suit challenges illinois ban on carrying w/o a permit
It's Sheppard v. Madigan, filed in US District Court by NRA and ISRA. Press release here. Lead plaintiff is nicely chosen -- a church treasurer who was beaten and seriously injured while unable to carry a gun.
Sorry to hear that happened to her, but hopefully some good can come of it. Now that IL is the last state to have a complete ban on carrying, it's firmly in the crosshairs.
Oh wait, new civility! I can't say "in the crosshairs".
