In 2023, the year after the seminal Supreme Court's Second Amendment decision of Bruen, the state of Illinois chose rebellion and passed into law the most severe gun control law in its 200 year history, effectively banning both "assault weapons" and many other commonly owned firearms.

An suit by gun owners brought by gun owners against the new law failed in Federal trial court, and appeal of that decision to the Federal 7th Circuit also failed.

Last December the US Supreme Court refused to stay that law pending its becoming effective, in a decision that earned a scathing dissent from Justice Clarence Thomas, the primary author of Bruen.

Now that the law has taken effect Illinois gun owners are again petitioning the US Supreme Court to invalidate this Illinois gun law on its merits, as violative of the Second Amendment.

In today's show we read through this request to the Supreme Court, formally known as a petition for writ for certiorari, filed just last week. This petition shows in clear and direct language how severely the Illinois state government and the 7th Circuit has rebelled against the clear demands of Bruen.THERE IS ONLY ONE SELF-DEFENSE "INSURANCE" PROVIDER I TRUST!There are lots of self-defense "insurance" companies out there.
