A beginning?

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?
