Just asking but why if the gov vetoes this bill does constitutional carry become automatic ?

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/12/11/federal-court-strikes-down-illinois-ban-on-carrying-concealed-weapons/

Illinois is under a court order. If the legislature can't come up with something to (somewhat) recognize the 2A the state (felony) anti-carry laws are void. This throws everything into limbo, since Illinois has "home rule" whereby any city of sufficient size can pass their own restrictions. These restrictions are only misdemeanors at most, and also subject to court challenge.

It would be fun to watch if you didn't live here.

Correct, and I *think* Home Rule is what Quinn was referring to the other day when he said (quite "stupidly") that he wanted a law passed that enabled each municipality to pass it's own "conceal/carry" ordinances.

That's just absurd! Imagine legally conceal/carrying in your hometown, but violating some obscure ordinance that you had no way of knowing about the minute you cross municipal borders!

The insanity!
