The poll is about 1/3 page down on the right column.
A federal appeals court Tuesday struck down Illinois ban on carrying concealed weapons. Do you agree or disagree with the courts decision paving the way for legalized concealed carry in the state?
Thank you for your vote. Agree 100%

All laws infringing the 2nd amendment should be struck down.
Furthermore I think people living in states with strict gun control laws should be able to sue for having their civil rights violated by such laws, and that the politicians who passed those laws should pay the claims personally as restitution.

It looks like the fat's in the fire for Presser at last. This one's going up to the Supremes, guaranteed.
That'll be tough in the case of Illinois. The politicians responsible for Illinois's abrogation of 2A lived in the 1870's, and they had a Supreme Court decision backing them up.
At least the other side is jammed right now, having to appeal this decision to a Court not yet reshaped to Barky's liking (nine white-hating lesbian Communists or something). They'd much rather wait, I'm sure, but the appeals court is forcing their hand.
FORGET ABOUT IT ALLL!
Barry will soon have his 2nd WISE LATINA (or queer) on the SCOTUS and it will then be THE END OF THE SECOND AMMENDMENT.
(And a likely civil war, to boot.)
The Illinois AG will very likely appeal this to SCOTUS chop-chop. The timing is a lot snappier than what Barry Soetoro would like, but there it is.
And if he tries to screw with this case, the Supremes might just prorogate like they did with the Rat Party's attempt (successful in the end) to knock Texas out of this year's GOP Primary cycle by pettifogging and delaying the primary with a bunch of petty-b.s. vexatious pleading in federal court before a forum-shopped 'Rat judge.
Race baiting at the Pantagraph?

This morning I was reviewing the Pantagraph website. Not because they are very informative or interesting, I wanted to see how the recent court ruling regarding CCW in Illinois would be reported.. Imagine my surprise when I saw the following next to the article talking about the courts decision.. By the Numbers, who owns guns in Illinois By Kurt Erickson | email@example.com. The article goes on to explain that 77% of FOID card holders are white men. Then they go on to list blacks at 8.7% and other at 5.5%....
Let’s go FRiends!! Show your support. Yeah, and hell yeah.

I live in California a VERY anti-gun state : (
Well where it applies, let it.
Any politician sponsoring or voting for the violation of civil rights should be held accountable for such personally.

What’s your view on the concealed-carry ruling for Illinois?
It’s right on; let’s allow it.
It’s OK; let’s allow it with the right conditions.
It follows the 2nd Amendment, but let’s severely limit it.
It’s dangerous; let’s not allow it all.
