In a victory for liberty, the U.S. Seventh Court of Appeals said Illinois's ban on carrying a weapon in public is unconstitutional.
"'We are disinclined to engage in another round of historical analysis to determine whether eighteenth-century America understood the Second Amendment to include a right to bear guns outside the home. The Supreme Court has decided that the amendment confers a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as important outside the home as inside,' the judges ruled."
