The Patriot Post reported today that the Second Amendment Foundation reports that “the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals let stand a December ruling by a three-judge panel of the court that forces Illinois to adopt a concealed carry law, thus affirming that the right to bear arms exists outside the home.”
In December, Judge Richard Posner gave the Illinois legislature 180 days to “craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment … on the carrying of guns in public.”
Unfortunately, Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan showed his contempt for constitutional Liberty by crafting and introducing a repugnant concealed carry bill.
In Madigan’s world, before obtaining a permit, gun owners would have to purchase $1 million in liability insurance coverage, undergo 40 hours of police-conducted training including 20 hours of range time (just imagine the cost of ammunition), and submit to a mandatory psychological evaluation.
Remember citizens of Illinois, you voted for these dictators. Madigan’s daughter Lisa, Attorney General of Illinois, was the one who appealed to the U.S Court of Appeals, 7th Circuit en banc asking the entire court to review and overturn the three-judge panel’s ruling in December. Being against the 2nd Amendment or more specifically, concealed carry, must run in the Madigan family and for that matter, all Chicago politicians.
