Man, these state bureaucrats do not like being told to follow the Constitution.

Kinda called it on this one, but it wasn’t hard to foresee since it is the Illinois way. Stall, obfuscate, ask for more hearings, rinse, repeat as needed until the deadline has passed. Then act surprised that nothing has been done and begin the process again while asking for more time. Over and over and over. They act like kids. Ignore it long enough and it goes away or everyone forgets. Don’t think this one will go away.

From the linked article: "... the Madigan statement said. “Significantly, in today’s decision, four of the 7th Circuit judges have provided a clear framework to guide the legislature in drafting a new law. "

What legal nonsense.

Madigan is suggesting that the framework offered by the DISSENTING judges are the guidelines for a Constitutionally acceptable law in Illinois. Without having read the original Posner decision, I would hazard a guess that this "framework" is not going to be acceptable.

The idea that the government can decide whether one has good cause to exercise a right is laughable. Even the People's Republik of Kalifornia typically justified its infringements in court by being able to claim that there is no individual right to keep and bear arms. Since the Heller and McDonald decisions, that is no longer true.

Any day Lisa Madigan gets rebuked is a good day.

From one of the left-wing dissenters: ““The Supreme Court has not yet decided whether .. the individual right to keep and bear arms at home under the Second Amendment extends beyond the home,” Hamilton wrote.”

That shouldn’t be too hard. It’s the right to “keep and bear” arms. Bear means to carry. I can’t imagine the founders were talking about carrying your guns around the house.
