While I know this may be a tad off topic, I feel it needs to be stated. We play defense too much, I recently viewed a GOA video about national reciprocity and how they feel this can keep the grabers occupied, coincidently I was also listening to Dan Carlins hardcore history podcast on the blueprint for Armageddon and how successful modern armys strike hard and fast (paraphrasing). Well thinking about the both lead me to thinking about a deep strike that may keep the grabbers at bay. Section 22 of the Illinois Constitution is in violation of more then one amendment to the US Constitution, why cant we strike at the heart of the problem and sue them in federal court, tie up the states legal resources in court and give these legislators something to think about besides unconstitutional laws. Maybe Im naive but Id be willing to throw some money at the cause.
Im open to your commentary, yes I know I dont post a lot/or at all. Im a lurker who usually spends more time working then surfing the web but I am politically active and have flesh in the game.
IllinoisCarry has always subscribed to a three prong approach to gun rights - legislative, judicial, and electoral. I usually think of a forth, public relations, as being part of it too.
More to your point, there is judicial activity both at the state and federal level. When we win, and cases are chosen carefully to increase the likelihood of a win, each builds upon the ones that came before it. Thinking in those terms it might make more sense to let the New York case play out in SCOTUS before going after that section of the Illinois Constitution.
