Quote:Illinois Supreme Court Rules Section of State Gun Law Violates Constitution

It only seems appropriate on the day feared by Triskaidekaphobians and the Voyager spacecraft finally leaves our solar system to report that the Illinois Supreme Court has issued a pair of rulings expanding gun rights for state residents. In People v. Aguilar, the court tossed the arrest of a man in his friend's yard in Chicago because he was holding a pistol. "if Heller means what it says, the ruling reads, "and "individual self-defense" is indeed the "central component" of the second amendment right to keep and bear arms, then it would would make little sense to restrict that right to the home." That might provide an incentive for the Illinois State Police to maybe move a bit faster on concealed carry licensing. The second ruling in Coram v. Illinois found that a state statute regarding aggravated unlawful use of weapons also violated the Second Amendment.

This ruling is probably the most significant we've seen. It can be what turns the tide. Now lets hope the state takes it to SCOTUS

I still think hell will freeze over before NJ becomes a "shall issue" state.
