UPDATE: Have SAF, NRA lawsuits pushed IL lawmakers to reconsider concealed carry?

The double-whammy federal lawsuits in Illinois – one filed by Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation and the other by the National Rifle Association and Illinois State Rifle Association – may be responsible for this morning’s possible “attitude adjustment” in the Prairie State capitol for adoption of a concealed carry statute.

More allegations in Gunrunner scandal

GUNRUNNER: ATF agent tells Fox News ‘Violation of our mandate took place’

“What happened in Project Gunrunner,” Dobyns told Napolitano, “is that a violation of our mandate took place.
