CHICAGO - Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan (D) will be asking Cook County Circuit Court judges to send cases the state's conceal carry review board rejects back to the review board for a second consideration.
The Illinois State Police (ISP) recently announced new guidelines allowing citizens who were refused permits by the special review board to appeal. However, the guidelines would not apply to the more than 200 applicants who were forced to file lawsuits in an attempt to force the government board to explain the rejections.
“We’re going to be asking the courts to remand the cases back to the review board for more process as a result of the new emergency rules ISP announced last week,” said Madigan’s spokeswoman Natalie Bauer.
The secret conceal carry review process was detailed in a report by the Tribune.
