Does the 2nd Amendment Protect Concealed Carry Rights?

The supreme Court has never ruled on whether or not the 2nd Amendment protects an individuals right to conceal carry. It is time for the court to rule on that question.

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.

Please sign the above petitions and forward to all those who want sane gun laws in Illinois.

Maybe Mike F. is referring to the highly trained LAPD officers who were looking for ex-cop Dorner in his grey Nissan pick-up, so they shot two ladies delivering newspapers out of a blue Toyota pick-up

Abortion clinics kill more innocent unborn children than guns have ever killed born children, or do children not count as people when it comes to the most dangerous - an abortionist with a coat hanger.

*How about where the 2nd Amendment STATES ABOUT BEING "...A PART OF A WELL REGULATED MILITIA"? *Are all of you "gun toters" or "gun toting wannabees" a member of a "...WELL REGULATED MILITIA" - *OR do you just think "toting a gun" somehow makes you a MACHO individual? - *Instead of just some jerk blowing smoke - *When you do NOT really know what you are talking about? *OR are you even capable of thinking logically or intelligently?
