That’s what a local named plaintiff just told me.

When I obtain the court order, I shall publish it. (The summary is below.)

The order does not affect the public in general, just those 860 in the suit.

The Attorney was Thomas DeVore.

Gov. Pritzker Issues Statement on Decision in Protect Illinois Communities Act Lawsuit

Chicago—Governor JB Pritzker issued the following statement on the decision by Effingham County Judge Morrison on the Protect Illinois Communities Act:

“This decision is not surprising. Although disappointing, it is the initial result we’ve seen in many cases brought by plaintiffs whose goal is to advance ideology over public safety. We are well aware that this is only the first step in defending this important legislation. I remain confident that the courts will uphold the constitutionality of Illinois’ law, which aligns with the eight other states with similar laws and was written in collaboration with lawmakers, advocates, and legal experts.

Illinoisans have a right to feel safe in their front yards, at school, while eating at bars and restaurants or celebrating with their family and friends. The Protect Illinois Communities Act takes weapons of war and mass destruction off the street while allowing law-abiding gun owners to retain their collections. I look forward to the next steps in this case and receiving the decision this case merits.”

  1. Why just the plaintiffs?

    What about everybody else’s Constitutional rights?

  2. Federal court is where the constitutionality of the law will be decided.

    How much did all of these people pay Davore?

  3. The plaintiffs are a specific group with a specific complaint.

    The court can’t assume facts not in evidence before it.

    Aside from the constitutionality being questioned and argued, it’s not up to the court to determine whether or not a majority of Illinoisians are in support or not.

    For all the court knows, Illinoisians just love this new law. Ha!

    This is the first stone to be laid.

    Once it wends its way on the path through various courts at some point there will be clarity on its constitutionality.

    This case is akin to pushing your friend’s car so they can pop the clutch to get it started so you can start getting somewhere.

  4. The Illinois Supreme Court has warned the General Assembly about shell bill bait and switch tactics on several occasions, but has never really put its foot down and said “no more.”

    I hope this is the case that finally puts a stop to the practice.

  5. There might be cases from around the country that get to SCOTUS before Illinois plaintiffs do.

    There is one in Maryland people are watching and I think there are a few others.

    Hanz is right you want this thing settled at the federal level and by SCOTUS.

    Someone said DeVore’s argument was about procedure, like not reading the bill enough times.

    You don’t want a law like this only struck down in one state and for a reason like that.

    You want the US Supreme Court to bitch smack these gun grabbers like Pritzker, Hochul, etc so they know what’s up.

    Besides, the IL Supreme Court is 5-2 Democrat-Republican while SCOTUS is 6-3 Republican appointee majority so you should have a better chance there.

    SCOTUS has already been helpful on at least 3 gun cases since 2008.

  6. Secession is the only real answer.

    -Tired of letting a few libtard WEF elites dictate everything.

  7. This case is more by important than you realize.

    While there are 5 points to this suit, the one point about the IL General Assembly voting / passing this law under these faulty procedural circumstances makes the whole IL General Assembly look crooked or stupid.

    The judge said Devore is poised to win.

  8. ** The judge said Devore is poised to win.**

    Yet, Devore’s procedural arguments have been consistently been thrown out by IL courts at all levels.

    Devore isn’t going to end up winning this in state court.

    The three readings argument, the single subject argument, etc. – they won’t hold up.

    As others have said – what matters on this is the federal courts.

    But Devore wanted his headline, so here we are.

  9. MsTrumpion you don’t win if you don’t play.

    It amazes me the people that complain but don’t want to do what they should do to fight tyranny. It always lands on the few.

    DirtyNed, where the Atty files, has nothing to do with it, as evidenced by Devore’s previous wins in lawsuits against Pritzker and the unconstitutionality of his mandates.

    Mellow, really?

    The majority of Illinoisans Loving or hating it has no bearing.

    We’re not run by mob rule, as much as the Democrats would love it if we were.

    We’re a Constitutional Republic.

    BillyBob, you’re not only spot on, but you’ve also highlighted that the Dems are sloppy as Hell and the Republicans are lazy as Hell.

    Correcting, that’s precisely the reason for appeals.

    Each time it’s appealed takes it to a higher court.

    Any elected official on this plaintiff’s list (or that has a suit of their own) should be supported for re-election.

  10. Hey Shake if you read the TRO you probably would not have posted a response.

    If you read the entire suit and TRO, you might be impressed by his work.

    “Consistently thrown out” seems wrong because he got them all correct in this situation..

    Read the TRO

  11. CASE 2 Launch – Open for about 24 Hours. From 2:00 today!
    Here is your chance (your 2nd chance to get in on this class action!)
    ATTORNEY SOLICITATION MATERIALS – Due to a significant number of requests we are opening enrollment for a second case against HB 5471 which will severely restrict the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens in Illinois. Results of previous cases similar in nature cannot be relied up by client to expect similar results in this matter.

  12. I continue to amazed at the stupidity of people like Mellow Monk.

    Why the drive to try and disarm the citizenry.

    The black and mexican gangs will not be disarmed.

    I invite Ness and Pritzker to try and confiscate my firearms. Good luck.

  13. **”Consistently thrown out” seems wrong because he got them all correct in this situation..

    Read the TRO**

    One rookie judge doesn’t make precedent.

  14. The lead balloon of sarcasm has no place in text simply because it is NEVER understood in the written word. Only fools keep insisting on using it and then claiming their stupidity is because they were just joking. Take your stand-up routines somewhere else.

  15. I’ll try to remember to issue sarcasm trigger warnings in the future.

  16. Wait… Cindy is NOT being sarcastic and doing stand-up routines?!?!

  17. HAHAHA Shake your last comment was so funny.

    I literally laughed out loud.

    I think listening to Cindy’s standup is hilarious.

    I read her stupid comments every day just to get some laughs.
