  1. So you have or have not applied for FOID?Youre coming up on 60 since applying? Cause its only 30 days till you expire if its 6/1 as you say! And if you applied 60 days ago, (as I read your post) you should get it sooner than later as they have 30 more days till it expires..... Gotta love Illinois, we need 60 days now, BUT we might have to take a full 90 don't call us we'll call you! Renewal submitted 3/7.
  2. I’m coming up on 60 days for my FOID renewal application - let’s see what they do. Mine’s valid until 6/1.
  3. I just found out my wife didn’t update her FOID when we got married last year. We just processed the name and address change, let’s see how long it takes.
  4. To be honest I'll probably rarely carry an automatic - I've found the same, that my little spring assist Chive is plenty fast for my needs. I have an automatic just because.
  5. No surprise, but Aurora has a ban on the books: Sec. 29-43. - Unlawful use of weapons. (a) A person commits the offense of unlawful use of weapons when he knowingly: (1) Sells, manufactures, purchases, possesses or carries any bludgeon, blackjack, slingshot, sand-club, sand-bag, metal knuckles, throwing star, butterfly knife, nunchaku (which shall be defined for purposes of this subsection as an instrument consisting of two (2) or more sticks, clubs, bars or rods to be used as handles, connected by a rope, cord, wire or chain, in the design of a weapon used in connection with the practice of a system of self-defense) or any knife, commonly referred to as a switchblade knife, which has a blade that opens automatically by hand pressure applied to a button, spring or other device in the handle of the knife; or a ballistic knife, which is a device that propels a knifelike blade as a projectile by means of a coil spring, elastic material or compressed gas; or
  6. I suspect this is why my friend's AO came USPS - it was an Illinois dealer.
  7. Yes but they cannot send them through the US mail. They have to ship via common carrier, i.e., UPS, Fed Ex, etc. Not to my "friend's" experience...
  8. This bill is pretty small potatoes compared to others on his desk. Patience...
  9. Anybody know how many LE we have in the state? I wonder if the number of FCCL holders is greater than the number of LE - I suspect it is.
  10. The rules they promuglate are reviewed and approved by the legislature. That's the whole purpose of JCAR.
  11. Exactly.... However, some of us are referring to the "face value" as being the sign creates a prohibited location. Thus, someone calling the police for seeing a gun and the licensee leaving with an arrest and misdemeanor charge instead of a gallon of milk or whatever else they went to buy. We understand the "intent" of the sign... But you cannot ignore the ambiguity of it. Exactly.
  12. I have no doubt that is the intent, but the reality is arguably different. Still no response to my email to Walmart corporate sent around noon on Thursday...
  13. For me, I wouldn't shop where the sign is posted, as it makes it a GFZ. I think from just reading the FAQ I can easily make that determination. On the other hand, I haven't visited my WM this week to see if it is posted, and I'm one to bet that it is as it seems to be the trend in the Chicagoland area (as it seems to be for most of the state now). Heading back into my corner to await the abuse that is sure to follow. Great find!
