Hatcher statement on Gov. Quinn’s amendatory veto of the concealed carry compromise

State Rep. Kay Hatcher, R-Yorkville, released the following statement today after Gov. Quinn used his amendatory veto authority to significantly alter the concealed carry compromise passed overwhelmingly by both the Illinois House and Senate this spring.

“House Bill 183 passed by the General Assembly was a good, responsible compromise that was carefully crafted to protect both law abiding gun owners’ Constitutional rights and the safety of our communities. It’s unfortunate that the governor has chosen to dismantle key provisions and leave us with a plan that will once again leave the state infringing on 2nd Amendment rights and will create a hodge-podge of differing firearm rules and regulations from community to community,” Hatcher said. “I fully expect the House and Senate to vote on motions to override the Governor’s changes.”
