According to the Southern District's website:
In light of the public health crisis due to the COVID-19 virus and per reasons set forth in Amended Administrative Order #266, public access to hearings is available via teleconference as noted in PACER/CMECF.

It's unfortunate that IL politicians don't have a primum non nocere oath.
They violate their oath to uphold the Constitution all the time, so what would stop them from violating this?
Ever since the site was updated, this feature no longer works for me either. I've just learned to live with it.

Part of the problem is the politicians, ALL of them, are more interested in their "powers" than doing anything substantive.
Look at how republicans left Trump twisting in the wind during 2016-2018 when they had majorities in both houses of Congress and could aid the WH. But they didn't and now we are here.
The problem is that you need 60 votes in the Senate for cloture and you are unable to get anything done without the 60 votes to stop a filibuster. Nominations are the exception which only require 50% (it is assumed that the VP who is the president pro tempore of the Senate will cast the tie breaking vote in favor of the presidential appointee and the VP only votes in the case of a tie.) IIRC a bill was filed for national reciprocity during Trump's term, but was never brought to a vote because the votes for cloture weren't there. If I also recall correctly, Rs only held 52 or 53 seats at the time.
I think Todd should write him a letter asking him for a contribution for legal fees to help overturn this unconstitutional garbage. And perhaps he should be reported for an ethics violation if the link for contributions for this purpose go to his campaign instead.
Seeing how the people you look to punish with this proposed law are the exact same people you need to vote for it, this is doomed before it is even drafted.
I'm surprised it didn't say "mostly compliant".

That's a loophole that needs to be closed next session.

Does it look like he's ever skipped a meal?

I'll add that the case was filed in the Federal District of Northern Illinois, so that's where the jury would be sourced. Northern Illinois is divided onto two divisions.
The eastern division includes Cook, DuPage, McHenry, Grundy, Kane, Kendall, La Salle, Lake, and Will counties.
The western division includes Boone, Carroll, DeKalb, Jo Daviess, Lee, Ogle, Stephenson, Whiteside, and Winnebago counties.
Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, and Lake counties are called out specifically in the complaint. I'm not sure if one county in the west, while the rest are in the east, was by design or fortune. I'm also not sure how the jury pool would be apportioned among those counties in the jurisdiction. Obviously Cook is the most populous.
It could be fun if the jury would come from northern counties EXCEPT those four, just to be fair, but I don't know how the federal courts would work that.
Maybe they know they won't win on the law, so they're just playing the game that gives them better odds than 0%. I can only speculate.
McHenry county is in the Western Division.

-Pritzker might try running in 2024, and an AWB under his belt would be useful in the primaries, especially since he can brag that "he got it done but Biden couldn't"
The only person Pritzer should be going up against is Joey Chestnut.
There. Figured out how to quote it.
The only person Pritzker should be going up against is Joey Chestnut is the funniest thing I have heard all year. For those who don't recognize the name, he is the Nathan's hot dog eating champion 15 years running. Holds world record of 76 hot dogs and buns in 10 min. If anyone can unseat him, it would be JB.
Here's what the data says about "assault weapons":
Why were you pulled off to the side at the airport? You said it was because you have a plate in your shoulder. Their metal detectors must have detected it.
Or buy off the rack, like I have done for every holster I own .
Neither have I.
It will be reversed en banc. Logic is meaningless to the ninth circus.
Actually, it was dismissed on causation grounds. The court stated that even if the Plaintiff had proved causation, the court would still have dismissed the complaint on public policy grounds as the alleged negligence was too remote from the injury. The actions of the killer constituted a superseding cause, alleviating the Defendants of liability. (Order at pgs 20-21.)
Foid renewal 242 days til approval, 6 days to arrive in mail. Only saving grace is expiration date is 10 years from date of issue, not from the expiration of the old one. Don't tell Jabba that I got 5 months for free. There will be a bill to "fix" that next session.
That would even get Crocodile Dundee's attention. lol
Or if you ever get to Wisconsin, they have been legal there for the past year and a half. Lots of places to just walk in and buy one.
I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to knives, more so automatic knives. Can someone recommend one for around $50-$60?
Here is one. S30V steel too.
I don't know if they will ship to an Illinois address, but be aware that they are still illegal to possess as of right now. I personally have acquired two recently, shipped to a Wisconsin address. They will remain in Wisconsin until legal to possess in Illinois.
Buy now from Illinois company; don't worry about Federal laws shipping across state lines.

Fact is, they are still illegal to possess in Illinois for another 8 days or so. I have already checked out their site a month ago when I first heard of them though.
