The measure has also been approved by the House and now moves to Governor Pat Quinn’s desk. The legislation requires all local governments to allow concealed carry, but existing firearms ordinances can be retained. It would prohibit the carrying of guns in such places as schools, taverns and parks, but allows a gun to be kept securely in a car in a parking lot.
