  1. I am genuinely afraid. http://thehayride.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/people-of-walmart-31334-1258741009-281.jpg
  2. At some point, the hoarders and the profiteers (god bless 'em) are going to realize that they had better: A. Stop paying top dollar for .22LR and B. get rid of the .22LR they are holding on to for resale on Gunbroker, etc. When this happens, look for an oversupply of .22LR to come to market. It's all about supply and demand. I have faith that the free market forces will prevail.
  3. WalMart policy is to follow the local law. Open, concealed. In AZ, I have seen open carry 1911 on the hip, no one cares.
  4. Over the next few days we should see some state attorneys come out with their positions on this. I looks to me like the AUUW law is toast. If I have a right to carry a loaded weapon outside my home, then just because the state re-works some words and adds some permit scheme that is not yet operational, does not change the logic the court uses to come to it's opinion. Chicago tried to get away with this. It did not work. They had to pay some money.
  5. Hopefully, what is happening is the ones that are deferring are looking for someone else to jump into the pool first.
  6. I have a friend that lost their Illinois FOID card. The only resolution was to re-apply for a new one. On January 19, 2013, they filled out a new application and mailed it in. On February 4, 2013 the check was cashed. The Illinois State Police website says the time to process is supposed to be 30 days from their receipt of the application. Repeated calls to the ISP inquiry line over the past several days resulted in a recorded message that says they are overwhelmed, and to call back later, then it hangs up! Internet searches on the subject reveal articles that indicate 60 or more days to process an application. One article says that the March 2013 application numbers were an all time monthly record of over 70K. (that's $10 per application, in one month or $8.4 million annualized if this continues) Today, the telephone call got through to a live person after being on hold for approximately 10 minutes. The person responded that the application was submitted to the "background check" on March 1, 2013 and that it would be "some time" before the FOID card would be OK'd for processing. When asked how much longer before it would be sent out, they were told that it would be hard to say exactly. When asked if another 30 days would be reasonable, the response was that it would be several more weeks for sure. This is going to mean that a FOID card application will take close to 4 months from application to receipt. How will sending out a renewal notice 60 days in advance of expiration work for someone when it takes 120 days to turn the application into a ID card? I see a lot of new criminals by no fault of their own.
