Thank you to all who participated in reporting the events in the legislature, as they occured live yesterday.  Though I share the disappointment with the SB1966 Fix the FOID vote, I also share a deep gratitude that I'm sure is felt by all the members who benefited from your efforts.  For those who know the details of my absence, I'll add that it went much better than events in the House.  And, just as I am not done with my personal fight quite yet, neither are we done as a group will our collective fight to protect and advance our rights.  So let's hang together and we'll get through it all, both personal and public.
 
 
Yesterday, the House passed SB1966 Fix the FOID Act, where is may be added to the calendar under orders of concurrence with the three adopted House amendments.
 
The House also concurred yesterday with Senate Amendment 1 to HB38 Crim Cd - Place of Worship.  Having passed both bodies, this bill will now be sent to the Governor for his consideration.
 
 
The House is scheduled for 9:30 AM today, and the Senate for 12:00 Noon.
 
I hope to be sporadically available today and Friday, though I don't know with certaintly that I can be.  Your coverage of floor debate has been awesome.  Two more days and, hopefully, we can take a day or two off. 
 
 
Next Days Scheduled
 
House: 5/31/2019
Senate: 5/31/2019

We are hearing SB1966 Fix the FOID could be heard in committee this afternoon.  We'll probably only get 1-hour posting notice. Please help us watch for it.

It’s going to be called, pass, and be signed into law. We should be finding plantiffs who are up for renewal soon (like in a year or two) who are less financially fortunate and are also “minorities”. Play it like the dems do and show the entire state/country their hypocrisy

Well my prints are already on file with ISP and FBI due to a very bad decision I made some time ago (DUI) so I've got no standing to challenge that provision. I counted the number of constitutional infringements in this bill, not an insignificant amount, so there's multiple angles of attack. There's ways to keep it state court though. However it's attacked, I'm sure the first plaintiff (and counsel) will have a field day with this trash. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk

Even though you're prints are on file they don't count towards the FOID unless they were taken specifically for your FCCL. If you have an FCCL and did not do fingerprints you should have standing.

you know if the state was really interested in looking out for us they could just go ahead and tattoo our FOID card numbers on our forearms and get it over with.

Submitted prints for CCL but even if I didn't, court would say it doesn't matter because of inevitability. "They" (ISP) have had them since 2003. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk

Silly questions. Did the state make you pay a vendor for the prints when you were arrested? Does the state allow fingerprints done for a job to be used for the CCL or FOID?

IMO the ideal candidate will be a elderly, handicapped, minority, living on a fixed income social security, collecting welfare, living in far rural Illinois, unable to drive, with a medical marijuana card, with no close family or friends for support, and one that has used a firearm in self defense in the past or worse been assaulted because they could not afford or comply with all the new burdens to exercise thier 2nd rights...   The number of angles of attack with a single plantiff like that is huge!

SB1966 can't be called to the Senate floor until it's heard in the Judiciary committee, which currently has no hearings scheduled yet.
