serves alcohol.
   
Lawmakers will meet Tuesday to try to override Quinn's veto.
