Supreme Court's pass on gun case good for Illinois, Quinn says

SPRINGFIELD -- Gov. Pat Quinn says it's "good news" for Illinois that the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to stay out of the gun debate in New York.
The justices declined Monday to hear a challenge to a strict New York law making it difficult to get a license to carry a concealed handgun in public.
In Illinois, lawmakers are crafting guidelines for concealed carry after a federal appeals court said Illinois' concealed carry ban was unconstitutional. Lawmakers have until early June to come up with a law.
Quinn wants Madigan to appeal to the Supreme Court. She's said she'll see what lawmakers do and hasn't decided yet.
New York has some of the strictest gun laws in the country and Quinn says it's a model for other states.
