Sometimes those appeals can backfire on you.

Illinois loses appeal over gun control law, leaving restraining order in effect
The state of Illinois lost an appeal on Tuesday after a lower court judge issued a restraining order on a newly enacted ban on some semiautomatic rifles as well as high-capacity magazines.
After an appeal from Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul, Illinois’ Fifth District appellate court ruled on Tuesday in a 2-to-1 decision that the temporary restraining order can stay in place, and also extends it statewide. Previously, the temporary restraining order only applied to the plaintiffs.

So Illinois went from having an injunction that kept them from going after a few hundred people, to one that covers the entire state. I guess Raoul’s got some splainin’ to do.

I must admit that seeing an Illinois state appeals court rule against gun control surprised me. Are times a-changin’?
