Judge Dunn, circuit judge in Wabash County has ruled in favor of our plaintiff in Johnson vs ISP.  This case challenges the lifetime ban on firearm possession for individuals prohibited for misdemeanor domestic battery convictions under the federal Lautenberg Act.  It is similar to the Corum case which won in IL Supreme Court a few years ago but a new challenge was needed after IL changed IL law right after the Corum ruling.


The Judge Dunn's ruling is attached. If appealed this case will advance to the IL Supreme Court because of the constitutional challenge. (This copy is not signed but will be once we get a copy of the ruling filed with the clerk.)

Her “as applied” challenge is not only “ripe,” but, this court holds, it should bear
fruit as her request to have her FOID Card reinstated must be granted.

Good for Shawna! It looks like she had half the L.E. in Wabash County speak in her favor.
