I hadn't read about this case. It sounds like a simple "ownership doesn't necessarily mean possession" argument, but it seems like it could have ramifications for the FOID as well.

I love how the unconstitutional owner licensing schemes are turned around on the anti's and used against them.

Give the intern that researched the statutes a cookie. They really excelled by pulling rulings that covered a time span of 155 years. Also, way to go in getting the FOID Card Act exemptions included in there. Those are just my comments from reading the table of contents. I haven't read the the amicus yet.
I'm either banned, going to be banned, or just returned from being banned. The truth hurts.

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.
