No links at the moment, it's happening live in the Judiciary Committee hearings on CCW in Springfield. A representative from the Cook County States Attorney's office said that ONLY the Illinois Supreme Court has the authority to declare state laws unconstitutional. He claimed that the 7th Circuit can only issue an "advisory opinion" and is not binding. He went on to declare that, if no legislation was passed and the deadline passed, the Cook County States Attorney would continue to prosecuted under the barred law. The first representative to speak to the issue was one of the hard-core anti-gun Chicago Democrats. He warned the States Attorney's office to tread very, VERY carefully on declaring that they won't be bound by Federal courts. This could turn into a MUCH bigger fight than just concealed carry.
