  1. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/illinois-loses-appeal-gun-control-law-leaving-restraining-order-effect The state of Illinois lost an appeal on Tuesday after a lower court judge issued a restraining order on a newly enacted ban on some semiautomatic rifles as well as high-capacity magazines.
  2. It does appear that WEEK in Peoria told the viewers the wrong information about the whole state being covered.
  3. Our local news said it covered the whole state. It dealt with the legislator passing it within 48 hours but the subject of the bill changed from the first reading. I'm just repeating what the local news said.
  4. Like this topic should be moved to Effingham county - Accuracy firearms
  5. From what I understood they were going after was that the first reading of the bill that was voted on had nothing to do with the final bill so the actual bill purpose being voted on only had two readings and not three. This was normal under Madigan and it shouldn't be considered the norm.
  6. Just wondering if just because you would be arrested by lets say the State Police and the Sheriff says no way are they going to put you in their jail is to have the arrest itself be the reason to take all your guns since you would loose your FOID and CCL. Waiting Patiently for the temporary order to put a pause on the statute and our win in the courts.
  7. I didn't want post this on the message board, but the governor can backdoor remove the sheriff by removing their certification to be a police officer.

      Luckily that will not happen in my county (McHenry). Here’s the bio of our coroner BBC03968-63C7-41F7-A945-85287B750DE9.thumb.jpeg.06b1453188ae4f288ec7664c6526c8b4.jpeg

      Why does what seems like a pm show publicly for everyone?

      Reading through various parts of the law, it appears that for the Governor to do much of anything, he is going to have to get the courts involved. 


      My guess, before we get to that point, lawsuits will already have been filed and TRO/injunctions will have been issued making most of this a mute point till the final court ruling is issued. 

  8. This is the statement from Sheriff Watkins from Peoria County: “As the Sheriff of Peoria County, I oppose the legislative bill that was recently passed banning law-abiding citizens from buying certain types of firearms. This is another example of Chicago policy being pushed downstate on responsible gun owners. This bill does not solve the root cause of the problem. The real focus should be on the Mental Health Crisis that’s plaguing our communities that I see increasing every day in Peoria County.” McLean County Sheriff Matt Lane said the following: “The right to keep and bear arms for defense of life, liberty and property is regarded as an inalienable right of the people. If the intent of the legislative branch of this state is to change the U.S. Constitution, there is a process that was created long ago to accomplish such a change. Changing Illinois law in what I believe is total conflict with the U.S. Constitution is not how it is done. As your sheriff I will continue to defend all of your rights under the Constitution.” From the WEEK TV.
  9. Peoria County Sheriff just reported that he opposes the bill but he did not Confirm that he would enforce it. According to WEEKTV, Peoria.
  10. At the range I shot at, the Illinois state police, Woodford County, Marshall County, and other police officers qualify. interesting!!!!
