It was an exciting morning in court. The lawsuits challenging the ban on carrying in IL (Moore vs Madigan and Shepard vs Madigan) were heard in 7th Circuit Court of Appeals before Justices Posner, Flaum, and Williams.
The two cases were heard jointly. Attorneys for each case were allowed 10 minutes to present their argument against the Illinois ban on carrying a loaded firearm when away from your home or place of business.
Questions from a panel of three justices were interesting, challenging, and lively. The attorneys for the IL Attorney General were pressed hard to prove the ban on carrying is constitutional and their responses came up lacking on every question.
