    SPRINGFIELD - In a huge win for gun-rights groups, a divided federal appeals court in Chicago Tuesday tossed the state's ban on carrying concealed weapons and gave Illinois' Legislature 180 days to craft a law legalizing concealed carry.

    "The debate is over. We won. And there will be a statewide carry law in 2013," said Todd Vandermyde, a lobbyist for the National Rifle Association.

    Quinn and his Chicago-based butt buddies will try to find a way around it.

    Their only option is the Supreme Court and which way do you think they'll rule?

    Well except concealed carry is about hand guns and all. Further fully automatic weapons like the m-60 are licensed by the Federal Government and illegal in 13 States. You see since 1934 fully automatic weapons are controlled by the Federal Government and are not considered currently as protected by the second amendment.
