    Illinois Supremes issue major affirmation of 2A

    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.

    “As the Seventh Circuit correctly noted, neither Heller nor McDonald expressly limits the Second Amendment’s protections to the home,” Thomas wrote for the court. “On the contrary, both decisions contain language strongly suggesting if not outright confirming that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms extends beyond the home.”



    Could those judges please relocate to Oregon please? We need their incite here in Multnomah County desperately.

    Does that mean the firearms could be loaded as well? Yeppie!!!!!

    So is there legal recourse for those who were denied their fight to carry, due to unconstitutional gun laws, and were victims of violent crime? If you don't hit the City in the wallet, they don't get it!

    Keep that ruling for future battles.
    What worries me is the potential for a change of the SCOTUS lineup.
    Obunga has to go!

    Super Rham is walking a little bowlegged today due to having an amendment (the 2nd one) jammed up his liberal little bunghole. Sawed off little peckerhead accepted it quite well actually.
    Makes you wonder how deep his nose will be imbedded in Barry's asss from now one.
