Okay, so we lost my wife’s step-father in early 2017, and we lost her mom in early 2018. Both deaths were duly recorded with the State of Illinois. So imagine our surprise when we received two letters (one addressed to each of them) informing them that their FOID cards were about to expire and that they needed to renew them. Imagine our total shock when I went and ran them only to find out that they were both STILL ACTIVE and got approved for transfer. So you get rejected for putting Rd. Instead of Road on an app but are still good to go even if you die..... Good Job Illinois!!

It’s only fair that if the dead are allowed to vote in Illinois they can posses firearms.

My daughter got a notice that her CCL was due to renew and she has been out of the state for at least 3 years if not more. AND she did send her stuff back.

Well, you can just let them expire, then the antis will label them as "revoked" and get the ISP to execute a search warrant on their residence (which I guess is your residence, since you got the letters), possibly in a no-knock, pre-dawn raid, for the children.

I still get mail addressed to my grandmother from the soil conservation service about her farm and she past away in 1967


One persons paranoia is another persons situational awareness.

Maybe it is time to remove immunity from all public officials and be able to hold them fully accountable for their actions.

Don’t they accidentally knee-cap the children on those raids?

Only to get a headline when they don't find anything.

There is an easy cure for all these dead people still on the rolls of different agencies. The social security office puts out a Death Master list  that all the credit reporting agencies use to mark accounts.

Just run the names in any of the databases against the Death Master.

https://en.wikipedia...ath_Master_File


A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve

- is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'

That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

95% accurate at best, they say......

So the two listed in this post were the ones that slipped through.
And when talking about millions, that’s a lot of dead people still listed as alive.

Mom died 19 months ago.  Since then she has received notice to renew her FCCL, her license plates, and several offers for new credit cards.  However, she is no longer listed as a registered voter.

Shhhhh
They roam these forums
They’re everywhere
Be very careful

You just happened to REMEMBER your FOID number and ran it right?
We all know it’s law to turn in your actual FOID if you move out of state!

True but its a start and easy to do.

Don’t forget about the living listed as dead in that database.
