Illinois Assault Weapons Banned Ruled Unconstitutional

3/4/23 Washington Examiner:
"An Illinois judge declared the state's gun ban and registry law unconstitutional on Friday.

The ruling by Macon County Judge Rodney Forbes means the law, signed by Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker in January, cannot be enforced and is now awaiting an appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court. Initially, Forbes intended to take a couple of days to consider his decision but later signed his order after a couple of hours, according to the Center Square.
"Well-established Illinois authority provides that a law declared unconstitutional pursuant to a facial challenge is void, as if the law never existed, and is unenforceable in its entirety, in all applications," attorney Jerry Stocks, who was representing state Republican Rep. Dan Caulkins in this court decision, said in a statement after the order."

I doubt this is done.  Still good news.
