Regardless of Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Governor Pat Quinn’s objections, the Illinois House passed a conceal carry law Friday afternoon.

The bill, which would end Illinois’ run as the last state without such a law, is backed by House Speaker Michael Madigan.

Just before the House voted, he touted the bill’s mental health checks, which require law enforcement and health industry workers to report anyone with a mental disability making that person ineligible to buy a gun.

The bill sets up statewide standards in lieu of local gun laws, which has become one of the most contentious parts of the proposed law.

It now moves to the Senate where it’s expected to meet fierce opposition from President John Cullerton.
