  1. There will be attempts at conversations with house and senate leadership on both sides but I don't know they will listen. If they persist, there will be lawsuits. Period.

  4. https://www.saf.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/49-PI-decision-private-property.pdf Hooray for the Second Amendment Foundation and Firearm Policy Coalition! A federal judge in western New York has granted a preliminary injunction against enforcement of the “private property exclusion” tenet of the state’s new gun control law, calling it unconstitutional. The case, known as Christian et. al. v. Nigrelli, et. al., was brought by the Second Amendment Foundation and Firearms Policy Coalition on behalf of Brett Christian, a private citizen. U.S. District Court Judge John L. Sinatra, Jr. with the U.S. District Court in Buffalo handed down the 27-page ruling. Noting that the private property exclusion “makes it a felony for a license holder to possess a firearm on all private property, unless the relevant property holders actually permit such possession with a sign or by express consent,” Judge Sinatra noted, “Regulation in this area is permissible only if the government demonstrates that the current enactment is consistent with the Nation’s historical tradition of sufficiently analogous regulations…New York fails that test.” Judge Sinatra added, “Property owners indeed have the right to exclude. But the state may not unilaterally exercise that right and, thereby, interfere with the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens who seek to carry for self-defense outside of their own homes.” SAF Founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb was delighted with the ruling, which was issued late Tuesday afternoon. “New York’s efforts to dance around the Supreme Court’s Bruen decision have become a painful exercise in legal acrobatics, which it seems obvious the courts can see through,” Gottlieb observed. “This case illustrates the ridiculous lengths to which lawmakers in Albany have tried to go in their efforts to get around the letter and spirit of the high court ruling.” “Having New York’s unconstitutionally sound law enjoined is a win for the public,” said SAF’s Executive Director Adam Kraut. “New York’s effort to restrict the public’s right to carry arms, through its imposition of outlandish requirements that have no roots in our country’s history and tradition, is a sign of how far its legislature is willing to go when it comes to depriving individuals of their constitutional rights. SAF looks forward to continuing to vindicate the rights of its members and the public.” Judge Sinatra noted in his decision that Christian “is likely to succeed on the merits of his Second and Fourteenth Amendment claims…New York’s new private property exclusion violates the right of individuals to keep and bear arms for self-defense outside their homes.”
  5. Here is a link to some very helpful suggestions. You should send copies of what mental history you have, most notably the evaluation by the psychologist. An attorney is helpful if you can afford one, but not required.
  6. Snedeker v. Will County State's Attorney's Office IL Third District Appellate Court rules against restoration of firearm rights for non-residents who live out-of-state and need to restore their firearm civil rights in Illinois. Even though there is an ISP rule directing non-residents to appeal in the county in which the conviction took place, this opinion says no relief can be granted to non-residents, which means that anyone with an IL domestic conviction or other prohibitor that requires a court petition for restoration is locked out, and cannot restore their rights unless they move back to IL, do the appeal, win, and THEN move back to their current state. An appeal will be filed.
  7. Did they say the same for the House in that last joint resolution?
  8. Senate will convene at 1:30 p.m. today and the House at 3:00 p.m.
  9. Do you mean the training certificate? It is no longer available on line. Message your email address and instructor number to me and I'll get the template to you.
  10. Judge Wood clearly said it was not Atkinson's responsibility to plead his case, she said with Bruen it is now the feds obligation to make their case. She said if this is all you have, then Atkinson wins and feds lose..
  11. "The Second Amendment has gone from a second class right to a SUPER CHARGED RIGHT."
  12. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Oral arguments - Nov. 8th This is the first case I know of to be argued in U.S. 7th Circuit since Bruen and the court's position and questions are spot on with Bruen. Enjoy!

  14. You are so right but you are not alone. I'm reminded of my motto . . . we must always be about setting those brush fires in our own local community and build out from there.
  15. The Illinois State Rifle Association PVF has announced they are endorsing Darren Bailey for Governor. Where do the gubernatorial candidates stand on the Second Amendment? Candidates Darren Bailey and J.B. Pritzker couldn't be more diametrically opposed from each other. Candidate and current governor, J.B. Pritzker is pushing for a weapons and magazine ban. Candidate and firearm owner Darren Bailey supports "Void the FOID" which would eliminate the FOID card. With more than 2.4 million FOID card holders in the state, the voting block of firearm owners could have a definite impact on the gubernatorial election.
  16. Thank you for the update - wish it had been more in your favor but they did leave the window open for restoration of rights in the future .
