IL Under the Gun.....

Two separate lawsuits filed against the state today.

The NRA has filed Shepard v. Madigan in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois

and

The Second Amendment Foundation filed on behalf of Michael Moore of Champaign and Charles Hooks of Percy against Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and State Police Superintendent Patrick Keen in U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois.

Last week, IL Rep Brandon Phelps warned on the floor that if HB0148 didn't pass, then it would be settled in the courts, where they would be less willing to compromise than he's been.

The bill didn't pass (yet). Welcome to round two.
