7th Circuit Strikes Down Illinois Ban on Concealed Carry

Illinois gun owners have won a victory, and all that remains is to see whether the state appeals the decision and Illinois residents have to wait until the Supreme Court settles it, to join 49 other states that have some form of concealed carry.  This from Fox News:

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals announced Tuesday that state lawmakers have 180 days to write a new law that legalizes concealed carry.
The Illinois Attorney General said she is reviewing the ruling and will comment later today.  Congratulations to the Second Amendment Foundation and the Illinois State Rifle Association, who brought the suit along with former corrections officer Michael Moore of Champaign, farmer Charles Hooks of Percy, Illinois.  You can download and read the decision here.
