Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has filed for a 30-day stay (extension) of the 7th Circuit of Appeals’ injunction giving the legislature 180 days to pass a concealed carry law or face invalidation of the state’s current ban on concealed carry. [Click here for the pdf.] In other words, Madigan’s trying to buy time for Governor Quinn to modify/kill the concealed carry bill recently passed by the Illinois state legislature. That bill isn’t ideal; the list of prohibited places makes Utah’s alcohol restrictions seem libertine and the various fees will have a distinctly disinhibitory effect. But there’s a lot to like (e.g. no Chicago carve-out, “safe harbor” provisions and restaurant carry). Here’s hoping the 7th Circuit will tell Madigan to FOAD and instruct Quinn to piss or get off the pot. So to speak.
