A federal appeals court has rejected a request from gun rights supporters to immediately allow lllinoisans to begin carrying concealed weapons.
The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals... which issued the initial ruling that ordered Illinois to pass a concealed carry law... turned down that request from 2nd Amendment supporters. They say the new concealed carry law is unconstitutional because it still forces Illinoisans to wait for months while a new permit process is implemented.
The justices on the appeals court do promise a speedy ruling on the merits of the case. But so far, no oral arguments in the case have been scheduled.
