"The Second Amendment Foundation [Friday] won a significant victory for concealed carry when the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals let stand a December ruling by a three-judge panel of the court that forces Illinois to adopt a concealed carry law, thus affirming that the right to bear arms exists outside the home. The ruling came in Moore v. Madigan, a case filed by SAF. The December opinion that now stands was written by Judge Richard Posner, who gave the Illinois legislature 180 days to 'craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment ... on the carrying of guns in public.' That clock is ticking, noted SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. 'Illinois lawmakers need to create some kind of licensing system or face the prospect of not having any regulations at all when Judge Posner's deadline arrives,' Gottlieb said. 'They need to act. They can no longer run and hide from this mandate.' 'We were delighted with Judge Posner's ruling in December ... and [Friday's] decision by the entire circuit to allow his ruling to stand is a major victory, and not just for gun owners in Illinois. Judge Posner's ruling affirmed that the right to keep and bear arms, itself, extends beyond the boundary of one's front door.' ... The ruling also affects a similar case filed by the National Rifle Association known as Shepard v. Madigan." --The Second Amendment Foundation
