Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan wants the state’s ban on concealed carry to be upheld. She is asking all ten judges on the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to review a lawsuit challenging the ban.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says the state's current prohibition against same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.
The Democrat is throwing her weight behind a pair of lawsuits in Cook County court that are challenging the state's marriage laws. She says she personally supports gay marriage.
I don't believe that the current law that prohibits gays and lesbians from being able to marry in the state of Illinois - uh, meets - uh, equal protection," she said.
