  1. Even better would be if the media stopped feeding the school shooters by giving them all the publicity & notoriety, and therefore encouraging the next group of school shooters. But at least if teachers had the option to be armed, the body count would go down. Greenwood was still a tragedy for the 3 innocent victims, but much less a tragedy because of the good guy with a gun.
  2. Wow. SCOTUS specifically ruled on a subject, and the 9th Circuit is ignoring their ruling on the exact same subject? It's been 11 years since that case started, but I guess the liberal judges can laugh that they can deny Young's rights for another year or two?
  3. I see that the dictator-in-chief has spit out a new possibly unconstitutional executive order: https://www.foxnews.com/us/gov-pritzker-overhauls-illinois-gun-rules-highland-park-massacre-critics-warn-2nd-amendment-breach Interested to see how ISP will redefine "clear and present danger" per this emergency rule change. I haven't seen the exact text of it though. Hopefully there is still stringent due process before denying someone their rights... I don't think anyone minds if the likes of Crimo are denied, but government usually has a tendency to over-reach and deny many times more rightful owners than those who should actually be...
  4. Also, FYI, in Indiana "no guns" signs have no force of law. So no matter how they posted it, they can't charge the CCW-holder with a crime. All they can do is ask him or her to leave (and then charge with trespass if the CCW-holder refuses to leave.)
  5. You can carry legally anywhere that is not on that list of 23 places in 430 ILCS65 (a) and places with specific signage per 430 ILCS 66 (a-10) It's certainly a bigger list than it should be, but anywhere not on that list is legal. Different from the recently passed New York law and the soon-to-be-passed California law, where virtually everywhere in the state is prohibited. In NY (now) & CA (soon), they've prohibited all public avenues, all private businesses, many sidewalks, parking lots w/o real vehicle exceptions, etc... They purposely have responded to Bruen by making sure it's impossible to actually carry. So Illinois "prohibited places" list is large, but there are certainly states with much worse.
  6. What a shock? An anti-gunner who has no experience with firearms but hates them just the same? Sounds qualified...
  7. To be realistic, your options are #1 or #2. Both cost money and quite a bit of time. It's certainly not "right", but it is the reality. The state has made sure that restoring your rights is a painful and frustrating process. Unless you've left something important out, you should be successful with #2, but it'll be neither free nor quick. You've done nothing disqualifying, as the offense was a Class B misdemeanor, and the act only provides for suspension of your license after a second violation.
  8. Bad news, NY already did that. New York's terrible and completely unconstitutional law: See 265.01-e 3 (d),(e),(g),(h),... They create a class of license holders to whom the ludicrous restrictions do not apply. I hope the courts slap NY down hard for this blatant disregard for SCOTUS decisions they don't like.
  9. Pretty much as predicted. The left-wingers running the state are proud that the licenses they must issue will be virtually worthless. They've banned carry in about every location possible (including virtually all private businesses), and also made it very hard to even legally leave your gun in your car. So virtually no-one will be actually able to legally carry.
  10. Yes, if it's "on base". There are a bunch of "Federally prohibited places". But most of them are places that only apply to a small portion of the population. Link to a list of them: https://www.usconcealedcarry.com/resources/federal-ccw-law/federally-banned-locations-for-carrying-firearms/
  11. Good for Texas. How come all the Dems vote in lockstep and are united in hatred of the 2nd amendment, while some Republicans ignore the party platform and decide to help push gun control? No liberal will vote for them anyway; so they just lose conservate votes for no reason...
  12. Well, that was terrible news. All the gun-hating Dems got enough RINOs to support another diminishment of gun rights of citizens. And of course commie Biden was thrilled to sign it.
  13. 🤬 And I see that 5 RINOs including Kinzinger voted for that absolute garbage. Of course along with every Democrap other than 2. The Dems are back to banning all normal sized magazines. It of course is a sliding scale, as we've seen in liberal states. They ban what they can for now, and then keep on decreasing the number over time.
  14. Par for the course. Democrats pass terrible laws. Democrats break these laws. They get ignored, because they control the security apparatus. They save "prosecuting" for those who dare oppose leftist authoritarians.
  15. It's not as simple as that. We need to be contacting legislators right now and fighting against this. If it passes, they will make felons of most lawful gun owners, and destroy our lives and our freedoms one at a time. If "not complying" equals going to prison, are you sure you want that? Please take a look at the NRA Action: https://act.nraila.org/campaign/40880/
  16. I hope Desantis runs for president. Everything I hear about him shows he'd make a great one.
  17. As mentioned above, you can legally store your firearm in your vehicle in almost all places in Illinois. The only two exceptions are: Federally prohibited places: The US Post Office is the most common one. Following the Bonidy appeal in 2015, the court reiterated that you cannot legally have your firearm in your car in a USPS parking lot Nuclear Power Plants parking lots
  18. They are coming, and coming hard for tactical rifles and normal-capacity magazines. Now is the time to email / call / write to every Rep and Senator and let them know the 2A community won't stand for it. Because they are going to try, and try very hard.
  19. She could not have. She was an actual conservative, and that makes it impossible to get elected in Illinois. The best that can be hoped for is a RINO / moderate Republican in a state-wide office. But anyone not as far left as Josef Stalin will still have a very hard time getting elected in Illinois. When was the last time there was any Republican in state-wide government in Illinois? Rauner was just a small island in the sea of Democrat control. The Democrats have absolute control, because Chicago controls the elections.
  20. Amen. Calling it an AD adds fuel to the anti-gun notion that firearms go off by themselves. Every time there is an "accidental" shooting, someone did something very stupid and unsafe. Every time (at least with a modern firearm). Someone pulled the trigger on a loaded firearm without having it pointed in a safe direction.
  21. You are correct. ND is the only Const. Carry state where Const. Carry is for residents only. As of 7/1/22, any person who is not prohibited by statute (e.g. felon, convicted domestic abuser) can carry in Indiana without any license. Same will be true on 6/13/22 for Ohio and 7/2/23 for Alabama. But it wasn't much of a hurdle anyway, since Indiana recognizes all firearm carry licenses from any state or country. I legally carried every time I visited Indiana long before Illinois issued licenses.
  22. +1 It's a great event and a fun time. Glad to see it's back after a 2-year COVID hiatus.
  23. Telling Meijer specifically why their sign is incorrect and sending them a link to the right sign would be a bad idea. But letting fellow gun owners know where our business is not desired is a service to gun owners. Meijer put the same sign up in all their stores across multiple states, and is likely too lazy to get Illinois-specific signs for Illinois. But it is our duty to call (1-877-363-4537) or email (https://help.meijer.com/s/contact) Meijer and let them know we don't appreciate their new "we hate the 2nd amendment" stance. I used to be a regular Meijer shopper, but not anymore after this.
  24. Most gun laws are. But there is only some appetite for overturning the most egregious ones. The courts continue to be timid on enforcing the 2nd amendment, giving it a "back seat" in how closely it is followed compared to the rest of the Bill of Rights.
