Woman arrested for gun in Chicago's Daley Center

By

An Indiana woman was arrested in Chicago last week after bringing a loaded gun into a Cook County office building.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart's office says 38-year-old Ana Claudia Gomez was taken into custody Friday after police discovered a semi-automatic handgun in her purse during a security screening at Chicago's Daley Center. Police say the gun was loaded with seven bullets.

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.
