  1. From the perspective of a guy who's state has a republican legislative body due only to gerrymandering, it's not so bad when it's your guys doing it. It's so bad here we keep getting sued. They've redrawn the maps to satisfy the court and gave an extra seat to the democrats. Post census, we get to draw them again. We'll be sending an extra republican to Washington in 2022 to make up for your "loss" of Kinzinger.
  2. Seems like post counts changed quit a bit.
  3. Oooh. Imagine my surprise when the page laoded and the format changed. Looks great! And it's a HTTPS now!
  4. Seems related to this mess published by a know left outlet: Scholar Carol Anderson on the "anti-Blackness" coded into the Second Amendment (msn.com) From the article" So the key here is anti-Blackness. The key for the Second Amendment is the ability to have a militia to control Black people, to stop slave revolts and to keep Black people subjugated. It was part of the deal that was cut that allowed the South to be able to sign on to the Constitution. They needed to be protected. And I talk about these deals a lot, with the three-fifths clause, the extension of 20 years for the Atlantic slave trade, the fugitive slave clause, which were put in the Constitution because the South demanded that kind of protection in order to sign on. Sounds like revisionist history to me.
  5. I called the IL DMV to find out if they were real texts, and they confirmed they were. I was curious about the phishing also. For clarification, did you call the number included with the text or a number you looked up independently. The number they include in the text could very well go right back the the entity that sent the text and that entity is just as suspect as the text.
  6. You owe them nothing, including a call back. I've been getting texts suggesting that I need to clarify DVM info. I block sender and delete them. Could be phishing. Don't trust the phone number or link on a text message. If any government agency wants something from me they can write me a letter to my current address of record. This is pretty standard.
  7. I've long held my tongue on my opinion of ISRA. When the chairman appoints the board, and the board appoints the chairman there's a conflict of interest. That detail of their org always kept me on the sidelines when ISRA was involved. Now that ISRA can no longer affect my life, and they seem to have decided a chair at the table with the weasels in Springfield is more important than the people who pay their dues, call the reps, write the reps and make the fight an actual fight it's time to call them out as what they are. Self Important traitors. Snake oil salesmen. No better than the weasels in Springfield. In fact, their presence at the table isn't what they thought it was. They weren't there to make sausage, they were the sausage. Now they've been eaten by the weasels and exist only as weasel poop. Sorry you guys and gals got the shaft. There's greener pastures. Lots of us former Illinois folks tested the waters and they're fine. I know I sure could use some neighbors like y'all.
  8. It's a gun grab. It's also a registry. The mayor said on CNN that he's (paraphrased) targeting law abiding gun owners. When someone call the police for a domestic issue the dispatcher will ask if there's gun in the house. If you answer yes, but the city hasn't taxed you and there's no insurance paperwork as mandated then you're no longer law abiding and the police can sieze the guns.
  9. Maybe it would be appropriate to hang up some photos of Otis in your business area where customers might wait around. Put a small plaque under the 8X10 of Otis and explain why he's the patron saint of self defense in Chicago. See if that gets them talking and interested.
  10. The effect is likely going to be the end of private sales. By design of course.
  11. I'm so sorry that this is the government good people in Illinois are stuck with. I'm following the saga from safety, but I still get a pit in my stomach everytime I hit "refresh" to see what Keith has added to the live blogging.
  12. Not familiar with the Hellcat because Springfield is on my do not buy list. They haven't been forgiven. Trijicon HD has a u notch rear sight with a big bright front dot and tritium. I've got these on my Shield.
  13. I'd say no chance of grandfathering and anti gun illinois will enjoy squeezing you guys out of your pistols if you aren't prepared to change the barrels and make them 16"+ rifles. I read that folks in Maryland can only have an AK in pistol form. This kills that for them and the only real option available to them is to forfeit the firearm. I'm sure other places have this problem too. This doesn't affect all, or even most, AK/AR pistols, only those with the arm braces would be banned under this rule (and it would actually be the brace that gets banned, not the pistol itself) Was just repeating what I had read. Sorry if it's not true, I don't claim to be an expert. Thanks for the clarification.
  14. Here's an example of what you're facing: I think the method of telescoping on rails is considered part of a known design, add points. The telescoping itself also counts again as it's own points. I'll add to that the sights might not be deemed useful at arms length so that adds points too. I think I read that the velcro strap being tightened up like that indicates intent to use as a stock, more points. If the strap is too short to go around your arm, points. Then you consider the length and weight unloaded with a magazine. The Surefire light/switches looks like an indication that the gun is intended to be shot with two hands...automagically SBR. And after all that the enforcement guys can simply opine it's a SBR anyway.
