Park Ridge to Talk Gun Control, Conceal Carry

Park Ridge to Talk Gun Control, Conceal Carry
The Park Ridge City Council plans to discuss the state's conceal carry legislation at it's meeting July 8.

The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at 505 Butler Place.

Illinois had to enact conceal carry legislation by July 9 after a federal court ruling. Although Gov. Pat Quinn issued an amendatory veto, the legislation was approved by enough votes to override the veto. A vote on Quinn's veto should come this week.

As currently written, municipalities such as Park Ridge only have 10 days to take action regarding the possession and use of fire arms after the bill becomes law.

The city had planned to discuss the issue in June, but the meeting was derailed by stormy weather and a subsequent power outage.
