    Illinois Supremes say 2A extends outside home

    Ya gotta love those guys....better late than never





    The Illinois Supreme Court, citing federal gun rights cases won by the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation, today ruled unanimously that a section of state gun law violated the constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and affirmed that this right extends outside the home.

    This is the first State Supreme Court to uphold the 2nd outside the home. It will really mess up some politicians' plans.
    Today, folks in Chicago can carry their concealed sidearms, Open-Carry sidearms, Rifles & Shotguns on Main Street, Legally.
    The LEOs will be having Heart-Attacks! LOL (they are not trained to deal with "FREE PEOPLE".

    Since the IL State Police will be regulating the CPL process, unnecessary at the moment, the local Counties & Cities may have no say regarding 'Restrictions'.... it will be interesting to see this evolve.

    They may as well say it, since the SCOTUS already has and they know they will be over-ruled anyway if they don't.

    The LEOs won't be having heart attacks...haven't met too many police officers who are anti-2nd Amendment...unfortunately, the politicians are the bosses and the police their pawns much of the time.

    The Chicago Police Chief stated his Officers would Shoot CPL Citizens if they ever needed to pull their sidearms.
    I was a State Trooper (Detroit Area) for 40 years and was assigned to Firearm Training & Trooper Quals. LEOs are also Citizens and subject to 'Higher Standards' than other Citizens in a shoot.
    When I was Lt-Det, 95% of my command was Pro-Gun and 2nd Amend.

    Chicago City Chief says his Dept is different.........(LOL)........We shall soon see if his 'THREATS' are real.
    Personally, I think the clown is an Idiot Politician. But, He said it (Chicago Sun, IIRC).

    Just a side note Justice Robert Thomas used to be a kicker for the Chicago Bears. He is a good conservative.
