Illinois Illegal Concealed Carry

h/t No Lawyers - Only Guns and Money
An Obama appointed judge has dismissed a case seeking to challenge ILL's unconstitutional restrictions on second amendment rights.

I've pointed out before that plenty of ILL residents carry concealed firearms. Just. Not. Legally.

... Some Unlawful Use of a Weapon (UUW) charges are a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in county jail and a fine of $2,500. However, the vast majority of weapons charges or Unlawful Use of Weapon (UUW) charges are felonies.
Some go beyond carrying, turning their neighborhoods into active free fire zones. map

That gets ya into Aggravated Discharge of a Firearm territory. Once ya cross into this zone, the price can get heavy.

... Class X felony for which the sentence shall be a term of imprisonment of no less than 10 years and not more than 45 years ...
Yet ... there's no shortage of mooks that willingly, casually and regularly go there.

Second City Cop usually has a round-up of shootings in and around Chicago.
He ain't struggling to find content.
Which leads me to believe that the laws only affect the law abiding.
