Gomez has a license to carry in Indiana and told officers she forgot the gun was in her purse. She was charged with unlawful use of a weapon.

Illinois is the last state in the nation not to allow concealed carry.

Lawmakers will vote on the issue again Tuesday in Springfield after Gov. Pat Quinn made changes to a proposal they approved in May.
