  6. People should remember that many names are words that have meaning. Think about the definition of the word "welch". Not all are in the English language either. Look at this picture, then think about the politician from NY that we all love (NOT).

  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  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. 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.
  12. 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.

  13. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/nov/25/how-many-americans-carry-guns-daily Six million Americans carried guns daily in 2019, twice as many as in 2015 The trend is expected to continue, after the supreme court ruling earlier this year overturning strict limits on public gun-carrying An estimated 6 million American adults carried a loaded handgun with them daily in 2019, double the number who said they carried a gun every day in 2015, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Public Health. The new estimates highlight a decades-long shift in American gun ownership, with increasing percentages of gun owners saying they own firearms for self-defense, not hunting or recreation, and choosing to carry a gun with them when they go out in public, said Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington, and the study’s lead author. ... While recent surveys show that nearly a third of American adults say they personally own a gun, the percentage who choose to regularly carry a firearm in public is smaller, with about a third of handgun owners, or an estimated 16 million adults, saying they carried a loaded handgun in public at least once a month, and an estimated 6 million saying they did so daily, the study found. But public gun-carrying has appeared to increase rapidly in recent years. A 2015 study by the same researchers, using the same methodology, had found that 3 million adults said they carried a loaded handgun daily, and 9 million did so once a month. Today, the number of adults carrying a gun daily is probably even higher than the 2019 estimate, thanks to a record-breaking increase in gun sales during the pandemic, Rowhani-Rahbar said. “We have every reason to believe this is a trend that is probably going to continue,” he added. ... Demographically, those who chose to carry a gun in public in 2019 were more likely to live in the south, the study found. Four in five gun carriers were male, and three in four were white, Rowhani-Rahbar said. Other demographic factors, like education and household income, did not make a difference in whether gun owners chose to carry their guns in public or not, he said. About a quarter of the gun carriers had a household income of at least $125,000 a year, and nearly a third had graduated from college, the researchers found. Only about 8% of handgun owners and carriers were at the lowest income level, making less than $25,000 a year. ... “The country has been moving as a whole, in the past two or three decades, very clearly and dramatically toward loosening gun-carrying laws,” Rowhani-Rahbar said. Rowhani-Rahbar’s study found that a lower percentage of gun owners chose to carry in public in states that had very strict carrying laws, but that there wasn’t a substantial difference between states where it was easy to get a permit and states that required no permit at all. But the handful of large states that had strict carrying laws, including New Jersey and California, are now in the process of changing them, thanks to the supreme court’s decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v Bruen this June, said Adam Skaggs, the policy director at the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which advocates for increased regulation of firearms. “Bruen is only going to accelerate the number of people carrying guns in public,” Skaggs said, noting that, anecdotally, the number of gun-carrying permits being issued in those states is already on the rise. ...
  14. That is always the problem, as the tendency is for those in power to use that power to fit their agenda. And yet those in power never want to be held to the same standards that they force on others.
  15. I have made several purchases from the Ammunition Fairy. She ships to Chicago. http://www.ammunitionfairy.com/
  16. Your thinking prevailed not too far back. That is how we got Thompson, Edgar and Ryan, all tax and spend rinos. All were strong anti2. All helped to win their primary by the dems. Back then as I as a young blind republican helped the enemy win.
  17. Local ordinance jurisdiction ends at the local municipality border bounderies, one could argue the local FFL should not have transfered it, but it could be argued that where they resided no law was broken by transfering it and the fact that they took it back to Highland Park was a seperate act removed from the transfer... I would guess that there is a lot of case law supporting this or else places like fireworks stands on state borders, liquor stores outside dry towns and what not could be instantly sued into non-existance for selling to out of state people, yet they are not because that sale does not violate the actual local law where the sale took place...

  19. ISP sent out an email explaining that you will get an all in one card. Check your spam folder. I know a few that have received the email and the card showed up a few weeks later. I would print out anything you can from the ISP and keep it on you. I would also contact ISP. We know they never make mistakes..lol
  20. The following is from an article discussing the denial of a preliminary injunction. Putting 2 and 2 together, I'd say Defense Distributed dropped the case rather than lose and have to appeal. The Reload

  23. That's great news, congratulations. I have a nephew we use to clay shoot with as a family. Felony drug charge, guns gone for life. Sad he can't hang with us ever, unless Jaba issues a pardon. That's Never.
