  1. The GOP has been way, way behind on the pot legalization issue. Look at how it drew young voters in Colorado to vote (and of course vote for commies). But hur dur drugs are bad. If the GOP would have been pushing for pot legalization we could have moved elections across the country in our favor for six or eight years.
  2. Another plug for Target Sports shipping to Chicago. Ordered Monday, they said due to high volume order may be delayed. Order arrived Saturday. Classic under promise and over deliver.
  3. Hap!!!!! Don't leave us!!! Every time someone escapes the prison, ten prisoners get shot.
  4. From a political strategy standpoint, it might be smart for him to appear neutral on weapons bills. He knows that gun owners are going to vote R by a landslide, and only going to really dislike him if he works against a bill we like. By appearing neutral, even if he secretly supports it, it removes an attack vector for the next election. And as gun owners, we do want him re-elected over the D challenger.
  5. I recently received shipments to Chicago from: * Blue Ridge Firearms * Cajun Ammo
  6. SG Ammo responded negatively. They are on our hopeless list.
  7. Rare Ammo sent this tentative but promising response: I responded back to her with more information.
  8. LAX Ammo declined to ship to Chicago. My email: LAX Ammo response: I sent them a follow up response. We'll see what happens.
  9. For research purposes, I was hoping to get some examples of FOID revocation letters. I'm not interested in personal info. Redacted scans, or copies of the wording are what I'm after. In particular I want to see if the revocation reason is stated, and how that portion is worded. This will shed some light on how much "due process" is involved. Thanks.
  10. Opinion, another win http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/05/18/supreme-court-says-convicted-felons-can-sell-their-guns/ 2015-05-18 Henderson v US 13-1487_l6gn.pdf
  11. That looks like it would be helpful. Maybe it could even be pinned when it's completed, or posted on Google docs as a public document?
  12. I love how the unconstitutional owner licensing schemes are turned around on the anti's and used against them.
  13. Not sure on instructor; appears "no" for non-resident permit: https://ccl4illinois.com/ccw/Public/similarsummary.pdf "Maryland - no response"
  14. Arrg can't download PDF thanks for your efforts - keep a fire lit under their arse
  15. Do I take that as the NRA will not support an open carry case? Since concealed carry can be regulated or prohibited etirely in public, doesn't that leave open carry as the only other means in states where concealed carry restrictions prohibit otherwise lawful gun owners from public carry? I think the NRA doesn't like open defiance, and would prefer people to try to follow the process their representatives put in place, watch it fail, and then support a case. Basically, the would prefer to take a cautious and circumspect route rather than supporting someone who wants to throw down a double dog dare. I don't see it as an open vs. concealed issue.
  16. They already said there is no right to carrying concealed weapons in the Heller case. That is most likely why they haven't taken a case from Gura. They were all licensed concealed carry cases. I think it's time to rethink his frivolous strategy. District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, (2008) Robertson v Baldwin 165 U.S. 275 (1897) " .....the right of the people to keep and bear arms (Art. II) is not infringed by laws prohibiting the carrying of concealed weapons;.." Didn't Puerta basically agree with that, but say that you have to allow one or the other - open or concealed?
  17. What do we have in the works for a cleanup bill for the next legislative session? This seems like an obvious issue to include a correction for. Paper applications too.
  18. I did some research on second call defense including an email exchange with their organization. They appear to be a somewhat new company. I wish them the best of luck but was not comfortable dealing with a newer company, especially since a case in the Chicago or Cook county area could be exceptionally challenging and expensive. However everyone has to start somewhere, so maybe they will find success in less challenging areas. To their credit, the person I e-mailed was very responsive. I think both Second Call and the company affiliated with the NRA are associated with Lloyd's of London.
