Court won't reconsider Illinois concealed carry ruling

A federal appeals court won't reconsider an earlier ruling that Illinois' concealed carry ban is unconstitutional.

A three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Illinois' ban in December and gave lawmakers until June 8 to legalize the concealed carry of firearms.

Attorney General Lisa Madigan asked for all 10 judges to review the decision, saying it conflicted with decisions by other federal appellate courts and goes beyond what the U.S. Supreme Court has held.

Illinois is the only state in the nation that still has a ban in place.


Looks a like a big victory for you guys, now I hope you can get a very good CC bill passed, time those thugs in chicago get a does of their own medicine.

What do you wanna bet they won't create a scheme with any reciprocity with any other state?
I was thinking to visit Illinois this spring, but when all is said and done, only law abiding citizens are denied carry.
