  1. I was at the Illinois State Fair today and stopped by the ISP/FSB desk in the Illinois Building. I asked about my FOID originally expiring on September 1, but having been extended to my 2024 CCL expiration. I was told that my CCL will now act as my FOID as well and that I can download and save my E-FOID if I went to purchase a gun and they wanted a recent time-stamped version. When I renew my CCL in a couple of years, it'll be the new combo card. Maybe they'll have that figured out better by then.
  2. Our 'team' immediately condemned the actions at the US Capitol on Jan 6, 2021. I don't recall anybody on our 'team' collecting money and offering to pay bail for those who were arrested for their actions that day. Your 'team' aided and abetted the rioting, looting, and burning in major cities across the country and many on your 'team' still seem to celebrate those actions. If our entire 'team' actually wanted to "overthrow the country", I'm pretty sure things would have went a lot differently that day.
  3. I received my renewal notice the other day. Haven't had a chance to look at it yet. Now I won't even bother.
  4. The Opinions says, "Consider, for example, Heller’s discussion of “longstanding” “laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings.”... Although the historical record yields relatively few 18th- and 19th-century “sensitive places” where weapons were altogether prohibited—e.g., legislative assemblies, polling places, and courthouses—we are also aware of no disputes regarding the lawfulness of such prohibitions. ... We therefore can assume it settled that these locations were “sensitive places” where arms carrying could be prohibited consistent with the Second Amendment. And courts can use analogies to those historical regulations of “sensitive places” to determine that modern regulations prohibiting the carry of firearms in new and analogous sensitive places are constitutionally permissible." and Kavanaugh says this in his concurring opinion: "[N]othing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms." These make it sound like it might be difficult to eliminate some of the prohibited places.
  5. This sounds like even "strict scrutiny" is too lenient? "We reiterate that the standard for applying the Second Amendment is as follows: When the Second Amendment’s plain text covers an individual’s conduct, the Constitution presumptively protects that conduct. The government must then justify its regulation by demonstrating that it is consistent with the Nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation. Only then may a court conclude that the individual’s conduct falls outside the Second Amendment’s 'unqualified command'."
  6. So will I get a new FOID card or not? My FOID Card shows an expiration of September 2022. My CCL Card shows an expiration of July 2024 (Renewed in 2019). When I renewed my CCL in 2019, I received a new FOID with a number and Issued date matching my CCL but still expiring later this year. I logged into my ISP account tonight and found that my FOID (online) now shows an expiration date that matches my CCL but a "Printed" date from when I renewed my CCL. I know it's a bit premature to worry about it, but this is ILL-ANNOY and I fully expect them to screw it all up...
  7. This was on the login screen for the FOID/CCL page today. So I guess my FOID really doesn't expire later this year (2022) and will be extended until my CCL expires in 2025. (Edited to add that my expiration date also says "COVID-19")
  8. The only places I've noticed are the statute-banned places like hospitals, parks, government buildings, bars, rest areas, etc. All the other places that I go aren't posted.
  9. So he has to stay home from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.? Wonder what 'job' he could have that would require being free during those hours...
  10. By responding to posts and offering info or opinions. Or by saying IBTL, or IN BEFORE THE LOCK, in whole or in part, many, many, many times...
  11. I would think that “McLean County Department of Parks and Recreation” is a “Park District” within the meaning of the Law. I was looking at Illinois laws about parks and came across 70 ILCS 1205, which is the Illinois Park District Code. It sounds like a "Park District" is a specific sort of entity with its own elected governing body (Commissioners, etc.). Is this what the concealed carry act was referring to? This makes me wonder if the McLean County Department Parks and Recreation could have been formed under this code since its Director appears to be appointed by the County Board and it doesn't appear to be organized under 70 ILCS 1205. As usual, Illinois' concealed carry law leaves me somewhat confused and questioning... Comlara Park is about 10-15 miles North of Normal and, as I said before, I haven't been up there in a while so maybe I'll take a trip to see if it's posted.
  12. (13) Any public park, athletic area, or athletic facility under the control of a municipality or park district... Comlara Park is just North of Bloomington/Normal and under the control of the McLean County Department of Parks and Recreation. Since McLean County isn't a "municipality", I wondered if its Parks and Rec Dept be classified as a "park district"? Should carry be permissible there as it is in a State Park? I haven't been there for some time and don't know if anything there is posted.
  13. Even better. I was once mailed a bill for 26 cents. Yes, they spent 40 cents on a stamp to bill me for 26 cents. Not to mention the printing, paper, envelope and administrative time they wasted. I taped a quarter and a penny to the invoice and wrote "you have got to be kidding me" on it and mailed it back. Had a Security Clearance held-up by a $0.29 bill from a gas company at a previous duty station. I mailed them a check and requested a receipt to give to the FBI as proof that I had paid it. Figured it had to have cost them more than that...idiots!
  14. Our son works at Walmart and my wife and I were there shopping one day while he was at work. He joked that he had a Taser in his bag. I 'joked' that I had that beat. Conversation changed rather abruptly after that remark. LOL He's taking his CC class next week with his older brother. Our daughter will be very jealous when she finds out! Everybody in my house has their FOID, except my wife...I'm working on that.
  15. Congrats GAAK. Went to Wally-World, CI Shooting Sports for a little range time, Steak n Shake, and Schnuck's today; all in Bloomington-Normal.
