Firearms Ban Update

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett has denied a request for a preliminary injunction against Illinois Democrats’ firearms ban. The news broke yesterday, without commenting or referring the emergency application to the full court.

According to a news report, Law-Abiding Gun Owners of Macon County and two of its leaders asked Barrett for the injunction to stop the law from being enforced while the justices decide what to do with its pending challenge to the state Supreme Court’s decision that upheld the ban.

The Supreme Court rejected a similar challenge in May.
