Appeals Court Throws Out Illinois Concealed Carry Ban


A federal appeals court has ruled that Illinois’s ban on carrying concealed weapons is unconstitutional… and has given the state 180 days to write a new law to allow citizens to carry weapons for self-defense. 

 

The ruling in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals finds that the state failed to show that its outright ban on concealed carry serves a public safety purpose that justifies the limits its places on law-abiding citizens. 

 

The justices say the state must now come up with a law to permit carrying a concealed firearm… one that can contain reasonable limitations, but which must not infringe on the Second Amendment rights of Illinois citizens.
