Concealed Carry Ban Challenged in Sangamon County Court


A Springfield man wants charges against him dismissed in the wake of an appellate court ruling that struck down Illinois’s ban on carrying concealed weapons.

 

Donnell Jackson is charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon after police stopped him and found a gun hidden in his shirt.

 

Jackson’s attorney, Daniel Noll, says that since an appeals court has ordered the state to drop its ban and write a law to allow citizens to carry concealed firearms, the case against Jackson should be dropped.

 

Judge Leslie Graves is giving prosecutors two weeks to decide how they want to proceed.
