I think NJ has one as well. And a couple states have similar things. MA and NY force you to get a pistol license upfront that is often hard and expensive to come by.

It is not as common as it once was but a number of states once required some form of permit or license for purchasing a firearm. MI and Iowa come to mind. There may be some that still do.

We have it pretty good as far as acquiring firearms in this state outside of Cook County for an extremely liberal state. The FOID is a nuisance, but is cheap and while the state is a little slow to issue them, they are shall issue.

I would suggest state preemption is far more of an issue than the FOID card. Then go after the silly waiting periods.

Domestic violence arrest? The article was lacking the reason for the arrest.

Either make FOID mean something, or eliminate it. Right now it's just a revenue generator.

I predicted that Chicago/Cook county will be sold out in order to get "shall issue".
Based on the restrictions on carry in Chicago/Cook County, I was right.

Better get familiar with the firearms laws of other states!
