In Illinois it's Constitutional law is worthless. Hitler would have loved it. Chicago and Morton Grove have banned handguns. In Cook County there is a complete ban on assault weapons, and the list of these weapons is endless.

The opposite of 'preemption' is the rule. When I read other state laws (Pennsylvania for example) and I encounter preemption it is mind boggling - difficult to understand how some states are so rational while Illinois has so many restrictions and so much crime.

In Cicero, Illinois, guns must be registered. The person who signed off on this law is now serving time in prison (8 years, Betty Loran Maltese.)
