  2. Never had a problem in the places I have been to in Lake and McHenry counties. Even the dreaded Bass Pro in Gurnee that supposedly is super strict on everything took my CCL. I'm more curious how the new electronic FOID will work with online purchases. Would you just send them a screenshot from your phone? Seems like the ISP would disable screenshots so you have to check validity every time. I cannot imagine how ISP could disable screen shots on a portable device such as a pocket phoneYou capture the button presses with your app and handle them before they go to the Os. I've seen a few apps do it over the years. Edit: it's easier than that: https://medium.com/nomtek/screenshot-preventing-on-mobile-apps-9e62f51643e9

  4. "The Good" (beginning January 2022): If a FOID expires during the valid period of a CCL, the FOID remains valid until the CCL expires.The ISP may optionally renew an expired FOID automatically within the CCL validity period.A FOID is automatically renewed for 10 years when the CCL is renewed.If a FOID is suspended (instead of revoked) for less than one year due to a protective order, it is to be reinstated automatically when the protective order expires (instead of requiring a new application).We need only to trust in the system to work and not to need poking and prodding for us to receive the bounty.BTW, there doesn't appear to be any mention of a cost for the "automatic" FOID renewals, so presumably they are "free" (or at least, "free" with the renewal cost of the CCL). "The Maybe" (for which there are no deadlines specified): ISP is directed to develop an electronic FOID and CCL for mobile phones and other devices.ISP is directed to develop a system that allows FOID and CCL holders to receive email or text messages instead of paper mail notices.ISP is directed to combine FOID and CCL cards into a single card.Some call it "good." Some don't. "The Ugly": I don't have enough time, attention, or electrons to list it all. Does it have a provision to automatically send you a new FOID card when it expires during the time while your CCL is valid? Or is it like now, with the covid rules, that your FOID card is valid until 18 months after the end of the "emergency", which many gun shops and retailers will NOT honor? Why not just use your CCL as your FOID during that time? I have been using my CCL as my FOID since I got it. I only use my FOID for online verification.
  5. They went there looking for a man with a gun and they found one. Most cops don't shoot more than the required qualification every year (so they'll clean their gun at least one time per year - not kidding) so he probably died slowly too. People shoot people that don't need to be shot all the time. Cops, CCLs, gangbangers especially. If you are going to involve yourself in a situation like this you have to decide if it is worth it to YOU. Will your family be ok without your income? Will you be OK with some other dude raising your kids? These aren't easy questions that everyone answers the same way. Highly suggest giving this book a read: https://www.amazon.com/dp/057820200X/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_9BYQDKHSCD3V7F9WW0Y2 I have taken enough training classes to know this, a few of my customers are from the Chicago firearm training unit. I have asked them that question and they confirmed it, most LE only practice shooting 1 month b4 quals and never clean their gun. Yes, dirty gun for 10yrs, if not longer. Was born and raised in a gang infested neighborhood in Chicago and know innocent bystanders murdered by gangbangers who were shooting at someone on the sidewalk and hit the bystander in a 2nd floor apartment. The Colorado LE Dept admitted this guy was a hero. Something went wrong, and if I'm going to put the onus of bad judgment (putting that lightly), it goes to LE. This guy made a split second decision to do the right thing, may not have followed proper protocols to announce himself to LE when they approached, and got killed (I didn't say murdered). As conceal carry holders, we support and defend LE, in this situation I am not defending LE and am going to choose the side of the CCL holder. Unless new evidence arises that he seriously compromised himself in this situation, I am defending the CCL holder. In another situation, I might choose the LE's side, but this time I am defending the CCL Holder. I'm more of the mind that choices were made and outcomes resulted. I don't see sides here.

  7. You have to admit that the level of trolling on the part of the dems is legendary. They pass the bill on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre then hold the bill so they can send it to the governor for July 4th.
  8. HB562 got held for reconsideration, which means the house reconciliation vote is treated like it didn't happen. It, or something like it, may pass in the fall session. The easiest way would be to withdraw the hold. There continues to be a lot of noise and misinformation about what passed and what didn't from adherents on both side of the issue. The only thing that got sent to the governor to be enacted is the red flag expansion. My bet is it's going to the governor but they are spacing out the bills because they are expecting a summer of carnage and want the governor to be able to sign bills throughout to show he is doing something.
  9. They make is sound as if these two bills existed prior to their involvement and the Governor told them to take their pick.HB562 is a product of ISRA's negotiation. It couldn't have been part of a choice offered by the Governor without their involvement. It sounds like there were competing efforts and they picked one. Probably not useful to patch onto the name that made it to the floor. JB probably said "I don't care if you do with idiot A's idea or idiot B's idea, I need some institutional racism to show the rich suburban Democrats we are doing something to keep the crime in the poor neighborhoods."
  10. Correction, the colored background was the 92nd assembly so 10 years ago.
  11. Not that I'm supporting them but a different color for registered sex offenders would be next.If your prohibited and a sex offender, stripes? I'm not saying there aren't problems with the idea, but invasion of privacy isn't one of them. Felony convictions and sex offender registries are public records. I took it as recognition that the FOID might be in danger and they need a plan B.
  12. Just spent some time reading the bill, it looks like the media has been misreporting the dual renewal. If the bill passes, your FOID will renew automatically with every purchase or renewal starting January 1, 2023. It also cannot expire if your CCL is still valid. You still have to pay to renew the CCL and jump through those hoops. The electronic FOID also changed from ISP shall create to ISP may create. The other thing that caught my attention is the requirement to study changing the driver's license background for prohibited persons.
  13. There are some things in this bill that are really interesting. We may end up singing the praises of the ISRA for this bill later. I love that SCOTUS is starting to build case law around strict scrutiny although I hope they apply it to something sooner than this law would make it to them. This quote from FULTON ET AL. v. CITY OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, ET AL. brought some light to my day today. Now if they could kick back a few 2A cases the same way to send a clear message,
  14. I've met some good ones over the years. Unfortunately, they have all moved on to become lobbyists. If that doesn't tell you something right there about how broken things are...
  15. There is no such thing as gun violence ! We need to stop using PC terminology. There is however plenty of violence being committed by criminals and gang members. The bought and paid for by George Soros Cook county States Attorney has no plans to prosecute her buddies. If, however you are a decent human being forced to defend yourself or another, look out! While I appreciate the sentiment, using a different phrase would have made it hard to drop that link that shows their hypocrisy.
