IL Concealed Carry Ban Ruled Unconstitutional

Shepard/Moore v Madigan came down today w/ a MAJOR bitchslap to the anti-gunners.

From the decision via the ISRA Alert:
The theoretical and empirical evidence (which overall is inconclusive) is consistent with concluding that a right to carry firearms in public may promote self-defense. Illinoishad to provide us with more than merely a rational basis for believing that its uniquely sweeping ban is justified by an increase in public safety. It has failed to meet this burden. 
So now the legislature has 180 days to try and screw us over leading to more lawsuits visa-vi the way Chicago handled McDonald.

I'm a realist.

Well. No matter what happens, in 180 days, all 50 US states will have some form of concealed carry.

That's something to be happy about right?

Illinois is almost certain to request en banc review and probably then seek review by SCOTUS citing Kachalsky v. County of Westchester as a basis for a split in the Circuits. In the interim the mandate will be stayed pending the decision of the full 7th Cir and then a decision by SCOTUS. Laddy boy is very upset and confused because the decision was from Posner... LOL

Crazy idea, they like being illegal in a strangly legal way, what if they did open carry, but made the restrictions so foul that you would be tackled if you tried to by the local cops every time.
