Cover picture for the articleCHICAGO — A federal judge has determined the state law that bans concealed carry at Cook County Forest Preserves doesn’t pass constitutional muster. In an opinion issued Sept. 13, U.S. District Judge Robert Dow Jr. said the challenged Cook County firearms regulation is overbroad. But the judge paused enforcement of his ruling for six months, giving the Illinois General Assembly until March 15, 2022, “to act definitively on this matter if it chooses to do so.”

It should be unconstitutional every where in the country on public ground except court houses. No citizens who aren’t felons should need any permit.

There should be no pause. If it’s unconstitutional now ,then stop enforcing it now.
