John Jackson, owner of Capitol City Arms Supply in Springfield, Ill., holds a handgun at his business Wednesday, July 10, 2013. Jackson says his business has spiked since the federal appeals court late last year tossed out Illinois' concealed-carry ban, and his phone has been ringing off the hook with calls from customers wanting to make use of his shop's indoor shooting range and related training Months of debate about Illinois' last-in-the-nation ban on concealed carry came to an end when lawmakers narrowly beat a federal court deadline and adopted a carry law over Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn's objections, shifting the focus to how to carry out the new law across the state's 102 counties. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman)
