  1. How are the civil lawsuits progressing against the ISPFB on their failure to abide by the law?
  2. My CCL is coming up for renewal in early 2022. How early should I start the process and when can I actually apply for the renewal? With the backlog going on I am a little worried about getting caught up in that drama and then having to carry extra paperwork to show that I have done what I am supposed to do and that the state has dropped the ball.
  3. As of today, 22 Feb 2021, HR 127 still has ZERO cosponsors. It is going no where and had no support. https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/127/cosponsors

  5. So who is about the best stocked these days? I was out an Marengo and it is ok, but a shell of its former glory. I've heard Gat Guns is really low on stock, I have not been there in a while. I am in the market for a revolver and was wondering before I just start randomly start looking if there was a good place to start that has decent stock.
  6. You may only edit for a period of time after the original posting. Then at a point, I am not sure when, editing is no longer available.
  7. Those people are very disheartened and are talking about betrayal tonight.
  8. Its on Facebook with his letter as to why. Didn't he lose reelection to Suzzane Ness? https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201104/democrat-ness-ousts-republican-incumbent-skillicorn-in-house-66th-district Not really a resignation if he lost. Seems more like he is being an attention hog
  9. Where did you hear that? I just do not see it being reported yet.
  10. And each of those same days, most other states don't bother checking these records daily, or at all unless someone wants to buy a gun. Most of those states have far less violent crime than the problem areas in Illinois. If we are to be serious about reducing violence we should be emulating states in our region that do better than us, not forging ahead with plans to "fix" a failed system that will remain a failure as long as it exists. I have said before that if someone can show me that the FOID system provide a measurable reduction in gun violence and crime I would support it. But I have NEVER seen anyone make any credible presentation that FOID does anything better than what other states without a FOID system are doing. It can be argued that those states without a FOID may even be doing better than Illinois. The FOID needs to go. It is not doing what it was claimed and designed to do. Some may say it was designed to be a money grab. But it seems to be costing more and more money without delivering on violence reduction or even a revenue source that accomplishes anything of merit.
  11. With all these long wait times, what is happening with first time buyers that may have also applied for their FOID at the time of purchase (if you can even do that)?
  12. That is not true. I know government workers that were laid off and some who were furloughed. Also some had 2020 pay increases deferred to a later, still TBD, date.
  13. I could live with the FOID system *IF* someone could actually provide data that it does anything to improve gun safety! Alas, I can find no such evidence. All it provides is a bureaucratic hurdle to overcome. There is nothing that the FOID does better than simply having instant background checks.
  14. I can tell you when the FAA busts an illegitimate flight examiner they make everyone who got their flight rating through them go through another evaluation. Not sure what will happen with this.
