  1. There's an OR in there. broken down in a non-functioning state OR not immediately accessible OR unloaded and enclosed in a case. A chest rig pretty much looks like open-carry though. I think it would be awesome if a pouch-style holster (think like a Bianchi M12 holster, but not actually an M12 holster, just like it) that completely enclosed a sidearm counted as concealed carry (for loaded CCL, because you can't see the firearm, right?), but it probably doesn't, because it's obvious that there's a handgun in there.
  2. "FOID Carry" is carrying an unloaded weapon encased in pretty much anything. "6 seconds to safety" was the reference for how fast someone could unpack and load a firearm, if necessary. Also there's OC spray.
  3. Decision The original topic is locked. The 9th Federal Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned the previous ruling of its 3-judge panel that declared California's ban on magazines over 10 rounds unconstitutional. In other words, California's ban still stands.
  4. It's also illegal, although unlocked valet parking highlights the risks of valet parking, in general. It's like the valets are trying to make your car an easy target for theft. Does your car have a trunk? This story makes me ponder disconnecting my remote latch.
  5. I have not been in a similar situation, but the form comes with attached instructions which should answer your question.
  6. Generally transferring, including gifting, a firearm across state lines is governed by federal law and has to go through an FFL in the transferee's (i.e., your) home state. There are exceptions, but you may not like them. A transfer across state lines doesn't go through an FFL when it's transferred as part of an estate (i.e., your father dies and leaves the firearm to you), which is still federal law. You probably don't want to wait that long. For a transfer sort-of not across state lines ... ... which only works if you have an IL non-resident hunting license. The GCA still requires you to go through an FFL, since sort-of not across state lines is still sort-of across state lines, but at least you can do it in IL. I'd be willing to bet that many Illinois FFLs wouldn't want to touch that situation (and would probably tell you it's illegal, despite the law above). Otherwise you have to wait until your father visits you and go through a Florida FFL. Then there's the what-the-man-doesn't-know-won't-hurt-me way, but you've said you want to be legal. Also Florida may care how you got the firearm.
  7. I thought there was a topic for this case, but I can't find it if there is. The suit was brought in the Eastern Wisconsin Federal District Court, which is the jurisdiction where Armslist is incorporated. The estranged husband of Sara Schmidt was a prohibited person. He bought a firearm from a listing on Armslist, then used the firearm to kill her and himself. Webber, representing the estate of Sara Schmidt, sued Armslist for her wrongful death, claiming that Armslist, by its design, assisted the sale of a firearm to Schmidt's estranged husband and failed to investigate him as a potential buyer to prevent the sale. Armslist moved to dismiss the lawsuit on two grounds: (1) the Communications Decency Act provides "safe harbor" immunity to web sites regarding content posted by others; and (2) Armslist was uninvolved in the actions of Schmidt's husband. Webber moved to have the case removed to the Western Pennsylvania Federal District Court, which is the jurisdiction where the events of the case took place. The judge rejected the defendant motion to dismiss the case based on the CDA (citing the CDA's safe harbor intent was to provide protection only for defamation, obscenity, and copyright infringement, as per the CA7 precedent) and plaintiff motion to remove the case to Pennsylvania. He granted the defendant motion to dismiss based on Armslist "being too remote" from the actions of Schmidt's husband. Decision (PDF)
  8. Opinion As a reminder ... ... so Deerfield's AWB remains overturned. Last year Deerfield said that it would continue to "enforce" the ban, even though it had been overturned by the Appellate Court, but that enforcement would be limited to citation issuance, not seizure. I guess that makes it an issue of whether someone who gets a citation decides to pay the citation or to pay a lawyer to fight it, ticket by ticket.
  9. 2nd thought: If it was a P320, maybe she can sue Sig. Obviously only a manufacturing or design defect could be at fault.
  10. As I understand it, you had a good lawyer. Supervision is run by the Parole Division of the Department of Corrections, which typically subjects people on supervision (misdemeanor) to the same conditions as people on parole (felony), which means no guns allowed. A good lawyer will got that condition, and probably several others, eliminated. Merely average lawyers tend to let it slip past them.
  11. Also a negligent discharge is not a misfire and not an accident. The story was written by a reporter, a job which focuses on the use of words, who apparently does not know the definitions of words. Situation normal.
  12. BH Spring Solutions has a 3-video (at this time) series. PDF at the link.
  13. Half-price is the cost to replace a lost card. Maybe that's what you were thinking. Yes, the old card remains valid as long as you applied for renewal before expiration and as long as it hasn't been denied. COVID rules have thrown a couple weird exceptions into that, but COVID rules aren't forever, and they don't add extra hoops, anyway. I suspect the state only wants to know your address history so it can double-check your criminal records from those states/counties. I doubt you'd get denied if you're off by a day or a month. Gaps could raise questions, though. While that's an educated guess, it's still just a guess.
  14. I'm not sure what post you're agreeing with, but it's legal to use non-lethal force to protect property. That would be considered lethal force. For "threat of imminent death or great bodily injury," broken bones and internal injuries counts.
