Highlights I grabbed from reading....


Quote:
Both Heller and McDonald do say that “the need
for defense of self, family, and property is most acute”
in the home, id. at 3036 (emphasis added); 554 U.S. at
628, but that doesn’t mean it is not acute outside the home.
Heller repeatedly invokes a broader Second
Amendment right than the right to have a gun in
one’s home, as when it says that the amendment
“guarantee[s] the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation.” 554 U.S. at 592.
Confrontations are not limited to the home.
Quote:
The Second Amendment states in its entirety that “a
well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security
of a free State, the right of the people to keep and
bear Arms, shall not be infringed” (emphasis added).
The right to “bear” as distinct from the right to “keep”
arms is unlikely to refer to the home. To speak of “bearing”
arms within one’s home would at all times have been
an awkward usage. A right to bear arms thus implies
a right to carry a loaded gun outside the home.
Quote:
Moreover, there is no reason to expect Illinois
to impose minimal permit restrictions on carriage
of guns outside the home, for obviously this is not a state
that has a strong pro-gun culture, unlike the
states that began allowing concealed carriage before Heller
and MacDonald enlarged the scope of Second Amendment
rights.
Quote:
A blanket prohibition on carrying gun in public
prevents a person from defending himself anywhere
except inside his home; and so substantial a curtailment
of the right of armed self-defense requires a
greater showing of justification than merely that the
public might benefit on balance from such a curtailment,
though there is no proof it would.

Quote:
We are disinclined to engage in another round of historical
analysis to determine whether eighteenth-century
America understood the Second Amendment to include
a right to bear guns outside the home. The Supreme
Court has decided that the amendment confers
a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as
important outside the home as inside. The theoretical
and empirical evidence (which overall is inconclusive)
is consistent with concluding that a right to
carry firearms in public may promote self-defense. Illinois
had to provide us with more than merely a rational basis
for believing that its uniquely sweeping ban is justified
by an increase in public safety. It has failed to meet
this burden. The Supreme Court’s interpretation of
the Second Amendment therefore compels us to reverse
the decisions in the two cases before us and remand
Nos. 12-1269, 12-1788 21
them to their respective district courts for the entry
of dec la ra tions of unconst itut ional it y and
permanent injunctions. Nevertheless we order our mandate
stayed for 180 days to allow the Illinois
legislature to craft a new gun law that will
impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public
safety and the Second Amendment as interpreted in
this opinion, on the carrying of guns in public.

Wow. This answers the question of what is the LAST thing I expected to read today. Congrats, guys, and GOOD JOB to those of you who were fighting on behalf of this one.

Curious... This decision, based on the highlights posted in this thread, calls a blanket prohibition unconstitutional based on the concept of bearing arms. What will this mean for Chicago, in particular, and on a broader scale, NYC, New Jersey, etc???

Hey NJ Scumbag Democrats, YOU LOSE! This is coming to us next and you can't stop it! If it can happen in Illinois, it can happen anywhere.

That's exactly why the Illinois Attorney General cannot appeal to the Supreme court.

If she did and then lost(as she would) then this decision would affect every State.

Win-win for Illinois and well crafted attack plan by the NRA and SAF

I feel like a kid at Christmas again

Now as long as they don't screw up the requirements and accept reciprocity from other surrounding states.

We'll know for sure in six months.

But for now I'm just savoring the moment. I thought it could never happen. The last State for CCW and no high capacity bans either.

The moment you get your permit, strap on a five seven with a 30 rd mag or maybe a G19 with a 33 rd mag. Just because you can. It'd be worth buying the gun, magazine, and ammo.

Read the Court Opinion and Order.

If they don't pass a fair concealed carry bill (we have enough votes in both the Senate and House to block a bad one) then constitutional carry kicks in State wide on June 9, 2013.

This is awesome. Hopefully my buddy in Chicago will be able to carry come late spring. However, as a Wisconsinite, I know not to celebrate until it's a reality. The scumbag politicians still have a few chances at a hail mary. Also being from Wisconsin, they're better be reciprocity. I hate driving through Chicago, let alone unarmed.

Then doesn't it make sense for that contingent in the house and senate to just block ANY bill regarding a CCW system until constitutional carry kicks in? It would seem that dragging their feet and voting no on anything would be the best response possible.

That is, unless they can get shall issue with preemption of local laws.

Shall Issue with Preemption is actually already on the table, and very nearly passed 19 months ago. Due to the preemption, it has to have a super-majority to pass (71 votes) and the vote was called off with 65 "Yay" votes (and would have gotten 68). Since it was a few short, it was put on hold, but it's still waiting in the wings. (This is Illinois HB0148 if you care to read it all)
