  2. Scummy moves are typical for Highland Park where the residents will badmouth a new restaurant for putting too much authentic spice in their food. Where you'll experience passive aggressive a-hole behavior from residents who either are attorneys or have one on speed dial. How dare an outsider disrupt their "me first" make-believe "Gun Free Zone" utopia?
  3. The Wife and I are both Mid 70s and yes moving at any age is a REAL pain but more so when you are a seasoned citizen. It’s especially true when you have 23 years worth of accumulated “stuff” to sort through.. We used a real estate firm that specializes in seniors. They packed up for us, arranged the movers and will clean up the old house after you move. Then they market the old house. There are several RE firms that specialize in seniors. Google is your friend. Of course you pay for the services but without the help we might have kept procrastinating.
  4. I know this is an old thread, but I haven't had the issue you describe with Wolff springs. I put one in my Bulg Makarov several years ago. I've put a thousand rounds or more through it and it's as good as it ever was. I wonder if the quality has dropped off in recent years.

  6. Judicial Second Amendment Case Discussion > morse v raul
  7. I'm still hopeful for a Christmas miracle! https://www.scribd.com/document/610240370/Suppressor-Complaint-against-Illinois my biggest question is will the Bruen decision have any effect on suppressors?
  8. What a scummy move. The attorneys know darned well that they will be consolidated, but apparently are trying to increase the work and legal costs for S&W to have to multiply everything x12 until they get this accomplished. Scumbaggery with a capital "D." Same goes for having them filed in Lake County ... c'mon already. If Democrats can't illegalize gun ownership, they'll go after the manufacturers. If they can't legislate them out of existence, they'll try to sue them out of existence. Immunity acts be damned. The fact that the product worked as intended be damned. Much easier than trying to correct the societal, mental health and criminal problems that their idiotic policies have caused over the past 50-60 years. If they're looking for someone to blame, they need only look in the mirror. On a related note ... where's the attention/outrage/lawsuits over Waukesha??? 68 freaking people killed or maimed, but it doesn't fit any of their multiple political/societal agendas. There should be 68 separate lawsuits filed against the DNC in Waukesha County, WI. And those would actually be directed against the proper cause ...
  9. There was some previous discussion in Illinois Politics > Highland Park just announced a lawsuit against Smith and Wesson. It's not the City of Highland Park that is suing S&W. It's 12 private parties, each filing one lawsuit. The lawsuits were originally filed in Lake County Court, most (but not all) of them on September 27. On November 7 and November 14, S&W had them removed to the Federal District Court of Northern Illinois. I'm not going to create a separate topic for each of them. If the mods really want it, they can do that. Roberts v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6169 Bennett v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6171 Sundheim v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6178 Straus v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6181 Rebollar Sedano v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6183 Rodriguez v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6185 Tenorio v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6186 Vergara v Smith Wesson 1:22-cv-6190 Toledo v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6191 Zeifert v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6193 Turnipseed v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6359 Chupack v Smith & Wesson 1:22-cv-6361
  10. The case was filed in the Federal District Court of Northern Illinois on September 7. (Docket) Susan Goldman is a private individual who owns firearms and magazines of the types that are banned. On October 7, plaintiffs filed motions for preliminary and permanent injunctions. On October 11, the court held a hearing on the motion for a preliminary injunction (among other things). A hearing on the motion for a permanent injunction is scheduled for March 8, 2023. (The court has not issued a preliminary injunction.)
  11. The case was filed in the Federal District Court of Northern Illinois on September 7. (Docket) Robert Bevis owns Law Weapons & Supply. On November 18, plaintiffs filed motions for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction. On November 21, the court held a hearing on the motions. It expects to issue a ruling on them on November 28.
  12. TL;DR: Greco was/is the subject of a "red flag" order. When Greco sued NJ in federal district court regarding the constitutionality of the "red flag" law, the district court ruled that it could not rule, because Greco was the subject of a civil order covered by the challenged law. The appeals court affirmed the district court decision. Greco seeks merely to be able to proceed against NJ in district court. Meanwhile, even the NJ Attorney General apparently thinks the law is unconstitutional. BTW, the ex parte hearing for the "red flag" order lasted two days and resulted in a no-knock warrant entry into his home to seize one rifle, which was legally owned and registered (because NJ requires registration), and some ammo.
  13. Filed in Federal District Court of Southern Illinois (Docket)
  14. here is my review of Range V Lombardo which was argued by the same attoerney that argued the Government's case in Atkinson. Same arguments but the judges bought them contrary to what the 7th circuit was saying at orals. some language is in here
  15. There will be attempts at conversations with house and senate leadership on both sides but I don't know they will listen. If they persist, there will be lawsuits. Period.
  16. Morse V Raul, filed today, challenging suppressor ban in IL https://storage.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.ilsd.93705/gov.uscourts.ilsd.93705.1.0.pdf
  17. So you may be saying, any organization that’s wants to actually win, should go or file first?
  18. The organization that would normally be the one to bring such a lawsuit within Illinois can't really, at the moment, be trusted to do so, though.
  19. So are they going to ban sticks or partial branches? In this old military training video they describe washed up beach wood can be used as a “club”. So if your calling AR’s “weapons of war” then according to this historical video “clubs” or wooden branches are also weapons of war as well. So would technically a mini sword be a weapon of war, but we know from history that swords and daggers were also defensive weapons and people were allowed to have them, in the open, and in public even!
  20. Last week
  21. The law does not require complete concealment. Other than laying the gun on your dashboard, or maybe on a seat, your gun is already at least mostly concealed in a vehicle. " (c) A license shall be valid throughout the State for a period of 5 years from the date of issuance. A license shall permit the licensee to: (1) carry a loaded or unloaded concealed firearm, fully concealed or partially concealed, on or about his or her person; and (2) keep or carry a loaded or unloaded concealed firearm on or about his or her person within a vehicle." 430 ILCS 66/ Firearm Concealed Carry Act. (ilga.gov)
  22. Back in 2016 I got t-boned while driving my truck and most of the contents from the front and back of the truck wound up in the road when the tailgate and pass. door opened.Luckily I had my pistol holstered.I always have it holstered in my vehicles just because of that incident.I even have shoulder holsters or cross draw holsters for longer drives.The Stoker car holsters looks o.k. though I wish it had a snap closure option instead of a magnet.
  23. Mine lays either between the console and the driver seat or at times it’s just flat in the passenger seat (barrel facing the passenger door grip down). I have a slightly over sized wash cloth I found some years ago in black. I drape this over the firearm to conceal and have never had any issues. People and such have been up to my car and have never given it a second glance or asked about it. Two things here....when I exit the car it goes into my already on holster or the car gets locked caked if it’s a gun free zone. YMMV
