    Thumbs up Illinois committee passes gun bill despite veto threat

    SPRINGFIELD Gov. Pat Quinn's vow Tuesday to veto legislation allowing Illinois residents to carry concealed firearms in public did not dissuade a House committee from passing the bill.

    This is clearly a spiteful interwed rumor.

    I mean Quinn the eskablowme clearly says the good people of ILL don't want blood running in the streets.

    "I think the passage of this law by the General Assembly would be most unwise and they should know where they governor stands and where the people stand."
    And yet there is a Bill...

    Good to see them do this instead of just sitting on their butts.

    The bill failed to pass in the Illinois house. It only received 65 of the 71 votes needed fo passage.
