Illinois State Rifle Association Asks Court to Let Illinoisans Carry Guns Now
Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association filed a motion for an injunction Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for southern Illinois. Shepard's motion says gun owners should not have to wait to carry because of Illinois lawmakers' "procrastination."
A federal appeals court ruled in December that it's unconstitutional for Illinois to continue prohibiting concealed carry. But lawmakers finally adopted a plan Tuesday - the court's deadline. Now the Illinois State Police have six months to set up a system and three months to approve or deny applications after that.
The motion notes the ban remains in effect until then.
