They can thank the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals... actual ruling here.

“We are disinclined to engage in another round of historical analysis to determine whether eighteenth-century America understood the Second Amendment to include a right to bear guns outside the home,” Judge Richard Posner wrote in the court’s majority opinion.

“The Supreme Court has decided that the amendment confers a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as important outside the home as inside. The theoretical and empirical evidence (which overall is inconclusive) is consistent with concluding that a right to carry firearms in public may promote self-defense,” he continued.

“Illinois had to provide us with more than merely a rational basis for believing that its uniquely sweeping ban is justified by an increase in public safety. It has failed to meet this burden,” Posner wrote.

“The Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Second Amendment therefore compels us to reverse the decisions in the two cases before us and remand them to their respective district courts for the entry of declarations of unconstitutionality and permanent injunctions,” he continued.

“Nevertheless we order our mandate stayed for 180 days to allow the Illinois legislature to craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment as interpreted in this opinion, on the carrying of guns in public,” Posner said.

Illinois has two probable responses; either appeal to the US Supreme Court, or make a new law that effectively bans the right to self-defense in contempt of the court ruling and perjure up and down that the ban="reasonable limitations". Considering Chicago's stranglehold over the IL legislature (maintained by rampant election fraud where corpses and incarcerated felons' "votes" put them, and keep them, in office), we can expect they will ensure any law will not have a trace of constitutionality and that it continues enabling criminal safety above all else, by keeping innocent victims defenseless with "gun control".

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.
