  1. SurePost is part of UPS. UPS SurePost Rates | UPS - United States
  2. So far, no one here has confirmed that UPS has stopped service for Brownells.
  3. I am a bit skeptical. The Brownell's site still lists USP as its shipper. Basic Shipping Questions | Top Rated Supplier of Firearm Reloading Equipment, Supplies, and Tools - Colt (brownells.com) The letter shown above has no addressee. It is not whited out like the name on the bottom sentence. There is no signature or contact information, which I would expect to see on something of such legal importance. As noted above, they have not legal authority to confiscate and destroy. The proper course would be to notify proper authorities of suspected contraband, or not accept it to begin with. UPS legal would certainly know this. Major changes of policy are usually made after notifying customers. I would think that an official letter would also cite the actual law or regulation and not just use the common name, "ghost gun". Had the regulation been put into effect when this letter was supposedly sent out? “A year ago this week standing here with many of you, I instructed the attorney general to write a regulation that would rein in the proliferation of ghost guns because I was having trouble getting anything passed in the Congress,” Biden said. The rule goes into effect 120 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register." https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/biden-issues-new-federal-rule-aimed-at-privately-made-ghost-guns-without-serial-numbers The article is from April 11, 2022
  4. I think that you should have worded it differently. Some will just read your first sentence and make the wrong assumption. Liquor stores are not automatically required to post. They may if they wish to do so. Liquor stores do not generally serve alcohol. There may be some exceptions e.g., a tasting event. Only establishments that serve alcohol and meet the greater than 50% gross receipts must post. (9) Any building, real property, and parking area under the control of an establishment that serves alcohol on its premises, if more than 50% of the establishment's gross receipts within the prior 3 months is from the sale of alcohol. The owner of an establishment who knowingly fails to prohibit concealed firearms on its premises as provided in this paragraph or who knowingly makes a false statement or record to avoid the prohibition on concealed firearms under this paragraph is subject to the penalty under subsection (c-5) of Section 10-1 of the Liquor Control Act of 1934.
  5. If you are using a real estate agent, ask them about the safes. I do not see a problem. A lot of people have safes and keep other things besides guns in them. It is no one's what you have in your safes. We had a small upright safe, and it was no problem. The guns should be just as secure during a showing as when you go shopping for the day, or even a vacation. You are an Illinois resident until you establish residency in Wisconsin e.g. driver's license, register to vote, car registration. Follow the rules for transporting your guns across state lines - unloaded, container, ammo separate, etc. They have no FOID, so possessing ammo there is no problem. If you have a CCL, the situation may be a little gray. I think the Wisconsin will recognize your Illinois CCL until you establish residency there. Then you will have to apply for Wisconsin permit. See the link below for information on Wisconsin rules. When I moved to Indiana, I did not carry for the few weeks until my Indiana permit cleared. Make your own informed decision. Again, no Wisconsin FOID, guns are find in your house. Handgunlaw.us
  6. Right, and do not expect some merchant to provide a means. Only a fool would allow a stranger to put a memory device into the business' machine.
  7. I think most of us would like to see Constitutional carry in all states, but one has to deal with what is in place today.
  8. I think that you have it backward. The CCL serves as a FOID, but one can have a FOID and not have a CCL. As you and many of us point out, no one knows how merchants will deal with the ecards. It looks like many of you are having problems with hard cards with no expiration date.
  9. I think that if your hard card is lost or stolen, it should still be reported. Someone could pose as you and use the card to purchase a gun. That would make it traceable to you, if it were used in a crime. I do not think the validity of a CCL is affected by loss of a physical FOID. It is not the same as the FOID right being suspended or revoked.
  10. The article places a great emphasis on freedom from fear. Based on his logic the media should be limited on what they report. Much of people's fears are based on information and opinions in the media. Maybe if people like him did not keep pushing the issue there would be less fear. He is lawyer. How many people are living in fear because some lawyer helped to keep a violent person out of jail? I am not arguing against freedom of speech or due process. I am just pointing out the fallacy of his points. The idea of a free State could also be seen as protecting the country from a foreign takeover. The State remains free and independent.
  11. I do not remember the ISP advising to leave your cards at home and to carry copies. That was advice given by some here and debated repeatedly here. The problem is with the merchants who will not accept officially designated documents (FOID or CCL).
  12. I have never heard of anyone being stopped by police to see if they have a FOID card. It happens after some event occurs, shooting, search of vehicle after suspected crime, etc. No one with any computer savvy is going to put a stranger's flash or USB drive into their computer. You would have to have it on your phone, tablet or similar device. I expect that a lot of stores and dealers will be skeptical of an e-FOID.
  13. Oh no, it is a trap. In 6 months they will declare it was a mistake. The CCLs will be declared invalid. They will kick down our doors, take our guns, eat our porridge, break our chairs, and sleep in our beds.
  14. What if an Uvalde teacher had won a pistol in a raffle a few months ago, took training, and had it at school? There are too many variables to argue any side strongly, but who knows.
  15. When I first glanced at the title, I wondered what the outrage was this time.
