Quinn calls for concealed-carry appeal

SPRINGFIELD -- Governor Quinn wants to take the state's concealed-carry ban to the U.S. Supreme Court. He wants the state's Attorney General to appeal a ruling declaring the ban unconstitutional.

Quinn says violence has become an "epidemic" in some parts of Illinois. He wants the state to be the nation's leader in keeping the ban in place.

Lisa Madigan says she hasn't decided whether she'll appeal. Lawmakers have until June to create concealed-carry legislation.
