Yesterday the shall-issue bill failed to get the 71 votes needed to get pre-emption or make it veto-proof or over-ride home rule or something like that. I don't know, I just read that the bill needed 71 votes and only got 64. I can't understand Illinois politics, on the same day, a may-issue bill failed.
So they don't want may-issue and they don't want shall-issue. Does that mean they want constitutional carry, handing the cities and county government all the authority for gun regulations?
It seems that it's a dysfunctional legislature that relies on courts to create or delimit it's legal framework.
If that's the case - the cities in Illinois will probably be generating all sorts of new 2A cases in the near future.
