  1. Hades, there’s folks on here who claim to be “staunch 2A advocates” who are convinced D is the way to go. Supposedly intelligent people who cannot seem to grasp that “2A advocate” and “Democrat” are mutually exclusive terms. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️
  2. So you base your vote on who you think will win regardless of their stance on issues?? How sad.
  3. An adult is an adult — PERIOD. There are tons of examples of folks (of ALL ages) incapable of being “responsible” adults. Doesn’t change the fact that they are indeed adults. If you are an adult you are (and should be) entitled to all the rights and privileges of being an adult — until such time as you surrender some of those through your adjudicated actions.
  4. Is your FOID actually renewing, or is it simply auto-extending the expiration to co-incide with your FOID. Does anyone in this situation actually see a FOID expiration well past CCL expiration??? Or do you all see them being the same date?
  5. Reading all of this I feel so damn lucky to have actual physical cards in hand that expire in 2031 (FOID) and 2024 (CCL)…. ETA: here’s hoping that when these expire renewals are no longer necessary, at least certainly for FOID, and hopefully for CCL….
  6. Serious Question because I’m old and don’t always remember details…. Didn’t Illinois Supreme Court rule that FOID was not required to possess firearms within one’s home? If so, then even if FOID is revoked, isn’t it still legal to possess firearms within one’s home since the FOID isn’t required to do so? Or is that Illinois Supreme Court case still pending or one of those fancy rulings that only applies to specific folks owning the super secret decoder rings?
  7. Perhaps another question is: If a soldier cannot be compelled to obey an unlawful order can a law enforcement officer be compelled to enforce an unconstitutional law??
  8. Words should fail. With respect to semi-automatic rifles there’s this for historical context,,,,, A hundred and fifteen years ago, in 1907, our great grandparents were first able to buy the rifle pictured below. The semi-auto Winchester Model 1907. This is a gun they could buy from a Sears catalogue and have delivered via US Post. It was/is a semi-automatic, high powered centerfire rifle, with a detachable, high capacity magazine. About 400,000 of these semi-automatic rifles were produced before WW2. Civilians had hundreds of thousands of these over those 40 years, all the while US soldiers were still being issued old fashioned bolt action rifles. The 1907 fired just as fast as an AR15 or AK47 and the bullet (.351 Winchester) was actually larger than those fired by the more modern looking weapons.. The ONLY FUNCTIONAL difference between the 1907 and a controversial and much feared AR15 is the modern black plastic stock. The semi auto rifle was not a weapon of war. The government MADE IT a weapon of war 40 years after civilians had them.
  9. No, it’s because “assault weapon” was too limiting. Semi-automatic rifle encompasses the entire class instead of just them scary black rifles…… and needs no definition. Remember the previous AWBs missed some in their definitions of what an AWB was. Banning all Semi-Automatic rifles catches everything. It’s a rifle - check, it’s a semi-automatic - check, it’s banned. Besides, in liberal minds, AWBs were shot down by SCOTUS, but they didn’t say nothing about Semi-Automatic Rifle bans…..
  10. Hmmm, so ONE example on the abortion front is sufficient, So if we can find just one example of an AR being used legally for self defense then all AR’s could be deemed legal…. Is that how it works?
  11. Lay out today’s paper, clearly showing today’s date, pile your mags on the paper and take a picture of them. While the city attorney might not “accept” this proof he’ll be hard pressed to disprove it.
  12. Yep, gestapo tactics….. oh, wait, wrong party, NEVER MIND…… https://justthenews.com/government/federal-agencies/doj-overreach-intensifies-triggering-increased-scrutiny
  13. Perhaps someone ought to point out that “mass shootings” are more prevalent under Democrat Presidents than under Republican Presidents. Perhaps we ought to ban Democrat Presidents……
  14. Why should they understand it when you have two-thirds of the triumvirate of power in the US Government declaring active war against the remaining third?? You have a sitting President, Vice President and numerous elected members of the Legislative Branch actively libeling and slandering members of the Judicial Branch.
  15. So, in other words, it’s recognition by ISP of the number of days they have denied someone their rights under color of law???
  16. Despite the belief that the northeastern corner of the state constitutes the “whole state”, it doesn’t. CDNN policy doesn’t restrict shipping standard cap mags (over 10 rounds) to southern, and other parts of, Illinois….
  17. The Supreme Court won’t do that because THEY HAVE NO POWER to do so! SCOTUS has no power to enforce their rulings, they must rely on the Legislative and Executive branches to do that.
  18. Perhaps they are using the same justifications others on here are using for the Governor’s race — picking the candidates they “think” have the “best chance” without much thought to what their actual stances on thing are…..
  19. Keep in mind, SCOTUS does not, and really can not enforce their decisions. Any enforcement actions would need originate from the DOJ. How do you think that’s going to go? The only other option for regular folks is to, once again, turn to the courts and it’s long drawn out process…
  20. If you go to U-Haul or a moving company you might be able to get wardrobe boxes as well. Instead of misc appliances sitting around it just looks like you’ve started packing….
  21. Basically they punted. Kicked the can down the road. We don’t like the question, nor the way you asked it, so we’re sending it back for you to try again.
  22. Problems with one card/two cards/e-cards, expiration date/no expiration date, printing problems, …. ad nauseam….. Here’s a novel idea that solves ALL those problems — go without them all! Permitless Constitutional Carry, you know, like half the States in the Union!
  23. Hmmm, and here though it was actually a mailer pointing out his strong points and urging us to vote for him. LOL
