  1. It can be done but IIRC, you will need to obtain a type 7 FFL license. Read through this whole thread to see how another member was approved... https://illinoiscarry.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=76635&page=1
  2. IMHO, an $5-800 safe is much better than no safe at all. And having it bolted to the floor is a big plus. No safe is theft proof, even a $5000 safe. Your average thief will not be able to open an average safe. But someone who knows what they are doing will be able to get into a $500 or a $5000 safe. Having a safe somewhat tucked away where it is not freely visible and not advertising what or how much you have is your best bet.
  3. Yes, you can store firearms other than at your residence. That's actually the workaround for those behind enemy lines where so called "assault weapons" can't be possessed. You can legally own, just not possess "assault weapons" in certain cities or counties so it just needs to be stored outside the prohibited area. You can even store any of your firearms out of state as well if you choose. But do either of your parents have a FOID? That would be the only sticking point I could see if they don't. However that also seems to be a gray area after a recent case. But if you kept the gun(s) in a safe at your parents house and only you could open the safe so they had no access, that would probably work.
  4. FWIW, a virgin lower, one that has never had an upper attached, even if the lower is complete with a stock on it, can be first made into a pistol as long as you remove the stock before putting the pistol upper on it. Once it has been fully assembled as a pistol, you can switch back and forth between pistol and rifle whenever you feel like. Just make sure to never reassemble it as a pistol configuration and then put the stock back on as you now have an sbr. If no ATF tax stamp, it is a federal violation. This whole thing makes absolutely no sense but it is what it is. Like mentioned above, once a rifle, always a rifle. But if you like options, always complete your buld with a pistol upper and no stock. Although the reality is, how could anyone prove you never completed your build as a pistol? As long as you have a pistol length upper around, you can prove your case.
  5. No, you don't have to physically change your driver's license just yet if you updated it online. Eventually you will but you can do it at your leisure. And right now SOS facilities are a madhouse anyway. I did exactly what you did and it was fine for the ISP. When things die down a bit at SOS places, I will go and update my physical license.
  6. You can verify the email against your phone if you have Android. Go to settings, Google, and them Manage Your Google Account. The first choice will be Critical Security Issues. Click on the Take Action button to see the same compromised password information.
  7. Interesting. Kind of kills the narrative (no pun intended) https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/03/photo-collage-reveals-commits-mass-shootings-us-today/
  8. Sometimes the medicine is worse than the condition. I have been prescribed 3 different medicines when dealing with bouts of insomnia in the past. I don't recall right now which 3 they were but the after affects the next day were terrible. Hard to get out of bed and left me feeling groggy for a good chunk of the day. When I experienced my insomnia it was over the course of several months but I was able to finally get back to regular sleep. I don't credit the medication for helping as after taking each one for a couple days, I couldn't handle the way I felt the next day and just stopped taking them.
  9. It's crazy. There is no reason, absolutely no reason for an amendment to be that large. There is no way that any of the Representatives or Senators were aware of every provision before they cast their deciding vote. It should be broken down into many much smaller bills so they can be thoroughly understood and easier to comprehend. All you have to do to see this is look at all the statutes that are being affected by just this one amendment. The biggest problem with this stuff is that ignorance of laws isn't a defense. There is no way humanly possible to go through a day without violating at least 1 or 2 laws and probably not be aware that you have done so. This completely defeats the purpose of having laws in the first place. How many laws have been passed that either are already covered by other laws on the books just so a "lawmaker" can take credit or even contradict other laws? Sorry, rant off...
  10. Not sure of the point for HB0153 for Retired Law Enfotcement. I can see the benefits for Vets but for Law Enforcement, there is a better program in place already. It is the IROCC program and has much better privileges such as 50 state carry and includes US territories as well. The only kind of negative I see is that you have to qualify every year which actually isn't so bad. It ends up a similar overall costing about the same as the regular CC as it is a $75 a year to qualify on one platform such as semi auto and $100 if you want to qualify on both semi and revolver.
  11. FWIW, since your message prompted me to look, here's the only reference to school officers that I found in bill. I think he means this one: https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/billstatus.asp?DocNum=0029&GAID=16&GA=102&DocTypeID=HB&LegID=127840&SessionID=110 Synopsis As Introduced Amends the School Code. Provides that law enforcement officers shall not maintain a presence on school grounds unless there exists an imminent threat of danger to students at the school in question or there is reason to believe that urgent and immediate action is necessary to prevent such danger to students. Makes conforming changes. Defines "school grounds". Effective immediately.
  12. If Pritzker does sign this, you would be a fool to consider a career as a police officer in Illinois now. What you will see is any officer that can will be retiring. If you have less than 10 years, you are not vested in pension and would just get a refund of everything you contributed. And this would be the time to resign and find a department out of state if you still want a law enforcement career. You will probably also see many that aren't quite eligible to retire do it anyway to protect themselves and family. There is plenty hidden in this that will destroy law enforcement and create a society that is less safe instead of what these POS's are insisting. Pray for Illinois... The increase in crime that happened over the last year will pale compared to what will happen if this becomes law.
  13. Ah, ok. I missed that post. Thank you for sharing it with me.
  14. They used to be on the list. I had ordered ammo several times from them in the past and commented on this thread. They were added on the list after that but then disappeared for some reason.
