They have until June 8 to legalize the concealed carry of firearms, which would make Concealed carry legal in all 50 states.

Thanks for posting. This is definitely worth further analysis. It was a very close 5-4 decision, which just shows how important judicial appointments and Presidential elections are. The 7th US Circuit of Appeals currently has 10 judges. One of them sat this case out. The 5 pro-Second Amendment judges in this decision were all appointed by President Reagan and President George W Bush. The 4 dissenting judges were appointed by President Obama (1), President Clinton (2) and President George H W Bush (1). The dissenting opinion was written by Judge David Hamilton, who is the one judge that was appointed by President Obama.

Back in December, 3 judges from this same court ruled 2-1 that Illinois legislators had to craft and pass concealed carry legislation within 180 days. In that decision there were 2 Reagan appointees who supported the Second Amendment and 1 Clinton appointee who didn't. The liberal Democrat Attorney General of Illinois then requested that the entire court (all 10 judges this time) reconsider that decision. In Friday's 5-4 decision the court denied her request and stuffed the Democrat assault on the Second Amendment in Illinois. Her only option now is appeal to the US Supreme Court.

What does this mean for Second Amendment supporters? It seems pretty darn obvious to me. If you vote to send a Democrat to the White House then you are part of the problem. Illinois Second Amendment supporters and concealed carry advocates better thank their lucky stars that President Reagan and the 2nd President Bush had an opportunity to put 5 judges on the 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals during their terms. However, the problem is that many of the Reagan judges are getting very old and will be retiring in the near future. Guess who will be nominating the judges to replace them? Once nominated, these judges stay on the court for a LONG time. For the next 10, 20, 30+ years we will be dealing with the fallout of Obama having 8 years to put liberal, ant-Second Amendment judges on our Nation's courts. This is reason #1467 why liberals and Obama voters suck.

All good info Vermin93, I hope this appeal does go to the SCOTUS...and I am sure it will. With the certainty that Obama will nominate liberal judges, we need this to go to the Supreme court now for any shot at a favorable ruling.
