  1. I think ya'll are reading too much into this. If you make the bolt swap - and dispose of the bolt that would make it a semi-automatic - you no longer have a semi automatic "assault weapon". A pistol grip, handguard, threaded barrel, flash hider, collapsible buttstock, etc etc would not make the weapon a semi automatic firearm - only the bolt, which you replaced would.


    The bolt is not an "attachment", it's an integral part of the firearm, cannot be operated without one, and in this case it is a single shot, and no longer semi automatic.


    Having said that I'm not a lawyer, I have no dog in this fight, and no longer live in Illinois, but if I did, I'd take this information to your own attorney that would be defending you in court and ask them for their instruction. Any opinion on this board in just that - an opinion. Either way best of luck getting this law overturned / thrownout.

  2. Liberal run states will continue to pass unconstitutional laws that they KNOW are unconstitutional because it will take YEARS for them to be corrected, and in the meantime everyone in the state has to play by their rules - which are unconstitutional. There is no repercussions for the states to continue doing exactly what they're doing now. In blue states I'd expect this to get worse before it gets better.


    I think it's safe to say most on this forum didn't vote for the politicians passing this legislation, but the majority in your state did, so .....

  3. I'm not a lawyer - but since the building is privately owned, I would think the owner could allow firearms on premises just as anyone would in their home to visitors.


    If that isn't possible, the owner could designate the building something other than a school - since no children are present for school - (warehouse, church, etc) on those days services are held. School desks in a building does not make it a school any more than school desks in my house make my house a school.

  4. Consider - 

    It's a felony to have an assembled SBR without the approval ($200) from the ATF to have one.

    The ATF has an "amnesty" period you can register your AR pistol as an SBR by sending them a photo of your firearm (as well as other information)

    Let's say the 120 day amnesty period expires and you do not have "approval" from the ATF for your AR pistol.

    You now have provided proof - picture,  serial #, etc - to the ATF that you posses a fully assembled SBR yet you have no authorization to possess it. 

    As the law is written, you're a felon.

    Does anyone trust the ATF will not come after those that have provided proof they are in possession of an unauthorized SBR? 

  5. I'm still wondering if you guys who didn't cancel the cards have a nasty background check surprise waiting for you upon expiration of your old cards. Maybe some of you moved to real free states and it really doesn't matter. My new sheriff is the type that would use Illinois' report as reason to deny/revoke a local CCL.

    TRJ - you're over thinking this -

    You can't revoke an existing CCL in a state you're a resident in because my FOID card expires in IL. of which I am no longer a resident.


    Further, there is no requirement for a former resident of the state of IL to cancel, or surrender a FOID. As a current non-resident, making the proper identification of my new residence, the card is no longer valid as soon as you are no longer a resident.


    Illinois ability to control your life with firearms expires when you wave bye-bye and cross state lines with all your worldly belongings never to return.

    IL can tax and harass whomever they like, it will not be those of us that have left the state.
