  1. 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. 

  2. 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.

  3. 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.”

  5. My grandson is 11 and has a FOID. All you have to do is fill out the online application and when you put in the birthday you are presented with a guardian form to submit. As stated our FOID numbers go up. I also feel everyone in the family should have a FOID if one person has one regardless of whether you like the FOID requirement or not. It alleviates problems if the owner passes away and other things that you can't predict.
