Quinn and Madigan are both sitting at 14 at the blackjack table. Quinn says hit, Madigan says hold.
Yeah, maybe SCOTUS would overturn the 7th. But maybe they wouldn’t, and in the process, they would set a big precedent relating to both CCW and interstate reciprocity thereof, and perhaps also bork a lot of these post-Sandy Hook gun grabber bills. However, under Madigan’s hold strategy, Illinois can pass CCW legislation in theory but is so gutted and watered down that it might as well not exist, and since it would have no reciprocity, we still wouldn’t be able to cross the river while carrying.
