BREAKING: U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals Strikes Down IL Concealed Carry Ban

In the cases of Moore and Shepherd, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has just ruled that Illinois’ ban on concealed carry violates the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. From the decision [click here to read]: “The Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Second Amendment therefore compels us to reverse the decisions in the two cases before us and remand them to their respective district courts for the entry of declarations of unconstitutionality and permanent injunctions. Nevertheless we order our mandate stayed for 180 days to allow the Illinois legislature to craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment as interpreted in this opinion, on the carrying of guns in public.” Reasonable limitations consistent with public safety? Uh-oh. Or not, as the NRA’s man on the ground told TTAG. Separate post to follow . . .
