Full text of the cc act as passed by the House is here:

http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/98/SB/09800SB2193ham001.htm

As for Quinn and Rham-bow, if you follow the discussion at illinoiscarry.com, the best theory (I think) is that Quinn wants to sabotage the act so Lisa has to deal with the default to Constitutional Carry on June 9th. But if Quinn could get the Senate to stall it, Lisa has given herself enough time to file cert and push the whole thing into limbo while SCOTUS decides the matter. But that could go badly, and Daddy Madigan is, we believe, trying to hand her a clean slate for her gubernatorial bid, so both he and she want this done before the June 9th deadline.

This bill, BTW is Madigan’s creation, and he gave a speech Friday which suggests he is solidly behind it. No surprise, really, in that. But what is a bit surprising is he managed to kill Cullerton’s Senate alternative, which, by all accounts was much worse. And he had to do that by pulling dem senators away from Cullerton. He’s the Speaker of the House? How did he do that? Anyway, it’s Madigan senior vs Cullerton, and Madigan (Lisa) vs Quinn, a huge power struggle, in which I would, if I were a betting man (and I am not), would put all my chips on Madigan winning both contests.

Yes, beyond the 2A aspects, this bill is a wonderful dilemma for the Illinois Democratic party. If the 2A gets screwed, downstate Illinois might flip much more solidly to the Republicans.

Speaker Madigan is trying to get his daughter elected Governor. He realizes that will never happen if she runs as a gun grabber (she can’t run left of Quinn). So he is forced (for the time being) to ally with the NRA/ISRA. Speaker Madigan is utter vermin, as is Lisa Madigan. But for the moment he is compelled to recognize political reality.
