Ill. lawmakers hold town hall on conceal carry

February 2, 2013 (CHICAGO)

Congressman Danny Davis, State Senator Mattie Hunter, Representative Ken Dunkin and Alderman Pat Dowell held a town hall meeting on the South Side.

Illinois is the only state that bans concealed weapons, but a federal appeals court recently threw out the ban and gave lawmakers six months to craft a bill to let people legally carry guns.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has asked the full appeals court to review the decision.
