State lawmakers talk Illinois gun law reform in Springfield

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (FOX 32 News) -

State lawmakers are getting down to business in Springfield Tuesday, regarding state gun law reform.

A house judiciary committee heard testimony from both sides of the issue as they worked to comply with a federal appeals court ruling on gun law reform.

In December, the court found Illinois' restrictions on carrying a gun in public unconstitutional.

The court gave the General Assembly until June 9 to change the law.
