Busy week in the state of Illinois for gun owners.... Things kicked off with a Federal court ruling in Ezell v. Chicago, stating that Chicago WAY overstepped their bounds in the new law that said you HAD to have range training, but couldn't have a range in Chicago. Building on the 7th Circuit in the above case saying that any violations on the 2nd Amendment rights cause irreparable damage, the Second Amendment Foundation on Thursday filed for a preliminary injunction in the US Court for the Central District in IL that, if approved, would bar IL LEO from enforcing the band on carrying weapons by any legal, FOID-holding member of the public. Open, Concealed, training, none, it doesn't matter. NRA thought this sounded like a good idea, so today (Friday), in the US Court for the SOUTHERN District of IL, they also filed a request for injunction asking for the same thing. Rep Brandon Phelps, D-Harrisburg, told his colleagues in the IL House if they didn't pass CCW law - one burdened with limits and restrictions already - then it would be decided in the courts, and the courts wouldn't offer to negotiate the details like he had. Seems Mr. Phelps is a pretty smart guy.... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
