Today the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals turned away our application for an en banc rehearing of their earlier decision affirming Frank Easterbrook’s Emergency Stay blocking the injunction issued by District Court Judge McGlynn.
McGlynn’s decision struck down the so-called “Protect Illinois Communities Act” law.
The rulings by the three-judge panel at the Seventh Circuit have essentially allowed the law to continue.
This decision was for preliminary injunctive relief. The cases are now released back to their respective courts to be heard on their merits.
In a nutshell, the Seventh Circuit is stalling to give time for the US Supreme Court’s makeup to change should one of the gun rights supporting justices get sick and/or die. They know that gun control measures are dead. Just like courts and politicians were reluctant to give up school segregation for a solid two years after the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision in the 1950s, so too are some inferior courts like the Seventh along with a whole coterie of gun control jihadist politicians.
