    •  Moore v. Madigan. (0+ / 0-)

      That quote from Posner was the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals decision in favor of striking down Illinois' concealed carry ban.

        about one state's carry permit being valid in another state. I suspect there are a few hundred, or thousands, more words that speak to the unconstitutionality of the IL concealed carry ban. Universal conceal carry is separate from a ban in one state that may have any number of defects that warrant overturning the law.
