Illinois (ECWd) –
A lawsuit against the recent gun ban law was filed in the US District Court for the Southern District of Illinois. Unlike the recent case filed in Effingham which names the Governor, Attorney General, House Speaker and Senate Leader, this one is targeted at the enforcers of the law.
Specifically, it names the following as defendants:
- KWAME RAOUL, in his official capacity as Attorney General of Illinois;
- BRENDAN F. KELLY, in his official capacity as Director of the Illinois State Police;
- JAMES GOMRIC, in his official capacity as State’s Attorney of St. Clair County, Illinois;
- JEREMY WALKER, in his official capacity as State’s Attorney of Randolph County, Illinois;
- PATRICK D. KENNEALLY, in his official capacity as State’s Attorney of McHenry County, Illinois;
- RICHARD WATSON, in his official capacity as Sheriff of St. Clair County, Illinois;
- JARROD PETERS, in his official capacity as Sheriff of Randolph County, Illinois;
- ROBB TADELMAN, in his official capacity as Sheriff of McHenry County, Illinois;

Frank? Can we vote on which punishment we would prefer? If so, put me down for the death penalty.
