Seventh Circuit Invalidates Ban on Carrying Loaded Guns in Public

I’m on the run to a faculty meeting, so I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but from the How Appealing blurb the case sounds quite interesting:

Majority on divided three-judge Seventh Circuit panel invalidates under the Second Amendment an Illinois law forbidding most people from carrying a loaded gun in public: You can access today’s ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit at this link.

Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner wrote the majority opinion, in which Circuit Judge Joel M. Flaum joined. Circuit Judge Ann Claire Williams issued a dissenting opinion.

Update: The majority opinion concludes: “we order our mandate stayed for 180 days to allow the Illinois legislature to craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment as interpreted in this opinion, on the carrying of guns in public.”

Note that the link to the ruling gave me an error message, perhaps because many people are trying to access it.
