The only inaccuracy in this story, and in the text of the decision, is the statement that only IL bans concealed carry. In fact, in reality so do many parts of NY, and MD and NJ require that the applicant have an immediate , personal threat: perhaps a signed promise from a thug announcing the time and place of proposed attack, before they will consider issuing a permit. MA has also moved to this position, although their police are in some localities so corrupt that it is difficult to tell how the law will be applied.
Another issue with these states is, will they issue to non-residents, or allow any sort of reciprocity. A persons 2nd Amendment rights should not end just because he or she is outside the state of residence.

Nonetheless, the 7th Circuit decision is good. Note that the two judges in favor were Reagan appointees, and the one against was an appointee of Clinton.
