  1. hmmm my number is wrong then. My number is 3 days later than it should be. Mine is also 3 days later... Yeah, I forgot a step.
  2. Thats close Its created using the first letter of your last name..... the soundex code of your last name..... first initial code + last initial code..... year.. and a formula consisting of the calendar day and gender of your birth For men, the last 5 digits of an IL driver’s license are the year of your birth and the Julian date of your birthday (001= Jan 1, 365 = Dec 31).
  3. Just checked. My Real ID driver’s license has the same number I’ve always had, but they did add my full middle name. My FOID and CCL have middle initial. I guess I’ll have to update that on next renewal.
  4. Dummy. It’s AFT. Biden said today- twice.
  5. The 5th amendment applies to "property". "nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation." Bump stock ban snuck by because it hasn’t been sufficiently challenged. If Biden, with (law) or without Congress (EO), outright bans guns and orders confiscation, you can bet your life it will end up in front of the SCOTUS, if it doesn’t already get overturned by a lower court.
  6. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Liberals get this, but Conservatives (politicians) believe that placating small demands will satisfy them. It doesn’t.
  7. At this point he's calling for a ban in general without referring to a specific bill. He's spoken of a ban that would not grandfather currently owned firearms and I'm sure he'd push for that if he can get it, but we'll have to wait and see. Banning future purchases or transfers is within the powers of a new law (NOT an EO). Confiscation would be in direct conflict with the 5th Amendment and would be an Ex Post Facto law, AKA unconstitutional. Even Bill Clinton didn’t try to go there. The true legacy of the Trump administration will be his SCOTUS appointments and their adhering to the Constitution.
  8. I don't have an issue with $20/$25. It's the $40/$50 that I am not thrilled with. I am not to thrilled with the 2 to 3 grand a year to keep my FFL ether. You will damn lucky if the fee is less than 50 bucks. Where are you located? I need a new FFL. My guy wouldn’t put up with the state BS.
  9. So naturally, the thing to do in that situation is penalize everyone.It is far less intrusive to punish actual criminals than to create them through regulations.If what the legislators really wanted was just to grant the ISP (a state agency) the authority to audit an FFL's transfer records (instead of requiring assistance from the ATF, a federal agency) if it suspected criminal activity, they could have written the licensing law that way, but they didn't.It has nothing to do with crime prevention. They dont want civilians to have guns. This was a way to make it harder for us to get them and an incremental step in their ultimate quest to ban and confiscate guns. FFL licensing wasnt the goal, it was a single action item on a long list for them.
  10. It's EXACTLY who they were trying to target. They know criminals don't buy guns through an FFL, so the law was never intended to stop any crime. They're purposely making it harder for law abiding citizens to get guns. End around gun control. It's an incremental step.
  11. This only shows the antis how they’re winning. Let them figure it out themselves.
  12. Here's how stupid it gets. I am a new resident of Tennessee. Sent my FOID and CCL into the ISP office. Sayonara. But if I come to ILLannoy, and go to a store to buy ammo, I can, and don't need (or have) a FOID. So I have more of a right to buy ammo in IL than an Illinois resident, who needs a FOID. Now THAT'S stupid! Good luck finding a store that will sell ammo to an out of state resident. They’re too scared.
  13. Dealing with the state of IL has to be torture for someone with OCD.
  14. 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.
  15. Simple answer is that is not the law- only FOID required. Better answer- shop somewhere else that knows the laws and actually has someone at the counter who knows the laws. Also, I would guess there is someone at Scott that has an FFL and has a very low or no transfer fee for military. I still get guns from someone that I flew with, but he is in NE Illinois.
  16. Glad to hear this was resolved quickly and Molly led the way. Illinois is a state....of confusion. Sad that they can "infringe" on your civil rights with the FOID card in the first place (imagine if they required a voter ID?) AND then they revoke your right without any type of hearing. Sad sad sad. I wish we were part of the USA.
  17. On principle, I dislike their stand. In reality, I have to ask who would buy a gun from Walmart? Effects me in 0 ways, even if they didn't sell them in IL.
  18. Any new information on Texas, we are doing a hog hunt in Feb 2016 and looks like our travels to Texas are covered on carrying, but not Texas, would be nice to travel all the way to San Antonio and back with some protection, in and out of the car. Texas honors Arizona license. Your IL training will get you the AZ license. Finger prints and $15.
  19. I don't think you understand the concept of "rights", if you think your constituents should have some privilege that others do not. Huh? I said I'd want my constituents to have the SAME rights when they visit Illinois that Illinois citizens have when they visit my state. No more, no less. It's an unknown concept to Illinoisans, but some legislators in other states actually treat their constituents as citizens and not subjects and they fight for their people.
  20. States do not grant rights, they are natural / come from God (depending on your beliefs). The Constitution requires states to respect them. Denying rights to individuals because of the actions of some government body is vindictive and asinine. CCW isn't truly a right (regardless of the 2A) as long as the SCOTUS recognizes unconstitutional state laws that require licensing. You don't need a license for a right. Until CCW is recognized as a right under the 2A, ALL licenses from every state should be recognized by ALL states. I'm not trying to deny anyone's rights. My point is that everyone's rights should be recognized. And if I were a legislator in another state, I'd be fighting for my constituents rights, first and foremost and against states that deny the rights of my citizens.
