The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) is asking the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to intervene against Illinois ban on concealed carry law for non-residents.

SAF posits that Illinois ban on concealed carry by non-residents deprives non-Illinois residents of their Second Amendment rights, in effect denying virtually all Americansof their full Second Amendment rights while in the state of Illinois.

SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb said:

This is a case that literally begs for Supreme Court attention. When the Court ruled in the 2008 Heller case that the Second Amendment protected a fundamental right, it was clear that this right belongs to everyone, not just the residents of an individual state. The Seventh Circuit held in Moore v. Madigan that the carrying of firearms in public for self-defense is a fundamental right, but under existing Illinois restrictions, that right has been limited to Illinois residents and citizens from only four other states.
