  1. I'd make the joke "You must be new here", but sadly what you described is how a lot of legislation, especially legislation they want to ram through, gets passed in Illinois. When the next legislative session gets going, you'll see a lot of posts about shell bills and shenanigans like this. It's difficult to stay on top of it all.
  2. Guns & Gadgets thinks a SCOTUS ruling is expected soon. https://youtu.be/c0fGjB1ruHQ
  3. Assuming the interpretation is as bad as it sounds, the split receiver ruling is going to affect a LOT of business. If someone wants to buy a separate upper, either stripped or complete, will you have to go through an FFL now?

    It's been awhile since I've tried to wrap my brain around a statistical problem like that. Did you calculate the R2 value for your linear plot? The spread in values seems larger, but it's still linearish. I didn't take a close look at the charts. Are the data points from the 2002 PDF the same as the 2015 chart you presented? If so, then it's only the additional that are messing with the linear plot.
  5. I expect no charges to be filed, just like in this incident in Washington, D.C., when NBC reporter David Gregory was in possession of magazines in violation of existing law: https://wtop.com/news/2013/01/nbc-host-violated-dc-law-wont-face-charges/
  6. I don't recall (and Google isn't helping) if the ATF promised to seek out all the owners of all the bump stocks, though. I believe they've said that's the plan here. I presume a vast majority of sales are easily traceable thanks to internet and credit card purchases, and I suspect a simple, "I don't have it any more" will get you a lot of ATF-style loving. I don't own a FRT, but if I did I'm not sure I'd want to be a test case.

    So where do we all meet you on Saturday with an armload of different rimfire ammunition so we can try it out, for science? Looking forward to the review!

    I'm curious if it'll be a jam-o-matic like the Mosquito. Only CCI Minimags feed my Mosquito and keep it happy. Anything else is only good for practicing malfunction-clearing exercises.
  9. Interesting how most of his quotes are actually in quotation marks, but that last quote wasn't. Was that an actual thing he said, or was that a quote mis-assembled from a couple of other things he said, perhaps in regards to waiting for a new FOID?
  10. "Best" is such a poor choice of words. "Most politically skilled" instead would apply, but that political skill was always applied towards gain for himself and his party. If he had to throw the brakes on some of his colleagues' wackier ideas, it was because he understood the game, not because he was doing it to help the other side of the aisle.
  11. Thanks for the play-by-play of that train wreck, mauser.
  12. I hope you're right, but I don't trust them that much. I refiled.
  13. Track the new slips Original: https://my.ilga.gov/Hearing/WitnessSlipInfo/137415?hearingid=19156&LegislationDocumentId=172797&GridCurrentCommittees-page=3 HCA1: https://my.ilga.gov/Hearing/WitnessSlipInfo/137415?hearingid=19156&LegislationDocumentId=176006&GridCurrentCommittees-page=3
  14. Create new witness slips here: Original bill: https://my.ilga.gov/WitnessSlip/Create/137415?committeeHearingId=19156&LegislationId=137415&LegislationDocumentId=172797&GridCurrentCommittees-page=3 HCA1: https://my.ilga.gov/WitnessSlip/Create/137415?committeeHearingId=19156&LegislationId=137415&LegislationDocumentId=176006&GridCurrentCommittees-page=3
  15. They issued a new meeting for it with all new witness slips needed. If you filed for the Call to Action for the previous blast for HB4296 and its HCA1, you'll need to refile for the 2 pm meeting.
  16. Seriously, the committee reconvened and has a whole new set of slips to fill out for the 2 pm meeting. Redone!
  17. Got 'em all. Could not imagine doing that whole list without having a saved profile at ILGA.
  18. Done. Sen. Harmon, likely: "Only 410 people support this. MILLIONS of FOID holders must be opposed to this bill, otherwise they would have voted in support as well."
  19. I can only assume the approach is to keep repeating the same phrases over again until they are pounded into everybody's heads. I didn't watch the press conference, but I'm sure he filled somebody's buzzword bingo card. I know he used "Weapons of war" and "Glock", and I'm guessing "high capacity", "common sense", and "assault-style" or "military-style" all made their appearance. Every new first-time gun owner from the past year two years needs to understand that they really are coming for your guns... Maybe not today or tomorrow, but with every little bite they get at the apple, soon there will be no apple left.
  20. So the bills are on the schedule but won't be heard in the committee? Ok, if you say so, but call me skeptical. The NRA-ILA just sent out an alert about the bills.
  21. Did this one. Will there be calls to action on any of the bills currently scheduled to be heard in the Judiciary - Criminal Committee on Tuesday the 25th? https://my.ilga.gov/Hearing/HearingDetail/18941?HCommittees1/30/2022-page=1&HCommittees1/30/2022-orderBy=&HCommittees1/30/2022-filter=&committeeid=0&chamber=H&nodays=7&_=1642995620024
  22. Done last night. It looks like the other side got the word out for three of the four (HB3661 the exception). Opponents still leading, but they aren't one-sided polls. Don Harmon would likely say that with only a few hundred opposed to each one, those who didn't file a slip must be in favor.
  23. Wow, just catching up on all this nonsense. I was out of town and saw the video from Guns & Gadgets about this, but didn't quite follow what he was saying. Now that I'm up to speed... I didn't see any mention about simply handling a firearm. I don't know if it's law or just common CYA practice, but dealers want to see your FOID just so you can handle a firearm in the store, nevermind purchase one. Are they going to have to validate those interactions in, too?
  24. I took her comment about "getting the guns off them" to mean when the carjackers stopped pointing their guns at them. Otherwise, how could her husband have started shooting at them after that happened? As for Senators having special privileges, I wouldn't be surprised to find there's a carve-out for them somewhere. This. It seems like every other time a CCL-holder is involved in a shooting, the headline invariably reads "Concealed carry holder shoots..." The fact that somebody was able to dig the facts up was impressive, but the police certainly weren't forthcoming with that information.
