Illinois Granted More Time to Appeal Concealed Carry Case

As discussed in a previous blog post, last year the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals declared Illinois' concealed carry ban unconstitutional.  The Court gave the State six months to fix the law consistent with its opinion.  That deadline is fast approaching - June 9th - and the General Assembly still has not passed a law addressing the Court's concerns.   Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan recently requested additional time from the U.S. Supreme Court to decide whether the State would appeal the Seventh Circuit ruling.  On May 2, 2013, the Supreme Court granted her request, giving the State until June 24th to file its appeal.  The Supreme Court's grant of extra time for the appeal does not, however, extend the time for the General Assembly to lift the current concealed carry ban.
