In a recently decided and much publicized Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals case, the court struck down Illinois’ statewide ban on carrying a loaded weapon in public. Most recently, the court declined a request for en banc review. The Governor and Attorney General of Illinois are divided on whether to seek a Supreme Court cert petition in an attempt to have the law reinstated. On this previously recorded live conference call, our panel of experts debate the merits of the statute, the Seventh Circuit’s decisions, and the road forward.
