  1. The NRA has put together a rating sheet on various Illinois candidates: https://www.nrapvf.org/grades/Illinois/ I note that it is not complete, but it may be useful as a starting point. -Keith.
  2. Just a guess, I suspect that the SAF realized that they lack legal standing, so they removed themselves as a plaintiff to avoid (any further) delays… -Keith.
  3. Metal detectors operate by magnetic field induction to identify metals that respond to the magnetic field. The titanium screws holding my left shoulder together are non-magnetic, so they don’t trip the detector. Some stainless steels are non-magnetic, so likewise they won’t trip the detector. -Keith.
  4. Earlier this year my wire had the catalytic converter stolen from her Toyota Prius while she was parked in a bank parking lot. The replacement catalytic converter cost was $3,500. Fortunately our vehicle comprehensive insurance covered all but $100. We now have an aftermarket armor plate that covers the catalytic converter. -Keith.
  5. Man Convicted of Providing False Firearms Training On January 26, 2022 the Bureau County State’s Attorney charged George J. Parsons, 71-year-old male of Spring Valley, IL with Providing False Firearms Training (Class A Misdemeanor). The investigation into Parsons showed that he had provided insufficient or fraudulent training to over 800 students and was sentenced to a total of $1000.00 in fines and fees. On May 12, 2021 a complaint was filed. On Jan. 26, 2022 Parson pled guilty to the charge of Providing False Firearm Training. On Jan. 28, 2022 Parson paid the $1000.00 in fines and fees. The Firearms Services Bureau Investigative Support Unit and the Division of Criminal Investigations worked together to obtain the guilty conviction. Per the Firearm Concealed Carry Act 430 ILCS 66/70; a certified firearms instructor who knowingly provides or offers to provide a false certification that an applicant has completed firearms training as required under this Act is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. A person guilty of a violation of this subsection (i) is not eligible for court supervision. The Illinois State Police shall permanently revoke the firearms instructor certification of a person convicted under this subsection (i). If you see something, say something. If you are worried that you have been subjected to insufficient or fraudulent training, don't hesitate to call. Great work by all the investigators! 👏 #ISP
