  1. Isn't it a 3-year stretch felony for a prosecutor or law enforcement agent to deliberately tamper with or suppress evidence evidence that would be exculpatory to a defendant?
  2. Meaningless, you have no idea what happened prior to the start of the video.Im not here to prove innocence or guilt, thats for the courts to decide. Just pointing out no matter how hard you want to adopt these liberal idiots as your 2nd amendment saviors theres more to it than homeowners castle doctrine vs BLM. That being said, please post more footage, Im very curious to know how the gate got destroyed. Was it the white people that always show up at peaceful BLM protests and cause it to turn into a violent mob? (as the McCloskeys claim) http://www.illinoiscarry.com/forum/uploads/monthly_07_2020/post-14647-0-09883100-1595389177.jpg
  3. Will I have to change my signature photo? One can only hope!
  4. I know exactly what you mean. I am a disabled combat vet, who has been shooting for over 40 years, had scads of high-skill military shooting training, teach self-protection to very at-risk groups of people (who are all favored groups by progressive agendas and causes, just so happens), and have jumped through every hoop known to man to prove that I am "one of the good ones"—and yet, this state has literally taken legal steps to try to prevent me from exercising the Constitutionally protected rights that I fought and sacrificed permanently for. Thankfully, they lost in my case, but I see this kind of thing so often, and many of the people it happens to don't have the resources or the energy to go toe-to-toe with the rights-infringing government of this clown-car of a state, and they end up losing those freedoms that we fought for. That's what's truly deplorable.
  5. We've discussed creating a situation where the state is forced to take this to court, to force the issue, as a stated matter of civil disobedience, so the unconstitutionality can be directly and openly challenged by an ideal plaintiff. That's the only way that this sort of thing won't get shuffled along and not create precedent. You can see it happened with the decision not to charge the CCL holder on the Blue Line incident above, because the state knows that if it went to court, they would lose just like the lost just about every other firearms restriction case that they've had brought against them.
  6. Follow-up: Both the alleged attacker and the gun owner were taken into police custody, but the owner was released without criminal charges. The alleged attacker remained in custody pending charges Wednesday afternoon, said police spokesman Anthony Spicuzza. https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-concealed-carry-owner-blue-line-20191205-zsmbhryvwndsdbxmjm5hae4hy4-story.html Hmm, I missed this one. I wonder why no charges were pressed by the CPD, even though . . . ". . . state law prohibits CCL holders from bringing concealed firearms on public trains and buses, or any public facility “under the control” of transit agencies." Could it be that they were instructed not to, because this would be a perfect case to illustrate that firearms carry and use by law-abiding citizens are not only necessary because of the crimes that abound on the C TA, but also that the only reason this prohibition exists is to restrict CCL owners from traveling on public transportation and make them less inclined to carry? My attorney has instructed me to INSIST upon charges being pressed on me, and to file a 14th Amendment civil rights lawsuit for failing to be given equal treatment under the law if they don't, so that I can press a 2nd Amendment violation case and get this prohibition destroyed in the courts.
  7. That's interesting and it means that my county is probably a sanctuary. Is there a master list somewhere which shows exactly which counties are 2A sanctuaries? Kevin, keeper of the IC maphttp://illinoiscarry.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=68707&page=20&do=findComment&comment=1228326 or different map here https://gunrightswatch.com/news/2019/06/11/illinois/bureau-county-il-passes-2a-resolution-crawford-county-won-t-prosecute/ Hmmm, they both show Piatt already passed??? Looks like they passed one in 2012 so this new report must be a 2020 version. http://illinoiscarry.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=68707&view=findpost&p=1207857 All of those maps seem to only go up to about August of last year. Is there a regularly updated map, as well as a list of the counties and other municipalities, anywhere? If not, maybe a sticky should be put up with that in it, in the original posting, for quick and complete reference.
  8. I thought about that, but I don't think our fight is to provide firearms at no expense anymore than we would fight to provide cars, phones, etc at no expense. Besides, money is fungible. Actually, since the right to keep and bear arms is just that, a right, and cars, phones, et cetera, are things that are material privileges, I am ALL for poor and disadvantaged people receiving subsidies to be able to obtain the means to defend themselves. I'd rather my taxes go to that than a lot of other things—pretty much to that than just about ANYTHING.
  9. I don't know if I agree with that, because sometimes the thing that the MOST needy people require MOST is the ability to defend themselves against predatory criminals, and survival due to self-defense is a need that supersedes even eating, in the immediate scope.
  10. That's something that should be a given, and I'd happily put pressure on my anti-firearm state reps to shame them with the "don't you respect the sacrifice" card.
  11. Received my license in the mail today, 95 days after submission. I had my service dog sitting watch at the top of the stairs all day; he's trained to bark whenever deliveries come to the building, people walk by, or anything occurs around the property. He's enough of an idiot savant to know when I set him at the top of the stairs, it's important so he sticks to the spot and keeps watch like a soldier. The second the mail person rolled up in front of the house, it was like the Hounds of H ell with him thundering down the stairs to announce the arrival. He got half the steak I was eating, medium-rare 45-day aged ribeye. He's a good dog.
  12. Renewed CCL on 11/9/2019, with fingerprints submitted with my original application. Expired 1/16/2020 Under Review 11/11/2019 Didn't even go to QC verified or approved and I checked every since my last post about this on 2/4/2020 Went straight to Active on 2/7/2020 Licence in hand 2/12/2020 95 total days
  13. So, that's going to hold true for voting, going to church, assembling, and speaking freely, as well, right?
  14. Renewed CCL on 11/9/2019, with fingerprints submitted with my original application. Expired 1/16/2020 Under Review 11/11/2019 Didn't even go to QC verified or approved and I checked every since my last post about this on 2/4/2020 Went straight to ACTIVE today, 2/7/2020 90 days exactly Imagine that. Although my expiration date is 1/16/2025, so they just added five years from my original expiration date. Aren't they supposed to put the new expiration date as five years from the ACTIVE date? Oh, wait, they sh!tweaseled and changed the law to prevent people from getting any free time on their licenses. That's right.
  15. Yep, I am doing that starting last month. I make about $20,000-$30,000 worth of purchases on Amazon for my home and business every year, according to my credit card company, so that's about $100-$150 per year going to the SAF.
  16. Figuratively, the ISP has been taken out to the woods, made to duckwalk without pants, while the plaintiff walked behind them wearing wingtip shoes and imitating an NFL kicker booting a 65-yard field goal. That would be the objective, scientific description of how to characterize this win.
  17. Nigh on 87 days and and still "Under Review" and "Submitted" in the "Inspect Element" trick. By the end of this week, they will be in violation of the statute to renew my CCL.
  18. Sixty days, and still "Under Review" and "Submitted" in the "Inspect Element" trick. Expires on 1/16/2020.
  19. Seven thousand, three hundred, twenty-six. No, it's true, you actually can carry that many loaded handguns in Illinois with your CCL, if you had the capability. Where's my portable hole? Bag of holding?
  20. It seems based on our very anecdotal evidence that calling is a must. It seems that if you call, or have your rep call, you get moved to the top of the pile. That shouldn't be how the world works, but I guess it is. Squeaky wheel gets the oil. So, is that consistent for CCW renewals as well?
