  1. I'm curious how this statement even came about. Was Mr Sullivan asked about the ISRA's support of HB562?
  2. Once upon a time when I wrote email alerts for an Illinois organization, I asked the ILGA webmasters for the ability to add more params to the constructed URL for a witness slip, so that opponent or proponent could be filled in by the URL, along with "notice of appearance only." They never answered me back, AFAIK. I even mentioned that such a move would not benefit one side or another, but all participants. Oh well.
  3. Did she submit fingerprints at any point? Is there an expiration date on the card?
  4. The answer is... they are idiots. (from this Jew who's not handing his over.) >>>>Have they forgotten what happened to them when they unilaterally disarmed themselves in the late 1920s and early 30s? The Nazis mandated that and the country followed along. Germany was "too civilized" for commoners to need firearms, unless hunting.
  5. Guns in cars with tinted windows? Oh the horror! I've never liked tinted windows, and understood there was a threat to LEOs.
  6. He lives in Aurora, lost a few aldermanic races there, is a democratic socialist promoting other socialists. Here's a few points to remember folks: This laser etching is called "ammunition serialization", putting one or more tracking numbers on each bullet and casing. This is different than microstamping. But like microstamping, it's a 20 year old idea that is going nowhere and has been adopted by no one. But the owners of the intellectual property (the patents) are still out there trying to gin up interest and even have model legislation posted for wannabe saviors of humanity to run in their state legislatures. Someone from the ILGA runs a bill every session, like Sonia Harper. We have seen it before, we will see it again. Mauserme, Molly B, and the rest of us will stay vigilant.
  7. In other words, even though you can (a handgun is a handgun is a handgun), is it a prudent thing to do? There are a couple of places in the state where an AR-15 handgun and its magazine could cause a problem, even if there's no shooting.
  8. Please tell the court why you chose this ( insert any anti-gunner term for any AR-15 ) as your carry firearm.
  9. Overall, try to envision the long term consequences of this. Remember hearing about car theft, and how easy it was to steal a car in the past? And over several decades we now have cars that are hard to steal without the key. Because of surveillance cameras and tracking devices, one reason to steal a car is to be able to commit crimes without a trace back to the criminal. And now car theft has gone from a crime against unattended property to a crime against people. And the license plates, VIN, hidden serial numbers, OnStar, etc, only tie the car to whom it was stolen from. Now think about microstamping...
  10. Typically, it's coming from two places: the bolt face and the business end of the firing pin.
  11. Not sure why criminals would even bother with the microstamping one way or another? Think the markings would implicate anyone but the first legal purchaser?
  12. HB2541: Don't confuse ISRA intent with the inability to click on the right stuff. Neither Donald J Davis nor Jim Viviano represent ISRA in any capacity other than possibly being members. People from both sides make this mistake. HB3144: There you go. Is it the worst bill in the world? No. Is there a burning reason to not oppose it? fpppppppf.
  13. I would not be surprised if the USPS databases know which addresses have apts.
  14. There's clones of the original for those that don't want the differences/improvements.
