Pre-emption has arrived to Illinois.
The new right-to-carry law in Illinois offered home rule units in Illinois a ten-day window in which they might pass further rules and regulations on gun ownership.
That window closed at midnight last night.
No longer may home rule units adopt more stringent regulations than state law when it comes to firearm ownership.
Ah, life is good.
Now it’s time to roll back existing local rules and regulations that do nothing but serve to obstruct law-abiding Illinois residents from exercising their Constitutional rights while doing nothing to prevent crime.
