  1. Well, this link from another thread says no. The article, from the Madison-St. Clair Record and dated 6/8/2016, gives the reason for Judge Gilbert's recusals. "U.S. District Judge Phil Gilbert will no longer preside over cases involving state government due to his position as trustee at Southern Illinois University." https://madisonrecord.com/stories/510793356-gilbert-reassigned-from-133-cases-due-to-position-as-siu-trustee
  2. The judge listed at the docket link above is John Phil Gilbert. Judge Gilbert was appointed by President G.H.W. Bush in 1992. He has served in senior status since 2014.
  3. Judge Miller is in Jasper County. I wonder how that happened? https://fourthcircuitil.com/the-court-system/circuit-court-judges-associate-judges/
  4. "Unhelpful in this regard" apparently means that SCOTUS has ruled that pesky Constitution means what it says....not what some gun-grabber wants it to say.
  5. Retiree here. Mailing a check for another 100 (to make a total of 200) on 02/01.
  6. "En banc". The whole panel of judges on the 5th Circuit. And which SCOTUS justice oversees the 5th Circuit? Alito. Which justice oversees the 7th? Barrett. I'm just sayin'.
  7. Well, she's leaving office in a blaze of glory. And giving us an even better look into the totalitarian mindset to boot.
  8. I have yet to see anything that causes me to regret canceling my ISRA membership. Someone tell me again please how the bill they were "neutral" on helps the law abiding gun owner?
  9. 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?
  10. So, they are going to outlaw knives....rocks....2X4s....fists....feet....rouge automobiles....etc? Meaningful means effective, right?
  11. There was also something buried in there about charging the FOID applicant for the cost of a background check. No dollar figure and I did not see any guarantee of meeting the legislated timeline. I think you might be referring to page 42, lines 18-22. These seem to refer to paying for checking the optional fingerprints (lines 5-17) against ISP and FBI criminal history databases. However...the proposed review board mentioned by Molly in post # 130 would be able to vote to require an applicant to provide electronic fingerprints (page 58, line 23 and on). Obviously, the applicant seeking review would be required to pay for the electronic fingerprints. And surely the cost of having them checked against databases as well.
  12. Hoffman is from Madison County, which voted over 2 to 1 to become a 2A sanctuary county. I don't think the folks in his district will smile on the idea of paying more to exercise their gun rights. As an edit: I will confess I don't know what percentage of his district is in Madison County. I will say the gun culture down here is strong, and that's not restricted to Madison County alone.
  13. "Imposes a 1% surcharge on firearm ammunition, which shall be deposited into the Trauma Response Fund. Effective immediately." What would keep these funds from being "swept" if so decreed by the powers that be? How about they put a surcharge on Marijuana sales instead?
  14. Confusing and or a little murky. Good advice about the FOID. My wife doesn't shoot (yet). But she has a FOID, just so she could legally "posess" firearms should something happen to me.
