  1. The biggest problem I have is with red flag laws. If someone is deemed "so dangerous" to themselves or others by a court that their constitutional rights are taken away, they need to be locked up and removed from society. Similarly, I think felons should have their rights restored upon release. If they are too dangerous to be in society with all their rights, why do we even let them out? Why did we ever get rid of asylums? Who's idea was it to let the mentally Ill, homeless, and people too dangerous to hold a spoon to just be out and about only to ever to be delt with by overworked cops and emts?
  2. What form are you guys talking about? I have never been asked to fill out a form state specific form besides the federal 4473.
  3. I might drive to an FFL next weekend and pay to have them register my whole car as an unfinished frame or receiver. Make or model? Uh... Buick. I guess it's all fun and games until you get pulled over for speeding and they tell you to turn the gun off and step out of the gun.
  4. Also, every chunk of metal in Illinois is an unfinished frame or receiver.
  5. I've been looking into making a semi auto sten carbine for a long time. The kits are made from a full auto sten cut through both the receiver and barrel and all have serial numbers. You put in a new 16.5 inch barrel and purchase a different bolt that fires in semi from a closed bolt and are good to go. Sounds like I'm going to have to be in another state to even possess the kit now? What BS.
  6. At first I thought the name change was dumb, but the new one is starting to grow on me. No matter the reason, I think it works.
  7. This is really gonna affect the surplus firearms I have and love to shoot. US manufacturers aren't going to fix this because there isnt a huge market. Nobody is going to make 7.62x39 or 7.62x54r in bulk in the US at the price Russia did, its all going to be purchased from like Romania or other ex soviet countries but now at a huge premium. US manufacturers cant even get the US staples of 9mm or 5.56 back down to reasonable prepanic prices. I might just sell all my cool surplus firearms and buy a black powder artillery cannon. I need to look more into it. At least then I'll always be able to buy what I need to shoot it.
  8. The buyer, not the seller, provides the record to an FFL along with a fee of up to $25. As written, the FFL is supposed to keep the record, but there appears to be no penalty if the FFL destroys (or simply loses) it.Wait, the buyer really has the responsiblity to turn in documentation of the sale to an FFL? Is this a joke? So there is no change in how the seller handles things, but the buyer has to go out of their way within 10 days to pay an FFL in person to keep record of it? What if the buyer gets sick, car breaks down, has a medical emergency? Will the FFL even accept it after 10 days or do you just at that point get charged with a misdemeanor? What if the buyer just lies and says they bought it back in 1980, at what point and in what situation would law enforcement even check? What if the seller gave false information? What positive thing could this possibly hope to accomplish? I guess it's not as bad as I first thought but this is going to get really messy.. could that be what they want? Is this just a ploy to slap anyone found in possession of a gun that isnt "registered with an FFL" with a crime? I've bought several guns private sale over the years completely on the up and up, how exactly would I be able to prove that I don't deserve a misdemeanor under this law if I am ever questioned by police?
  9. So like it is now for a private sale, run the buyers foid through ISP site and then within 10 days mail or email an FFL a copy of the transfer and sellers foid information. What if they throw it into the trash because they arent accepting this? It says the seller doesnt need to retain a transfer record at that point?
  10. ISRA's reply makes sense to me. Strategically they may have been doing everything for the best. Still, any money donated to the ISRA might be better spent on a moving van to gtfooi asap. It is clear that Illinois is regressing quickly in so many ways easily beyond simply its gun laws. Like the ISRA says, there is only so much that can be done with the Democrats in power.
  11. Link? Anything that Todd V says is worth reading about.
  12. Not sure if this has been posted yet but mom at arms had an interesting article about how the ISRA supported the origional FOID act back in the late 60's.
  13. Because there is a better chance of pigs flying than that passing.
