Supreme Court Brief Filed In Lawsuit Against Handgun Ban

Bellevue, WA – -( are very excited to see the Second Amendment Foundation joined by the Illinois State Rifle Assocciation on the behalf of four Chicago residents submitted its brief in the U.S. Supreme Court case McDonald vs Chicago.

The brief was prepared by attorney Alan Gura who was also the attorney for the widely known Heller case which successfully challenged the Washington D.C. handgun ban last year.

The brief is available for viewing and downloading at The brief presents an excellent and compelling argument as to why the Second Amendment should be incorporated into the states. Many Second Amendment supporters will find the brief easy to read and comprehend. It has been said by some IllinoisCarry members who have read it to cause “goosebumps” in its scope, clarity, and purpose.

Oral arguments are expected to be heard early next year and perhaps a ruling by mid-year. The restoration of the Second Amendment rights of Illinois citizens will be greatly affected by the ruling in this case and we shall continue to watch future developments very closely.

The IllinoisCarry forum was started in April 2004. The idea was that Illinois needed a central location to communicate ideas and information regarding 2nd Amendment issues in Illinois. There are many organizations in Illinois working to protect our 2nd Amendment Rights. Working with these groups IllinoisCarry has become the central location for information and Action Alerts. IllinoisCarry will not endorse political candidates. We simply provide information so voters can make informed decisions. Our goal is to join the other 48 states that allow their citizens to carry concealed firearms. We encourage you to register on our forum and join the fight for your 2nd Amendment Rights in Illinois.
