Even in Ezell the remanded back to the lower court for further proceedings.
But, isn't that the point of seeking the PI in the first place? I'm not saying we'll have Vermont style carry, but if granted the injunction is going to force the ILGA to pass 148. What is the State going to do, appeal to the 7th?
My question though is what happens in between passing the bill, applying, and actually receiving a permit. My fundamental right didn't just disappear, so I think there needs to be some 'adjustments' made to 148. Again, I'm not retired LEO and my permit would not be recognized in all 50 States, so the NRA basic pistol should be sufficient training. To put things in perspective, WI allows 'internet training.'
Also, the requal requirement is BS. Again, I'm not going to be able to carry in all 50 States. LE made their bed. Just because they crapped in theirs doesn't mean I want crap in mine.
While we are at it, and for some real common sense, how about changing the original qualification to something realistic. 3, 5, or 7 yards is 'REALISTIC' self defense distances. I had a good laugh this past Sunday with my wife while at the range. She doesn't shoot often and was doing pretty well at 5-7 yards (keeping everything on an sheet of paper). When I put my target out to 45ft and told her this was the proposed qualifying distance for 148, she busted out laughing. We both agree that if I'm taking head shots at 15 yards, I may have some difficulty in justifying self defense.
