IL AG requests full court hearing on CCW
Illinois attorney general Lisa Madigan has requested the full 10 member appellate court to hear the NRA and SAF challenge to Illinois's ban on the carrying of all weapons. While expected, the chances for success of an appeal are limited. This appeal also doesn't impact the timeline set forth by the original decision that gives lawmakers until June 2013 to implement a constitutional law. If the lawmakers do not, the state's law will be struck down and carry by anyone with a FOID will become legal.
