Phelps criticizes Governor Quinn on “C + C” legislation

Posted by wlpo on July 7, 2013

The sponsor of legislation to allow the concealed carry of firearms in Illinois says Governor Pat Quinn’s efforts to make the measure more restrictive could backfire and lead to “mayhem.” Representative Brandon Phelps is a Democrat from Harrisburg. He says Quinn is trying to appeal to voters in Cook County and is ignoring the rest of the state. A federal court has set Tuesday as the deadline for Illinois to end its last-in-the-nation ban on the public possession of guns.
