Poor Kwame Raoul. A couple of weeks ago he had 450 attorneys working for him at the Illinois Attorney General’s Office. Then he lost one early last week and two more quit Friday. Look like they’re down to 447. It’s a good start.
Tom DeVore is expected to file a second lawsuit in state court later today or tomorrow with a fresh new batch of plaintiffs in another challenge to Governor JB Pritzker’s new gun and magazine ban. We at GSL welcome the new filing because it will help give us additional intel on how the state plans to defend the lawsuit since Illinois AG’s sad, junior varsity legal defense of only half of the defendants worked so well last week. (SPOILER ALERT: Kwame’s peeps lost.)
Mr. DeVore has reportedly granted permission for an attorney in Macon County to use much of his work to draft and file a new complaint in Macon County using the same primary ingredients.
State Representative Dan Caulkins is spearheading this effort. If you would like to be a named plaintiff in this “as applied” lawsuit (meaning if the court grants a temporary restraining order, you would suddenly find yourself exempt from enforcement of this new law), contact him. (If the link fails: Dan@DanCaulkins.com) You can drop off a donation to help facilitate this to become a named plaintiff. The recommended donation is $200, but if you can’t afford that, they’ll accept less. If you’re fortunate and can afford more, please do help out with something over $200.

Clearly Tom DeVore’s got a winning recipe for some outstanding
fried chicken litigation blocking the unconstitutional new gun ban law. Kudos to Mr. DeVore for sharing the proprietary recipe with others.
This legal challenge has nothing to do with the Illinois Gun Rights Alliance legal actions to which Guns Save Life is a party. We expect our lawsuit in federal court to be filed later this week. We’ll (obviously) announce it once it happens.
