Feds Won't Hear Appeal of Strikedown of Illinois Concealed Carry Law

A federal appeals court won't reconsider an earlier ruling that Illinois' concealed carry ban is unconstitutional.

A three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Illinois' ban in December and gave lawmakers until June 8 to legalize the concealed carry of firearms.

Attorney General Lisa Madigan asked for all 10 judges to review the decision, saying it conflicted with decisions by other federal appellate courts and goes beyond what the U.S. Supreme Court has held.
