    Illinois is now the only state in the union to ban people from carrying concealed weapons. Wisconsin's governor signed a law Friday allowing concealed carry. With the governor's signature on the bill, Wisconsin became the 49th state to allow concealed carry.

    Mm yep and if the IL courts keep up the attitude they have right now, before long we'll be the 5th constitution carry state.

    Here's what I what meant about constitution carry. Take the time to read the memo supporting the notion. Folks I bet the IL GA fence sitters are scrambling to come up with a compromise on a shall issue bill to pass because if they don't and this court decision goes our way we will have constitution carry by February. They have to be getting nervous.

    SAF FILES FOR PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION AGAINST ILLINOIS CARRY BAN
    For Immediate Release: 7/7/2011

    Capitalizing on its federal appeals court victory Wednesday in Ezell v. City of Chicago, the Second Amendment Foundation today moved for a preliminary injunction against the State of Illinois to prevent further enforcement of that state?s prohibitions on firearms carry in public by law-abiding citizens.

    The motion was filed in U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois in Springfield. Joining SAF in this motion are Illinois Carry and four private citizens, Michael Moore, Charles Hooks, Peggy Fechter and Jon Maier. The underlying case is known as Moore v. Madigan.

    Illinois is the only state in the nation with such prohibitions. The state neither allows open carry or concealed carry, which runs afoul of recent U.S. Supreme Court Second Amendment rulings, including last year?s landmark ruling in McDonald v. City of Chicago, another SAF case. SAF was represented in McDonald and Ezell by attorney Alan Gura, who noted after yesterday?s appeals court win ? forcing a temporary injunction against the city?s ban on gun ranges that the city immediately changed after the decision was announced ? that ?Even Chicago politicians must respect the people?s fundamental civil rights?Gun rights are coming to Chicago. The only question is how much the city?s intransigence will cost taxpayers along the way.?

    ?Now that the Seventh Circuit has recognized that the deprivation of the right of armed self-defense is an inherently irreparable injury, it is clear that Illinois? law-abiding gun owners are entitled to a protective injunction,? said attorney David Jensen of New York, who, along with Glen Ellyn, IL attorney David Sigale, is representing SAF and the other plaintiffs.

    ?Yesterday?s win was a wake-up call to Chicago,? said SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. ?Today?s motion is a signal to the Illinois Legislature that the state?s total ban on carrying of firearms for personal protection is counter to both Supreme Court rulings on the Second Amendment, and yesterday?s ruling by the Seventh Circuit appeals panel that shredded Chicago?s gun ordinance. Our victory Wednesday and today?s motion are key components of SAF?s overall mission to win back firearms freedoms one lawsuit at a time.?

    Hey Drylok, been hearing stuff on the radio and the news about some sort of gun control measure legislation to come out of pres osama's house in the future. Have you heard of anything brewing?

    It isn't going to be legislation because he can't get the votes in the house. It will be a mandate or a regulation of sorts through the back door. We're not quite sure what they're up to but Berry told one of the brady campaign people that they are "working on their concerns under the radar"
    I don't sweat the federal stuff, especially after Heller and McDonald. That the 2A is an individual right (Heller) and a fundamental right (McDonald) pretty well puts a fork in the antis at the federal level.
    It doesn't mean that we should back down or not keep up our NRA dues but rather our focus is coming off of the feds and more and more onto states and local municipalities.

    Thanks for clearing that up, I was wondering what was going on. I wont never let my guard down, after 2008 I think America got a wake-up call and learned a lesson.

    Nothing will ever really happen at the federal level, they just have to do some grand standing and make some speeches and calls for this or that just to keep the left leaning, gun control, democrats happy.
