Illinois Appeals Court Giving State Time to Implement Concealed Carry


The appeals court that ordered Illinois to pass a concealed carry law seems inclined to give the state time to implement the law.

 

Attorneys for the original plaintiff in the concealed carry case went back before the justices last week to argue that a ramp-up period of months continues to violate the constitutional rights of gun owners.

 

But the judge who wrote the original opinion told those lawyers that the state has done what it was ordered to do, and an implementation period does not violate that order.

 

In audio posted on Rich Miller’s Capitol Fax blog, Judge Richard Posner told the attorneys that the Constitution does not require allowing untrained people to carry guns in public.
