They will model their concealed-carry statute on New York City’s rules. Don’t expect “shall issue” CCW to come from this.
I certainly do. I see no indication in Heller or McDonald which would allow the government to decide whether any individual had a good reason to bear arms. Such individuals have a RIGHT to bear arms and need provide no reason.
Illinois may attempt to create widespread "sensitive places" and they may attempt to create classes of people who can't get a permit. These issues will have to be litigated again, perhaps, but the vast majority of people are going to get permits.
One step at a time. Next step is challenging "may issue".
“They will model their concealed-carry statute on New York Citys rules. Dont expect shall issue CCW to come from this.”
I disagree. Of course Illannoy will do what they can to frustrate the right to bear arms, but the may-issue game is about to die as well; there is a court decision in MD that is turning that game on it’s ear.
More importantly, the culture has shifted. Guns are very popular right now and politicians outside of the bluest areas aren’t interested in getting in the way.
they’ll make it so expensive and so much paper work there that many will say screw this
