According to the, The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has told Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan for the last time that she MUST honor the Constitution of the United States by doing away with her state’s ban on the concealed carry of firearms.

This is the final stop for the decision and IL now has four months to put in place a law allowing for concealed carry.

Gun rights groups are confident they can get “shall issue” legislation passes which means the state would be required to issue a permit to anyone who is not ineligible for one. This is different from “may issue” states which usually require the person requesting a permit to provide a reason for needing a permit.
