Judge Dismisses Lawsuit
Against IL Ban on Right to Carry - Appealed Filed Within Hours

Judge Sue Myerscough, a federal judge in the U.S. District Court, Central District of Illinois, Springfield Division, has granted IL Attorney General Lisa Madigan's motion to dismiss the Second Amendment Foundation's challenge of the statewide ban on carrying a firearm for personal protection. On Friday, Feb. 4th, 2012, Judge Myerscough stated in her opinion:

"This Court finds that the Illinois “Unlawful Use of Weapons” and “Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon” statutes do not violate Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment rights. The United States Supreme Court and the Seventh Circuit have recognized only a Second Amendment core individual right to bear arms inside the home."

SAF Attorney David Jensen immediately filed an appeal on behalf of the plaintiffs Michael Moore, Charles Hooks, Peggy Fechter, Jon Maier, Second Amendment Foundation, Inc., and Illinois Carry. The appeal will move the case to the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

In response to the judge's ruling Alan Gottlieb, SAF Executive Director, made this statement, "We look forward to winning this important case on appeal even if it means going back to the United States Supreme Court for a third time. The Second Amendment does NOT say, the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed except outside your home or that it only applies inside your house. We don't check our constitutional rights at the front door."

"Inside the home"? Shocked Yeah, right! Mad

By that premise, Freedom of religion stops at your front door.
Also, Freedom of Speech, of Assembly, of the Press?
"Only" inside the home?


What else do you expect from the convoluted logic these power-hungry elitists practise?

Unfortunately, the general public is oblivious to their liberties that are eroding each year. This is more than just about firearms; it is the mentality that a body of elected officials know more than anyone else and seek to control every aspect of people's lives in an effort to create a utopia. At the pace we are proceeding, unless something changes I expect to see in my lifetime the school system telling each student what their career may or may not be based on their skin color, sex, sexual-orientation, and scholastic aptitude. Forget the creative thought that has risen humanity to the level of luxury we have at our disposal today; future human progress will be thwarted by the good intentions of the self-proclaimed "progressive movement".

What they meant was "Right to bear arms inside the home, after you jump through infinite amounts of hoops, obtain permits which we will do our best to prevent you from obtaining and,well.... let's just say you may want to get a side job. Then, and only then will you be able to purchase one of the 3 small caliber plastic pellet guns which we have not yet deemed unsafe and therefore, illegal. Once purchased drive carefully back to your house because we never said you could have it outside your home and we're low on cash. Enjoy your State of Illinois Constitution's new and improved version of the 2nd Ammendment."
