  1. I think if there's money to be made, online sellers may well check FOIDs electronically. If there is a viable system for doing so, of course. By phone? How's the phone thing working out currently?
  2. "People interviewed on Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive wanted me to know that they are very concerned about racism and police brutality." In other words, they want to continue to virtue signal. They just don't want to be the ones robbed/shot/mugged while doing it.
  3. "When I joined the Marine Corps, I was still a Jamaican. But this country had done so much for me, I was willing, willing, to die for this country," Sears said during her victory speech early Wednesday morning.
  4. Does "equity" mean we all get a mansion to remove the toilets from?
  5. Which is why they (childishly) named the bill after the TX law? This bill is a pro-abortion hissy fit disguised as gun control.
  6. How about when they arrest them, they prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law?
  7. The "two" caucus with the Democrats. And I think Manchin and Sinema would both vote with the Republicans on this. And very likely Testor from Montana.
  8. Even though it's a 50-50 Senate, and Democrats hold the tie-breaking vote....it's the Republicans fault the Chipman nomination is being withdrawn. So sayeth the president in the fourth paragraph of the linked to article. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/white-house-pulling-atf-nomination-david-chipman-second-amendment-guns Were I a Republican senator, I'd gladly take my share of the credit. But the president is being too generous.
  9. Back then, the guns didn't (apparently) shoot people by themselves.
  10. You make a very good point. The Biden Administration's outrage seems to be poorly directed as to changing Russian behavior. Ahem.
  11. I can tell you for a fact that he's got at least 30 bucks less.
  12. It isn't so much the process of transferring a firearm, but the fact that a record of the transfer must be submitted to an FFL who is required to keep it for 20 years. Part of the way they sold this registration scheme was to call it a background check on all sales, pretending that Illinois didn't already require that. So they lied. Wasn't there something in the bill that said the ISP would also keep records for a buyer in lieu of an FFL doing so? Or did that not make the final cut?
  13. And....there you have it. But the FOID check is only good until Jan 2024. Then the FFLs get all the business. I might be reading it wrong, but I believe after 01/01/24, the seller has the option of using the FFL or the ISP.
  14. Essentially nothing. Private sellers can, if they want, go to an FFL to check the buyers' FOIDs, or continue to use the web site, same as today. It just sounds good to JB's voters, now that he's announced he's running for re-election. And....there you have it.
  15. ".......Expanding Background Checks to All Gun Sales in Illinois" So....what's changed here?
  16. "...., but I’m not likely to get that done in the near term.” Or the long term either.
  17. Hear! Hear! Just scanned through it. And Todd...if you read this...thanks for putting yourself out there.
  18. .......“There’s over 100 lawsuits about issues around FOID, and with the backlog as it exists, maybe one of these lawsuits will be successful,” Hoffman said. “If we don’t fix it then some of these lawsuits would be ripe for success, and getting rid of the FOID system would be awful in my mind.” (Emphasis mine.) ... Illinois State Riffle Association President Richard Pearson confirmed the organization will not fight the bill. (Emphasis mine.) Read Rep. Hoffman's stated purpose, then consider the gun rights group's position. Mr. Hoffman thinks it would be terrible to get rid of a system that requires an American citizen to pay a fee to exercise a Constitutionally protected right, and the ISRA is neutral about that. They are sabotaging their own lawsuit. And one has to think not unintentionally.
