Rahm Emanuel Funds Challenge to Illinois Concealed Carry Ban

It broke yesterday that Rahm Emanuel and the City of Chicago wrote a $399,950 check to the 2nd Amendment Foundation for the City of Chicago violating our right to keep and bear arms.  The $399,950 check was reimbursement for legal fess incurred by the 2nd Amendment Foundation while fighting and winning the McDonald v. Chicago case before the United States Supreme Court.

It turns out that now the 2nd Amendment Foundation will lead the appeal of a U.S. District Court decision that upheld the State of Illinois’s ban on legally carrying a concealed weapon.  Thanks to Rahm Emanuel and the City of Chicago now the 2nd Amendment Foundation has even more funds to help fight this key case defending our right to keep and bear arms.

Illinois is the only state in the union that outright bans a law abiding citizen from carrying a concealed weapon.  Below is a map that lays out the varied laws of the states regarding concealed carry.  Before carrying in another state do your own research on the laws of the land.

Thank God I live in Texas where our elected officials respect and embrace the 2nd amendment!
