The bills listed in the opening post have been updated - indicting bills which were passed or defeated.
We will want to continue to keep an eye on the rest of these bills in case there is any movement on them.

HB3991

Link to HB3991

Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Firearm Owner Identification Card Act. Requires (instead of permits) the Department of State Police to deny an application or to revoke and seize a Firearm Owner's Identification Card previously issued under the Act if the Department finds that the applicant or person to whom such card was issued is or was at the time of issuance the subject to an existing order of protection. Amends the Domestic Violence Article of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 and the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986. Provides that if the court is satisfied that there is any danger of the illegal use of firearms, it shall include in the order of protection the requirement that any Firearm Owner's Identification Card of the respondent be turned over to the local law enforcement agency for safekeeping.


The intent looks good but this should probably go on the watch list.


Should read that the person for whom the Order was intended to protect be issued a .38 and a box of shells and be taught how to use them. The subject of the OOP should be informed of that fact.

How about the person is issued a special LTC, so the aren't at risk when outside their home.

Remember the 1991 Luby Cafeteria Massacre of the Unarmed (Kileen, Texas before Texas Concealed Carry) Do we need 23 people to die in a similar incident before we're allowed effective self defense?

Personally, I'm not too worried about it. Not only does it seem not to be going anywhere, it doesn't seem like a very big deal, either. I know I classified it as "bad," but that has more to do with my bad attitude than it does with any real effect the bill would have if it became law.

I am puzzled as to why Rep. Careen Gordon is a co-sponsor.
