This looks like a good ruling. US 922(g) provides no way for a DV misdemenant to recover their 2A rights even after the 20 years as required by IL law.

This is a HUGE win and should help 100s of people who have had recent revocations of their FOID cards because of the new regulation beginning this last January. In many instances the misdemeanor convictions are decades old and the FOID card holder would never have settled for the conviction if they had known down the road they could lose their gun rights for life.

This is a good day!

Am I right in reading this, if he had served jail time there would be a path for him to recover his right, but since he had a clean background he didn't have to serve jail time, thus no path to have his rights restored?

As unbelievable as it is, yes, you are reading it correctly.

Not just any misdemeanor but a domestic battery charge,
“Most gun control arguments miss the point. If all control boils fundamentally to force, how can one resist aggression without equal force? How can a truly “free” state exist if the individual citizen is enslaved to the forceful will of individual or organized aggressors?
 
 It cannot.”

Looks good so far, have to see the fallout... I have friend that is dealing with this, he was convicted of misdemeanor assault (not domestic), and IL says he can 'technically' get his FOID back under IL law but since the Feds decided it was a domestic charge/conviction he is bared for life and the FOID will be denied under Federal law...
