Court grants governor gun extension

SPRINGFIELD -- The governor will get an extra month to decide what to do with concealed-carry.
SPRINGFIELD -- The governor will get an extra month to decide what to do with concealed-carry. A federal appeals court okayed the Attorney General's request for an extension. Without it, Governor Quinn would have had less than a week to look over the proposal.

Gun owners over 21 can get a permit if they pay $150, take training and pass a mental health check. Many say they're looking forward to concealed-carry, but they're not happy they still have to wait.

The governor now has until July 9 to sign or veto the bill. The court said there would be no more extensions.
