From the Chicago Tribune:
ROCKFORD – In the only state
that doesn’t let its residents walk around with concealed firearms, a
northwest Illinois county could become the testing ground for gun
enthusiasts who want a clean sweep for their Second Amendment rights.
A grass-roots movement in Winnebago County is taking aim at Illinois’
long-held position, setting up a possible showdown between gun-rights
advocates and a sympathetic state’s attorney who believes the effort
won’t pass legal muster.
The county has scheduled a pair
of hearings this month to determine whether it should allow people to
carry guns within Winnebago borders. The proposed ordinance – which was
written after officials received a petition with more than 11,000
signatures this year – would contradict state law.
"Contradict state law"?
"All laws repugnant to the Constitution are null and void" Marbury vs. Madison.
Since Winnebago County is abutting Rock County, dare I hope for reciprocal CCW?
