On 11-Dec-2012, the Seventh Circuit court overturned the Illinois law making it illegal to carry a loaded gun in public. They gave Illinois 180 days to take corrective action. If they take no action within that time, then the law making public carry is void and so public carry (without a license!) would become legal. Since the Mayan calendar didn't seem to work out quite right, I referred to a modern calendar and found that CC-day for Illinois would be 9-Jun-2013. As of today that is 160 days away. Let the countdown continue!
