    Yes, he is still in Federal prison. The Democrats want him kept on ice, so he can't go public with information that could send them to prison.

So far, all the current ban states (MA, CT, NY, NJ, MD, and CA) are in heavily left-wing circuits. IL is in the much more conservative 7th Circuit. If IL passed a ban and it got struck down, they would lead to a dispute which the SC would have to settle. And while I don't trust Roberts overall, he's consistently ruled in favor of gun rights. So that could settle the assault weapons controversy for a good long while.
    That would be fantastic. Why does SCOTUS decline to hear a case that's clearly unconstitutional?

    I liked Blago. At least he was honest about being a crook.

    Illinois has been a horribly run state for years. Chicago hasn't had a republican mayor since 1931. The dems have been trying hard to kill it and now with Jelly Bean in office I fear they will succeed. And they all look around and wonder how things got like this. I've lived here most of my life but I'm looking real close at popping smoke and getting out.

    Lived in illinois for 35 years, had a business there along with another family business thats in the process of being sold.
    2nd highest in the nation for property taxes along with 45k resident leaving annually.

    Property taxes coupled with fewer people in the buyers pool are just killing home values, GET OUT NOW!

    Dang, great news!

    A Lake County, IL Circuit Court judge blocked the village of Deerfield from enforcing its ban on assault weapons, striking a legal blow to gun control efforts at the local level.

    According to The Chicago Tribune, Judge Luis Berrones issued a permanent injunction against the Chicago suburb, writing that the plaintiff firearm owners have “a clearly ascertainable right to not be subjected to a preempted and unenforceable ordinance” that bans them from having these firearms, mandates monetary fines for possessing them and enables law enforcement to seize these firearms.

    I wasn't aware of Wilson v Cook County. Looks like it was filed back in 2011 and is just about ready to go to trial. Keep us updated..
