Seventh Circuit takes another bite out of Chicago Gun Banners hide.

The Seventh Circuit has recognized per Heller that the deprivation of the right of armed self-defense is an inherently irreparable injury. Can civil rights damage cases be far behind? The last link is about the Second Amendment Foundation requesting Illinois' gun ban be declared unconstitutional based on the Ezell decision.
Link to PDF of decision from the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit (Ezell v Chicago  -Chicago Gun Range Ban)

Link to SAF news release for preliminary injuction against IL Carry Ban
Hmmm. A total ban is unconstitutional...
I wonder how that will affect a certain case in Kentucky and the future of total bans at post-secondary educational institutions in the Commonwealth?
