In the House yesterday, newly minted gun control Legislators Rose and Caulkins passed SB2124 Sch Cd - Student Expulsion - (Non)-Guns out of the House and, previously, the Senate. Their Childrens' Mandatory Minimum Sentencing bill will now be sent the Governor.

Also in the Senate, HR398 Restrict Lead Shotshells was released from committee and now appears on the floor calendar.

Finally, the House Rules Committee recommended adoption of House Amendment 2 on SB1139.


The House is scheduled for 10:00 AM and the Senate Senate for 9:00 AM.



I will be away for some appointments today. Please help us keep up to date on floor activity if you can, by posting events here.

And the fee to pay for the background check?  Does the vendor or ISP forego that fee?

So FOID is a 4x price bump instead of 10x for 10 years. How generous of them...

However, this makes it mighty tempting for the caucus members that weren't ready to commit. The only thing we can hope for now is for FOID to be found unconstitutional and put an end to that.

if we have a FOID (and a CCL) we're being background checked practically every night as it is.  Why should there be a background check on a renewal?  It's just another tax heaped upon us.

Wait , these vendors have been charging anywhere from $55 to $70 for prints and now the State says they can only charge $30.00 for a FOID card?  Is that even constitutional??

So the vendors will just not be willing to take your fingerprints.  The government can't force them to do business...  Basically it will make it impossible to get a FOID since no (or few) vendors in the state will be willing to take your fingerprints...

They are making it even worse LOFL!!!!!!! Um, isnt forcing a privately owned business to limit what they charge for a service (GASP) communism?

Prices and paying for goods and services: prices are regulated entirely by the State with little regard for the actual costs of production. Often a currency does not exist in a command planning economy and when it does, its main purpose is for accounting. Instead of paying for goods and services when you need to buy them, you are allocated goods and services. This is often also called rationing.



Luckily vendors can just say no, as mentioned, thus making it impossible to enforce

Since the original bill and first amendment left committee ready for 3rd reading and the new changes are a Floor Amendment, am I correct that there will be no witness slips to be done and they can adopt this and quickly vote?

ETA synopsis of HFA 2
SB 1966 (HFA 0002)
In the amendatory changes to the State Finance Act, eliminates the School-Based Mental Health Services Fund and provides that moneys in the Mental Health Reporting Fund may be used for reporting prohibitors to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Provides that any surplus moneys in the Fund shall be used as follows: (1) 50% shall be used to fund community-based mental health programs aimed at reducing gun violence, community integration and education, or mental health awareness and prevention, including administrative costs; and (2) 50% shall be used to award grants that use and promote the National School Mental Health Curriculum model for school-based mental health support, integration, and services. In the amendatory changes to the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act, provides that a live scan fingerprint vendor may not charge more than $30 per set of fingerprints. Reduces the application and renewal fees for Firearm Owner's Identification Cards from $50 to $20. Changes the amounts of the distribution of fees for applications for Firearm Owner's Identification Cards to various funds

Possible. But when in committee there were legislators who said they wanted to see the bill back in committee before it was voted on.

Just like Cuba. 

 

"They felt slighted, and rightly so, when they looked at less-educated hotel porters and taxi drivers who lived in bigger houses, owned cars, and could afford to travel because they worked in the more lucrative tourism industry. Even a beggar could make more than a doctor from being passed a couple of tourist dollars a day. The absurdity seemed possible only in an upside-down world."

 

"She told me about her challenges as a Cuban physician. She made $30 a month and earned nothing for being on call. She had no car and walked, bused, or hitchhiked to work. She balanced clinical duties with housework and caring for her son. Throughout the evening, Dr Edith answered multiple telephone calls from patients, never ignoring a single one."

My guess is the legislators although lobbyists voicing the excessive fees issue could have influenced some caucus members. I dont believe lobbyists had any impact on Willis. They werent that involved and shes just trying to get her bill passed. Need to kill the fingerprint requirement!

Reason I bring it up is because if lobbyists helped reduced the cost, it isn’t really helping our cause as it makes it a little bit harder to defeat in court (just a little)

Maybe it's a business opportunity across the state. Buy a new car, the dealer will offer you a fingerprint scan for only an additional $30. It's an economic stimulus in disguise.

They didn't have the votes so they are lowering the fee in the hopes to entice the Black Caucus to turn their backs on their constituents.

Former fee for a permit to exercise a constitutional was $1 per year for 10 years. $20+$30=$50 for five years. $10/year is only a 1000% increase. Nice

Gotcha. Thanks! And i hope voters in their districts still hold them accountable. It should be free and no fingerprinting, which gives me an idea for a video....

So their constituents can still be required to be fingerprinted to exercise their 2A rights. That's not much of a "deal".
