My Senator (Anderson) just posted on Facebook that he filed SB1324 to repeal the FOID act. 

 

I wonder if this is the companion bill to HB0492 I saw listed here earlier. It (SB1324) isn't  listed on ilga.gov yet.

Because it never takes more than 7 business days from "Active" to card in hand, right?

I've added the House bills. Still waiting on the Senate so I can read the language before categorizing it.



A note in regard to SB890 Revoked FOID Card Seizure:

This bill is much the same as SB2211 of the 99th GA, a bill we opposed.

At the time, we said this in a Call to Action


In our first Call to Action of 2016, we ask our friends and members to voice their opposition to SB2211 Revoked FOID Card Seizure. This bill is scheduled in committee Tuesday, February 16, 2016, at 3:00 PM.

While we do not oppose seizure of revoked FOID cards when done appropriately, the process must allow local discretion as to the method of FOID retrieval in order to best tailor the results to the community. SB2211 fails to recognize that many sheriffs and chiefs have an intimate understanding of their communities. They interact with those they serve at social events, at community events, and at church. In contrast to a Cook County approach to policing, those charged with protecting the remainder of the state are in touch, and in the best position to establish the correct method to retrieve a revoked FOID when necessary.




SB890 differs from SB221 in some interesting ways. I've categorized it as "under review" for now, pending further analysis.
