Federal Appeals Court Says Illinois Must Allow Concealed Carry

Supporters of the right to carry a concealed weapon say the fight is over… and they won.


A federal appeals court has thrown out Illinois’s ban on concealed carry, and ordered lawmakers to craft a law that permits the practice within 180 days.


The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals says the state failed to show any public safety benefits of the concealed carry ban that outweigh the Second Amendment rights of citizens.


The justices say the legislature must now design a law that protects those rights, within “reasonable” limitations.


Attorney General Lisa Madigan has not decided whether to appeal the ruling.
