Right to keep and bear arms in Illinois: For country folks only?

In other words, although the Supreme Court's McDonald v. City of Chicago ruling established that the Second Amendment binds state and local governments, as well as the federal government, apparently Madigan argues that as long as you can bear arms in some places (which happen to be the places where people tend not to be in great numbers), your right to keep and bear arms remains uninfringed.

One wonders what Madigan would say about a law prohibiting newspaper articles and editorials, television and radio broadcasts, internet postings, etc., that were critical of the government--but only if this material were created and/or disseminated in town. Out in the country, you can say what you want, so your First Amendment rights are protected, right? [More]
