  1. To claim residency in Illinois you must have an Illinois driver's license or state ID. To do so you would have to surrender you New York license. New York would be notified eventually and New York would no longer recognize you as a resident of that state. The Illinois State Policy gets its information from the Illinois Secretary of State. (b) A person applying for a Firearm Owner's Identification Card shall consent to the Department of State Police using the applicant's digital driver's license or Illinois Identification Card photograph, if available, and signature on the applicant's Firearm Owner's Identification Card. The Secretary of State shall allow the Department of State Police access to the photograph and signature for the purpose of identifying the applicant and issuing to the applicant a Firearm Owner's Identification Card. (c) The Secretary of State shall conduct a study to determine the cost and feasibility of creating a method of adding an identifiable code, background, or other means on the driver's license or Illinois Identification Card to show that an individual is not disqualified from owning or possessing a firearm under State or federal law. The Secretary shall report the findings of this study 12 months after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly.
  2. The law is not clear. There are probably several areas in the state in which people have a mailing address that varies from their mailing address. "(a-15) If an applicant applying for a Firearm Owner's Identification Card moves from the residence address named in the application, he or she shall immediately notify in a form and manner prescribed by the Department of State Police of that change of address." " (a) A Firearm Owner's Identification Card, issued by the Department of State Police at such places as the Director of the Department shall specify, shall contain the applicant's name, residence, date of birth, sex, physical description, recent photograph, except as provided in subsection (c-5), and signature." " (430 ILCS 65/13.2) (from Ch. 38, par. 83-13.2) Sec. 13.2. The Department of State Police shall, 60 days prior to the expiration of a Firearm Owner's Identification Card, forward by first class mail to each person whose card is to expire a notification of the expiration of the card and an application which may be used to apply for renewal of the card. It is the obligation of the holder of a Firearm Owner's Identification Card to notify the Department of State Police of any address change since the issuance of the Firearm Owner's Identification Card. Whenever any person moves from the residence address named on his or her card, the person shall within 21 calendar days thereafter notify in a form and manner prescribed by the Department of his or her old and new residence addresses and the card number held by him or her. Any person whose legal name has changed from the name on the card that he or she has been previously issued must apply for a corrected card within 30 calendar days after the change. The cost for a corrected card shall be $5 which shall be deposited into the State Police Firearm Services Fund." It seems that the ISP should have both the residential and mailing address on record, when applicable. Should the FOID contain the residential or mailing address?
  3. For the sake of others, it is good to hear that the ISP seems to be doing better in processing. A month from now, my wife and I will be mailing CCL and FOIDs to them from another state.
  4. This is from Sec. 65 Prohibited Area “ (3) Any building, parking area, or portion of a building under the control of an officer of the executive or legislative branch of government, provided that nothing in this paragraph shall prohibit a licensee from carrying a concealed firearm onto the real property, bikeway, or trail in a park regulated by the Department of Natural Resources or any other designated public hunting area or building where firearm possession is permitted as established by the Department of Natural Resources under Section 1.8 of the Wildlife Code.” https://www.ispfsb.com/Public/AboutTheAct.aspx 5) On what IDNR properties may an Illinois Concealed Carry Permit holder carry a concealed firearm? Illinois Concealed Carry Permit holders may carry a concealed firearm on any IDNR real property (including bike trails, trails, or any other designated public hunting area or building where firearm possession is permitted by the IDNR) with the following exceptions: All IDNR Office buildings, including but not limited to the Joel D. Brunsvold Building (IDNR Springfield Headquarters Building), IDNR Regional Office buildings, IDNR State Museum buildings, and any other IDNR building marked with the ISP-approved sign prohibiting firearms. All firearms, including concealed firearms, are also prohibited on all IDNR State Refuge areas, IDNR Dedicated Nature Preserves, and IDNR children playground areas. When visiting any of these locations, Concealed Carry Permit holders are required to secure their concealed firearms in their vehicle in accordance with the Illinois Concealed Carry Act. https://www2.illinois.gov/dnr/LawEnforcement/Documents/ConcealedCarryQnA.pdf Note that they are specific in delineating State Refuge Areas and Nature Preserve as different areas. That would indicate that Natural Areas are different from those two. Other than staying out of buildings in a Natural Area, it does not appear that CC would be a violation.
  5. The thread is about a proposed Illinois law. Where in Illinois can one legally drive 100mph, except on a race course or drag strip?
  6. This has nothing to do with the Texas law. Sandy Hook parents sued Bushmaster in 2014 or so.
  7. Your questions are valid.. The father even "coincidently" arrived home just after it happened and called 911. The incident happened on August 11. That would seem to have been enough time to do a thorough investigation. I assume that there was gun powder residue on the child, but not on the man. The child's prints may have been on the gun. The article is very limited. Perhaps the Zoom session was recorded and gave more evidence. Maybe a neighbor heard the shot just prior to the man arriving home. For our part it is just conjecturing.
  8. I think that the no firearms in class policy is a matter of safety. You have to figure in the dumby factor. Even if the pre-class instructions would state "Unloaded Only", someone would bring in a loaded gun. Then you have those people who automatically place their finger on the trigger when they pick up a gun. Ironically the only place available for a classroom session in some areas may be a posted venue. Some, supposedly, experienced shooters are just clutsy. At the renewal class I attended, 2 shooters were bitten by the slide on their pistols. I think it i normal to be a bit paranoic when you are first licensed. Five to six years ago we had a lot of posts debating minutia - printing, cops (especially Chicago) can't wait to arrest us for the slightist infraction, knowingly, etc. For the most part most of our apprehensions have proven to be over done.
  9. The powers that be are aware of this and it is being addressed, according to another thread. Forum Themes - Site Support - IllinoisCarry.com You can simply refresh the page, and not have to open a new tab.
  10. Are you saying that residents should be able to buy directly from the state or that they should be able to get loans from the state? What about banks who are dealing gun businesses, should the banks not be able to get that business?
  11. Thanks for the updates. Handgunlaw.us is a great site. I recommend it often when I answer a question here or on other sites.
  12. I have had a small problem with this after trying tne non-default themes. Sometimes when I click on a post, I get a This page is not working right now message. Simply refreshing the page brings up brings up the desired page. It has occurred on both the light and dark themes. This could be a cause of frustration for some people.
  13. The bank should start dealing with gun manufacturers. This is from the cited article. Maybe JPM should stop dealing with the auto companies. I am sure many of their employees and families have been killed, injured, or affected by auto accidents. Bank of America also announced in 2018 it would stop making new loans to companies that make military-style rifles for civilian use. Its policy came after dozens of employees lost family members or suffered other trauma related to mass shootings in the past few years.
  14. You can also go to the top right corner to toggle between dark and light mode with the light bulb icon. The slider icon next to it gives the option to change the background.
