Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is pushing in the courts for tough gun control laws.
She’s appealing a recent ruling that struck down the state’s ban on carrying concealed weapons in public.
A three-judge panel ruled the ban violates the second amendment to the U.S. constitution.
Madigan says the decision conflicts with rulings from federal courts in other states and she’s asking the full 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to review it.
