  1. One of the dumbest ideas to come out of Chicago in a long time. And that's a pretty high bar.
  2. My ISRA membership was supposed to auto-renew on May 31st. It didn't happen. Saved me some $$. They won't see a dime from me until there is a leadership change. I don't have money to waste on groups that screw us over.
  3. There is no doubt that the FOID Act is garbage and was based on the racist attitudes of the Dems in the 1960s. There is also no doubt that it is a total failure. Unfortunately I don't think there is a realistic chance that the courts will toss it. I see this bill as taking a page from the NY legislature that made just enough of a change to their draconian gun laws that it gave the courts an excuse to avoid the case by saying it was moot.
  4. Unless it is mandated through the courts Illinois will get constitutional carry about the same time the devil needs a parka and pigs fly.
  5. Because Illinois would rather us be unarmed victims.
  6. Some years ago Fox Lake was doing them for $5-10 as I recall. You did not have to be a resident. It may have changed, but worth a call to the non-emergency number if you live in that part of the county.
  7. These idiots keep getting elected...isn't that evidence of how irresponsible the majority of people if this state are?
  8. The state is bankrupt. Yep...financially, morally, and ethically bankrupt!!
  9. That's about how long it took to renew my Utah permit last fall. Amazing how these states can handle a renewal in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost that it takes here in the People's Republic of Illinois...and if you have a question you can get a real person on the phone in minutes,
  10. I am way more concerned about EOs issued by President Harris after the Dems 25th Amendment Biden out of the picture. Biden is a traditional politician and will be inclined to play the political game. Harris is an extreme left wing ideologue that is only concerned with getting the desired result.
  11. That poor lady is going to die of old age waiting for this fiasco to finally be settled.
  12. My wife let her FOID expire years ago. Early last month she applied for a new one. It arrived in the mail today. Just under 30 days. Every so often the ISP can do things in a timely manner.
  13. Wow...we just drove past Ocala about 45 minutes ago. And for the record, my daughter and I were both carrying.
  14. Haven't carried at Walmart yet, but did at Bass Pro in Gurnee while helping my daughter try to decide on a carry gun. Definitely felt strange at first but after an hour or so I almost forgot it was there.
