There is good news concerning our lawsuit against Illinoi’s ban on standard capacity magazines and so-called “assault weapons.”

We’ve mentioned previously our legal challenge against this tyrannical law, and by the looks of it, we might just get our chance before the U.S. Supreme Court very soon!

In case you’re unfamiliar, here’s a little info to get you up to speed. This law took effect in January 2023, and GOA quickly filed suit and secured an injunction from Judge Stephen McGlynn.

As Judge McGlynn put it, the Illinois laws in question “seem to be written in spite of the clear directives in Bruen and Heller, not in conformity with them.” Frustratingly, the anti-gun 7th Federal Circuit quickly blocked Judge McGlynn’s ruling, leaving Illinois gun owners with no choice but to request relief from the nation’s high court.

This week, big news in the battle against Illinois assault weapons ban will come when the Supreme Court meets on June 6th to consider hearing our case.

There are three possibilities that could result:

  • The Court could decide to hear our case.
  • Not hear our case.
  • Or postpone this decision on whether or not they will hear it.

Regardless, we will keep you update

GOA and our legal team will continue fighting to repeal the assault weapons ban until Illinois stands free from all gun control measures impeding the rights of citizens in this state.

Thank you for your continued support of GOA and your firm resolve in defending the Second Amendment. And please continue to stay informed by browsing our Press Center page for further updates.

In Liberty,

Michael Csencsits
Deputy Director of State and Local Affairs
Gun Owners of America
