    They have given the State legislature 180 days to come up with a law permitting concealed carry by residents:

    Congratulations guys and gals. I couldn't be happier for you.

    You have another Constitutional right affirmed. (as it should be)

    Wow. This answers the question of what is the LAST thing I expected to read today. Congrats, guys, and GOOD JOB to those of you who were fighting on behalf of this one.

    Curious... This decision, based on the highlights posted in this thread, calls a blanket prohibition unconstitutional based on the concept of bearing arms. What will this mean for Chicago, in particular, and on a broader scale, NYC, New Jersey, etc???

    Hey NJ Scumbag Democrats, YOU LOSE! This is coming to us next and you can't stop it! If it can happen in Illinois, it can happen anywhere.

    That's exactly why the Illinois Attorney General cannot appeal to the Supreme court.

    If she did and then lost(as she would) then this decision would affect every State.

    Win-win for Illinois and well crafted attack plan by the NRA and SAF

    Great news! Now I just hope they can write a reasonable CCW law and not some crap like they have in Kalifornia.

    I feel like a kid at Christmas again :cheerleader:

    Now as long as they don't screw up the requirements and accept reciprocity from other surrounding states.

    We'll know for sure in six months.

    But for now I'm just savoring the moment. I thought it could never happen. The last State for CCW and no high capacity bans either.

    The moment you get your permit, strap on a five seven with a 30 rd mag or maybe a G19 with a 33 rd mag. Just because you can. It'd be worth buying the gun, magazine, and ammo.

    Great news!!:supergrin: But and this is a big but! Does anyone think the Uber Liberals in IL are going to make it easy for you to get a permit to carry? Really? I bet now you can forget recipatory of any other states permit. Heck I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Rom say go **** yourself 7 th curcuit! Also wouldn't be a bit surprised if King Obamamoa/Holder didn't step in some how! Time will tell!:whistling:

    Read the Court Opinion and Order.

    If they don't pass a fair concealed carry bill (we have enough votes in both the Senate and House to block a bad one) then constitutional carry kicks in State wide on June 9, 2013.

    This is awesome. Hopefully my buddy in Chicago will be able to carry come late spring. However, as a Wisconsinite, I know not to celebrate until it's a reality. The scumbag politicians still have a few chances at a hail mary. Also being from Wisconsin, they're better be reciprocity. I hate driving through Chicago, let alone unarmed.

    Then doesn't it make sense for that contingent in the house and senate to just block ANY bill regarding a CCW system until constitutional carry kicks in? It would seem that dragging their feet and voting no on anything would be the best response possible.

    That is, unless they can get shall issue with preemption of local laws. :)

    Shall Issue with Preemption is actually already on the table, and very nearly passed 19 months ago. Due to the preemption, it has to have a super-majority to pass (71 votes) and the vote was called off with 65 "Yay" votes (and would have gotten 68). Since it was a few short, it was put on hold, but it's still waiting in the wings. (This is Illinois HB0148 if you care to read it all)
