State Attorney General Lisa Madigan has yet to make a decision as to whether or not to appeal to the Supreme Court the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling that Illinois has to allow concealed carry. At the very same time that the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals made its ruling, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals came to the opposite conclusion. They ruled that the 2nd Amendment does NOT protect concealed carry.
Whether or not the 2nd amendment covers an individual’s right to concealed carry has never been adjudicated by the Supreme Court. This question is unsettled law and should be ruled on by the Supreme Court before Illinois enacts any concealed carry laws.
The Stop-Concealed-Carry group, www.stopconcealedcarry.org has a petition to Lisa Madigan demanding that she appeal the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruling to the Supreme Court before Illinois enacts any concealed carry laws.

The same group has a petition to the Illinois State House, Senate and Governor Quinn demanding that any concealed carry law be made as restrictive as possible.
