  1. Several posters in other threads have mentioned this one. Let's bump it back up to the top so it doesn't get lost.
  2. Posts 1 and 2 have been updated to reflect CCLRB outcomes through July 2018. I added this note to post 2:
  3. Or, you could just join the military. 29 years and counting--it's been a good experience for me. But seriously, so sorry for your pain. I hope you are able to get this resolved quickly.
  4. After reading through the ordinance I would agree that it doesn’t actually ban so-called “large capacity” magazines.
  5. If Im accurately reading between the lines, Alan Gura (works often with SAF) is wondering the same thing: https://twitter.com/alangura/status/984166207187243009?s=21
  6. I attached the reports for Sep, Oct, and Nov 2017 to post #1 and updated the 2016-2017 summary attachment in post #2. Will add the Dec report and summarize all of 2017 when it is available.
  7. In Illinois I could only “FOID transport” into Walmart. Ohio recognizes my PA license so there are no such restrictions here for nonresidents. Nice!
  8. And to think this thread began with this simple observation:
  9. Posts #1 and 2 have been updated with the latest reports (Jun-Aug 2017).
  10. Bravo.Whiskey, ATF regulations (mandated by the Brady Act) require proof of (1) identification and (2) residency. In most states, for typical residents, this translates to a driver's license with your photo and street address; that satisfies both requirements. Of course, under federal law, military members are considered residents of the state in which they are stationed with respect to buying/selling/transferring firearms. Per the ATF, military members can provide a military ID to satisfy the identification requirement, and a copy of orders to satisfy the "residency" requirement. In Illinois, the FOID is intended to cover both ID and residency requirements, and the state has already seen your orders to verify you qualify for a FOID. If Gander Mountain objects to the different addresses, I would simply plan to have my orders with me if there's a chance I will purchase there. IMHO it's not a big deal. In case you aren't aware, this state does NOT consider you a resident for purposes of obtaining a concealed carry license. You can buy and sell firearms here all you want but don't take them outside of your home or car unless they're unloaded and in a case! FYI, I'm at Scott AFB too but will PCS in a couple of weeks to a "free" state where I am free to defend myself outside of my home and car.
  11. If only we could find out how many backlogged applications fall into that category! Unfortunately, they won't release the data (FOIA-exempt). Do we have any self-reported data from applicants that could indicate the shortest possible turnaround time for a CCLRB review? Is anyone being cleared in the 1-3 month range?
  12. Thanks for the update, much appreciated. I'm just confused as to why they still have not reviewed my application yet? They have gone through over ~2800 people since I have been UBR. Last time I checked there were only ~2400 people UBR. What is going on? How incredibly frustrating! So sorry you're having to go through this. My best guess is that the CCLRB isn't handling these first-in, first-out. They are batch processing applications with similarities they believe may be easier to clear first. See my post #33 above.
  13. I just updated the first two posts with the latest data from March, April, and May 2017.
  14. My opinion only--without preemption in the UUW statute, your questions can only be answered by reading the municipal codes and accompanying penalties for each area you transit. You wouldn't be charged with violating state law, due to SB607, but could still be charged with violating a local ordinance.
  15. Not sure of the actual number of nonresidents who have FOIDs. There are at least 25K or 30K that are eligible. Nevertheless, most nonresidents don't qualify. Holmes doesn't help us here. The IL Supreme Court ruling addressed two issues: unloaded and in a case / accessibility, and a unified reading of both the UUW statute and the FOID Act as they apply to possession of firearms. It is the latter issue that you are probably thinking of here. The FOID Act allows possession of firearms, tasers, stun guns, and ammunition without a FOID card under specific circumstances. Provisions include: The court said that Holmes was legal to possess a firearm because he did have a license to carry in Indiana, even if he didn't have it with him. (As an aside, an actual physical license isn't required; a more recent Federal court ruling in the Central District Court of Illinois concluded that "allowed to possess" in one's home state is what this section of the statute really means.) But the FOID Act doesn't mention knives, nor does the proposed switchblade bill add anything about them. The bill only makes changes to the UUW/AUUW statute. So neither of these nonresident exemptions in the FOID Act apply to nonresident possession of switchblades. It's an important nuance because if the bill passes, the headlines will say that Illinois no longer bans switchblade knives for FOID holders, and nonresidents used to bringing firearms into the state under the FOID exemptions might assume they would also be legal carrying a switchblade into the state, too. They would be mistaken. Nevertheless, the legislation is progress and it's encouraging to see the level of support it is receiving. .
  16. Just an observation, in case the question comes up: Nonresidents will not be covered by this bill unless they have a FOID. The current FOID Act allows nonresidents to possess firearms and ammunition in the state without a FOID card. SB607 does not add switchblades to this list. Nonresidents who qualify for and have a FOID will be allowed to possess a switchblade, but other nonresidents will not.
  17. I haven't yet requested the reports covering March and April. I plan to request the next batch mid-June to cover March through May.
