Concealed-carry test vote in Springfield

Illinois State House Democrats passed a series of test votes on gun control and concealed-carry rights.

Right now, Illinois is the only state that prohibits concealed-carry.  And a federal appeals court is requiring the state to legalize it by the end of June.

But House Democrats have are taking issues one by one.

In a test vote, they voted to ban guns in schools, libraries, hospitals, sports stadiums, amusement parks, and on public transportation.  Republicans called their actions a political stunt.

It’s unclear whether any of those proposals will ever become law.
