  1. Perfectly legal. No gray area at all if at least one of your parents has a FOID card. I stored my handgun at my parents house and later at a friends house back when I lived in Chicago before the McDonald decision. Also, any "safe" you buy (residential security container) can actually be defeated in a few minutes with the right power tools. But certainly much better than nothing. One downside is if you store your firearms elsewhere, you won't have them available should the need arise for self defense.
  2. Things went to normal very quickly. Last weekend, most people in stores had masks. This weekend, very few did. Thank goodness!
  3. That's terrible. So they have enough free time to bother to actively go after lawful CCW holders? What, there's no theft at that mall? How about going after actual crime?
  4. Great news. If they can force NY to "shall issue", it would be a huge step in the right direction. Expecting 50 state Constitutional Carry is unrealistic, but any movement toward 2nd amendment rights will be great.
  5. done. I see the antis are doing a call to action also. Lots of "proponents" as well as "opponents"
  6. The dems want this every time. I guess it's time to call them, email them, etc... Let them know that a vote for this will hurt their reelection...
  7. Anti-gun activist as head of ATF. Another stunning Biden pick.
  8. Both .380 and 9mm are good choices. I have firearms in both. Get your wife out to the range with various rental guns to find out what is the right gun for her. There is no one-size-fits-all answer.
  9. You're fine on private property with the property owners permission. See bold below: 720 ILCS 5/24-1.6 Aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. (a) A person commits the offense of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon when he or she knowingly: (1) Carries on or about his or her person or in any vehicle or concealed on or about his or her person except when on his or her land or in his or her abode, legal dwelling, or fixed place of business, or on the land or in the legal dwelling of another person as an invitee with that person's permission, any pistol, revolver, stun gun or taser or other firearm; or
  10. No, you don't have to be an Illinois resident. If you ever must step foot in Illinois (or if you have friends or family still in Illinois), you still have a vested interest. You do not have to be an Illinois resident to fill out the "witness slips" or other call to action items. I'm moving out of Illinois later this year, but plan to still be active on Illinois Carry and in our action items.
  11. Her answer to both questions is "Yes, of course". Obviously her only goal is to make firearm ownership too expensive for the "masses". Only the elites can pay all the fees she has planned, and she can continue to chip away at gun ownership.
  12. https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/fulltext.asp?DocName=072000050K7-1#:~:text=Sec.,imminent%20use%20of%20unlawful%20force. This is the best answer you can get. If your situation qualifies with 38:7-1(a), then you are justified. Every nuanced situation is different, and there are a lot of "shades of gray" on any individual situation, and different people may see the same situation in a different light. Only you can decide if you "believe that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm" and it is a tough decision. Guess wrong in one direction = death. Guess wrong in the other direction = prison. I'm glad it ended up ok for you (since you're posting here).
  13. I bought my Maglula on Amazon. Oh oh... But if it's a counterfeit, it's a good one. No problems with it... I wonder how to tell?

    Ammo prices

    This is temporary. It's happened before and will get better eventually. For those sitting on a large stockpile, it's a great chance to make some quick $$. For me, I'll just "shoot down" my stockpile and wait until prices go more toward normal. For instance, I doubt we'll ever see $.03 / rd for 22LR again, but I am positive it will go well below $.10 again. (My prediction is within 2 years, we'll see $.05 - $.06 for bulk cheap range ammo.)
  15. I'm a fan of "High Noon Holsters" for reasonably priced leather holsters that hold up and fit very well.
  16. If they didn't have the legal ISP mandated signs, it would just be a choice of "being unprotected at work" or "risk being fired if they found out". But since they have the sign, there is no way you can legally carry. While you may break the law and never get caught, it's not usually a good idea. Your choices: 1. Break the law. Certainly get fired if caught, and possibly get arrested (depending on if the company decides to just fire you or to call the police.) 2. Leave firearm at home or in your car. Be unprotected while at work. But keep your job, and stay "law abiding". 3. Find a different employment opportunity where they do not prohibit carry. Personally, I pick #2. While it's bothersome, the alternatives IMO are worse. But only you can decide for yourself.
  17. It was probably gang-on-gang. Unlikely a legal CCW holder who shot thug #1...
  18. I think that "authoritarian politicians" are a much more severe health issue than "guns". Let's ban authoritarians...
  19. They use "buyback" because "forced confiscation of legally-obtained personal property" sounds bad. (Of course, it is bad and very anti-American, but that's never stopped Dems before...)
  20. But they will destroy your life. A felony conviction would be the end of life for any "normal" person. Of course for a thug, it's no big deal. But for someone who values freedom and works a good job, it's the end of having any real life. So while people may fail to comply for a while, little by little the authoritarians in charge will destroy lives of normal people every day until they achieve their goals of fully marginalizing those who believe in the 2nd amendment. Non-compliance is not really an option. The only real option is to make sure this horrific idea does not pass
  21. This is what happens when authoritarian Democrats win. They hate freedom...
  22. This is what happens when a leftist wins. He has 4 years to destroy this nation. Biden will do everything he can to make it so expensive that no-one can afford to defend themselves.
