Interesting. The Chicago machine has a hornet's nest to deal with. I don't think the attorney general has even offered a response to this yet.
There are going to be a fair amount of police officers in Illinois who might be perplexed by this issue.

Though my reading of the opinion, they are right....it is unconstitutional TODAY, however, provided the state legislators 180 to construct a CCW bill.
I would agree just about any judge, outside of Chicago, would probably quash such a charge in lieu of this decision.
If I were the downstate reps, I'd push to abolish that FOID card too! JMHO
