I mean, it COULD be challenged, of course, but it was all done straight up according to the law of IL. If they hadn't wanted to overrule the Home Rule authority, we would have had CCW 3 years ago.
And the good news keeps on coming... There may be hope for IL yet -- it's just tough for me to overcome my own cynicism that is reinforced with such matters as "The Chicago Way."
