A Cook County court ruling against term limits, who'd a thunk it. The Cook County judges have to protect their buds who hand out the graft. I didn't read the opinion so on what basis they ruled the measure didn't meet "constitutional requirements" I don't know. But you can bet the progressive democrats will do everything they can to keep the measure off the ballot because it would…

Bush sat on his thumbs and watched the economy bleed jobs the last few months of his administration. Much of the downturn in the economy can be blamed on a law that Bush and fellow Repubs passed in late Sept 2001, allowing no security/ backing on some bonds. and he started the bank bail out process before he left office.

When I first saw the headline I thought it was a story about the $100,000 club in the Quincy School Board Administration. Well,--- we will catch up with the state soon.

Attorney General requests rehearing on concealed carry decision

1 year, 6 months ago by Paige Traeder

Madigan announced she has filed a petition for rehearing before the full U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals

Attorney General Lisa Madigan today announced she has filed a petition for rehearing before the full U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in lawsuits challenging the Illinois laws that prevent the carrying of ready-to-use firearms in public.
 
The Attorney General’s petition for a rehearing “en banc” is a request for all of the judges on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to review the case after a December decision by a three-judge panel of the court held that the state laws barring carrying ready-to-use firearms in public are unconstitutional.
 
Madigan’s petition was filed in lawsuits brought against the State of Illinois by Michael Moore,  Mary E. Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association, which allege that Illinois’ restrictions on the carrying of ready-to-use weapons in public violates their Second Amendment rights. The laws had previously been upheld by two separate federal district courts in Illinois.
 
In its December decision, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals set a 180-day deadline for the Illinois legislature to draft and enact new laws relating to carrying ready-to-use firearms in public.  Today’s petition for rehearing by the Attorney General does not affect that deadline.
 
Madigan issued the following statement regarding her decision to seek a rehearing:
 
“In ruling that Illinois must allow individuals to carry ready-to-use firearms in public, the 7th Circuit Court’s decision goes beyond what the U.S. Supreme Court has held and conflicts with decisions by two other federal appellate courts.  Based on those decisions, it is appropriate to ask the full 7th Circuit to review this case and consider adopting an approach that is consistent with the other appellate courts that have addressed these issues after the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark Heller and McDonalddecisions.”
