      Madigan wants time to review conceal carry law

      Illinois' Attorney wants more time to decide whether to fight back against a court mandated conceal carry ban for the state.

      The court ruled in December that Illinois' concealed carry ban was unconstitutional.

      It gave lawmakers until June 9 to fix the problem by passing a conceal carry law.

      Madigan spokeswoman Natalie Bauer said that Madigan filed a petition Monday asking for an extension until June 24.

      The extension would allow Madigan more time to carefully review a possible appeal drafted by her lawyers. Lawmakers are currently arguing over what a concealed carry law would look like.
