  1. Today
  2. This right here. Why would you need to draw attention to saying they were moved by removing them? IMHO that's just a free invitation!
  3. The cheap stuff certainly weighs heavily, especially in cheap safes like this, but the tech is still a problem... The 'better' fingerprint scanners are now about 99.9% accurate against false positives aka unauthorized access when properly setup and configured (they can still be hacked) but the bigger issue that they don't talk about is the high rate of false negatives, aka the rejection rate of legit users... The more secure and accurate you make a fingerprint lock the more times legit users are going to be rejected it's a catch-22 flaw in the tech itself since fingerprints are 'living' and not static...
  4. Banned firearms owned prior to the passage of PICA are eligible to be grandfathered if the owner registers them. Estimates vary, but somewhere from 2% to 6% of banned firearms have been registered. The deadline was January 1.
  5. What is a covered registered firearm? I lived in Illinois several years and owned guns. I do not remember registering any firearm.
  6. I particularly like this image and description. By EasterCrook's definition, Remington 1100's should be declared military use. They have a picture of it here on a battle ship, as is description states. That sure don't look like a cruise ship. Taken from this wiki page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remington_Model_1100#Users Wingmaster 12-gauge shotgun, two Remington 1100 12-gauge shotguns, boxes of shells and clay targets are laid out on the fantail of the battleship USS MISSOURI (BB-63) in preparation for skeet shooting practice. Then there is this article, gotta NIX pump shotguns now! https://www.twz.com/8188/check-out-the-marine-corps-fearsome-looking-upgraded-shotguns Would close-range be like .... "In the home"... ?
  7. Keep us posted if ISP comes to the registered location, to do a well being check on the firearms.
  8. If he was an employee, it doesn't matter that he was a CCL-holder (mostly). It also doesn't sound like lethal force was justified, but the cops cut him a break (maybe because of the CCL, but maybe because the cops don't like jewel thieves).
  9. Why yes, in fact I am aware of someone who did that this weekend with two previously registered firearms that have since been taken out of State. Their ISP account no longer shows them, but I can't speak to whether or not some sort of unlisted data trail remains.
  10. Yesterday
  11. The tech isn't the problem, it's when they use the cheapest crap they can find. I do not use bio locks.
  12. Fingerprints can fade with age. I did fingerprints when I got my license 10 - 11 years ago. The technician had to make several tries. She said that it was fairly common for older people. I have had several prints, both scanned and inked, volunteering, Florida CC, my new state CC. I had problems with each one. Results with my I-pad vary. If I had to get to my gun quickly, I would not want to depend on the reliability of a fingerprint scanner.
  13. And for serving delicious animal products. Ever been to a churrascaria? "Yes, officer, I'm on my way to a barbeque."
  14. And the correct argument for our lawyers is to declare it Easterbrook's interest balancing. Then use your example that any item can be used for unlawful purposes. Then when they get to the military test. Just about every action (lever, bolt, revolver, trap door, musket, semi-auto, auto) have been used by the military at one time. So Easterbrook's military test would allow a ban on virtually every type of gun which is in violation of Heller's common use.
  15. Eastbrook will back step and come up with some different obscure reasons to rule against out Rights. Confront a liberal with their own words and logic and they jump to something else. They can’t deal with the cognitive dissonance. It’s what liberals do.
  16. I read it differently than the thread title: Wayne and other NRA Execs (not the NRA) found guilty; ordered to repay $ to NRA. Doesn't this kinda make it almost a win for NRA members by getting money back from execs? Never liked Wayne. Still became a Life Member. Cheers, Tim
  17. IMO: A sword is a purpose built long knife. It's only intended working purpose is combat... the "assault weapon" of blades. Authorities may question the intent of someone openly carrying a sword, or any other extra long knife. Cheers, Tim
  18. on a road way should be ok. NOT in any property supported by Public funds. I can conceal carry a pistol in a state park, but cannot have a camp axe-knife with a 3 inch or longer blade. Class 2 weapon. without written permission from the site security officer. and good luck getting that, I emailed IDNR about a long camp knife for camping with firewood, and got denied, even though I request was ¨reasonable¨ per the law.
  19. McGlynn looks to have found a way to use Easterbrook's logic to our benefit.... https://assets.nationbuilder.com/firearmspolicycoalition/pages/6708/attachments/original/1708714599/2024.02.23_166_ORDER.pdf?1708714599
  20. There is no way to prove "The weaponry in question is not possessed for unlawful purposes." Computers can be used by Hackers. Cell phones can be used by anyone to coordinate a crime, or even defraud someone of money. Cars can be stolen to be used in a crime. Matches and lighters can be used by arsonists. Anyone can use anything for an "unlawful purpose".
  21. Mark Smith is really good at explaining the inside baseball part. Being a 45yr old pitcher/2B, who can still hobble my way on to the 40 and over baseball field... 🤣
