Illinois Municipalities Rush to Pass Assault Weapons Limits Before Friday's Deadline

The Friday deadline was set through a new state law that makes it legal to carry concealed weapons in public. The legislation included a provision that gave local governments 10 days from its passage to enact local weapons regulations, and that clock started when the General Assembly overrode Gov. Pat Quinn's veto of the concealed carry law last week.
