The Illinois Supreme Court delivered a win to Second Amendment advocates in the Prairie State, striking down stringent gun control laws last week in favor of the right to bear arms.
The state’s Supreme Court handed down a 7-0 ruling in the case People v. Aguilar late last week, holding state laws prohibiting citizens from carrying firearms are a violation of the Second Amendment. The laws previously barred Illini from carrying a gun outside of their home or business and were deemed unconstitutional.
…Illinois is known for its strict gun control laws, especially since falling under the leadership of Govs. Rod Blagojevich (D) and Pat Quinn (D). According to Breitbart, it is unknown whether or not Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan will petition the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case.
My guess is they won’t, for fear of losing yet again, and legalizing the right to carry nationwide.
