We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—...
Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.   (2 Corinthians 4 NIV)
 

On 5/25/2017, Superintendent Eddie Johnson predicted a 50% reduction is Chicago violence within 3 years of SB1722 becoming law.  The bill was signed into law on 6/23/2017. The clock is now ticking.

In response to a question, the sponsor states that the federal definition of a law enforcement officer will be followed, which may or may not include correctional officers (there is uncertainty).

 

She also adds that allowing LEO to carry while hunting is safer than leaving it on the car.

She explains that the bill is a (knee jerk) reaction to recent events in Aurora.

 

She starts by eplaining that revoked FOID cardsare difficult to handle, without acknowledging that doing away with the FOID system would solve that problem

 

The bill requires fingerprinting, at the expense of the applicant

 

It raises the FOID fee 1,000%

 

It requires universal background checks, which actually means private transfers would be illegal.  The cost of FFL transfers would be borne by the seller/purchaser.

She further states that the increased fees would cover the cost of enforcing revocations, again, a simpler solution being to rid ourselves of the FOID Act which is already in peril, and rely on NICS.

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—...
Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.   (2 Corinthians 4 NIV)
 

On 5/25/2017, Superintendent Eddie Johnson predicted a 50% reduction is Chicago violence within 3 years of SB1722 becoming law.  The bill was signed into law on 6/23/2017. The clock is now ticking.

So are we ready to stop playing nice yet? We meant nothing even as the overwhelming majority

Furthermore, time to start getting funds together for a legal challenge

John Thompson of the ISP is up.

 

He explains the couple of fee changes in the FOID Act since it was enacted in 1968.

The amendment is adopted on SB1966.

What is the breakdown on who voted to adopt it?

I don't think we play nice, so much as staying true to the high road.

I would not like to sink to Ms. Willis' level.

I believe it was by voice vote rather than by roll call.

Nah, we can be nasty and not push it too far. Maybe doxing the identified moms on the proponents?

So adopted, but not advanced out of committee yet then? Just need to know whether I need to thank or express frustration with my rep.

Thompson continues by stating that fingerprints caught a couple CCL applicants, implying the impossible - that a state of perfection will be achieved in a human designed system if only we infringe further on our rights.

A Chicago Police sergeant now speaks to Chicago's particular problems without mentioning that somehow, in some way the rest of the state and most of the country manages to avoid their problems, perhaps by doing more than constantly complaining about laws that are often not even enforced.

He explains the number of "illegal guns" seized in Chicago with no mention of arrests/prosecutions, or lack thereof.  In speaking of "illegal guns" he speaks to a system similar to pointing to a duck, calling the duck illegal, then celebrating the number of illegal ducks they've seized.  It is not a system of reducing violence.

Representative Turner says he is generally supporting of everything in the bill, but he does have an issue with the way fees are allocated.

Mr. Turner now questions the cost of fingerprints.  Ms. Willis says that are as low as $28, a stretch of the imagination by any measure.
