  1. From the tape it sounds as if compliance with police orders have been spotty. How were the “compliance checks” conducted without a search warrant? The infomercial at the end of the presentation on how to denounce your neighbor was interesting. Orwellian, but interesting.
  2. If I read this correctly providing information to ISP is an option currently. It simply removes criminal liability from the record keeping requirement. But, a question, what is the current time that a transfer must be retained? It is not specified in the quote. Also, it looks as if anyone buying any gun from a dealer must retain the transfer information, not just guns transferred from a private party. Laws and and regulations such as this only serve to remind me of the unwillingness of governments to actually suppress crime. But, that would mean governments would have to arrest and prosecute their voting block. Instead they create convoluted and vague regulations that are meant to be enforced on those who are the most compliant. They scream about “gun violence”, whatever that is, and do nothing about actual crime. Government’s deflection from reality and their unwillingness to do anything other than cast blame on those least likely to have anything to do with the problem has become so excessive that real people, who live real lives, will soon ignore their petty rules. And why not? When actual accountability for anything is absent no one will willingly obey. Additionally, we need to remain united as people who are very concerned about a particular civil right and our relationship with government. Being united means that the denigration of those who practice a branch of our passion we don’t appreciate doesn’t mean they are less concerned or even less active in our defense. This practice of denying others in our ranks an equal place because they are different only serves those who want us fractured and complacent.
  3. My distrust is only 2 years old. It’s based on the hyperbole of the leader and the machinations of their lobbyists. Empty rhetoric, slow reactions, and royal assumptions that only they can speak for gun owners.
  4. Thanks again for the alert. Glad we don't have to wait for the ISRA to get the word out.
  5. Regardless of Madigan, in the views of some as being an even keel of the Socialist Democrat boat, how appropriate is it for Mr. Pearson, supposedly representing the political opposition, to have given any comfort to the opposition? When a political party wants to make its “bones” on the elimination of a person’s civil rights why help him?
  6. I just read the Thursday missive from the ISRA. From my perspective as an Illinois taxpayer and shooter I find it difficult to support Richard Pearson’s praise for Mike Madigan. Perhaps all those years Pearson has spent in Springpatch has allowed him to warm up to the leftists, but when my liberties and freedom are at stake I cannot praise anyone who seeks my subservience. With statements such as, “Michael Madigan was the best Speaker of the House in any state”, because he intimidated his fellow party members, one must question the quality of leadership of the ISRA.
  7. Is there a list of when these buy backs will happen? I have a few items I’d like to dispose of.
  8. So what friend of a Socialist Democratic Party member is in the micro stamping business?
  9. Well Mike, it's just the idea ISRA has again decided to be the arbiter of our rights. No discussion, no statement, no authority, just do it so we little people don't have to be bothered with it. The attitude is ripe with aragance. It's hard not to believe that the leadership holds the opinion that they're the grown ups and that we're just children who need their guidance. It's reminds one of Cook County politics.
  10. The ISRA has abdicated its position as the defender of our civil rights. They pick and choose proposed laws that only they assume are best for us. They do that for hidden, unarticulated reasons and then claim they do it because we, the members, could never understand the problems of Illinois politics. No one selected or elected them to do that. They appear to act only for their own benefit. They have never solicited opinions and have scoffed at those who have tried to contribute ideas. They have created a closed administration for the association and plan to keep it that way. This is the second incident of their usurpation of the member's desires. It is time for change at the ISRA.
  11. I found it interesting that two people who stated they represented ISRA showed no position on HB2541 and one on HB3144. I love the slight of hand attempts at ISRA. This is the same imperial behavior they’ve shown last year. I guess we are all just little people who are inept in the ways of politics and need to be force feed their excrement.
  12. Many thanks Mauser for your kind efforts to keep us informed. Without your work we would be blind to the machinations of state government and our “allies”.
  13. Just noticed in the winter issue of the Illinois Shooter, delivered to my house today Dec 27th, that ISRA is seeking applicants for the Board of Directors. The application deadline is Dec 31st. Has anyone seen this ad previously? Have I missed it in earlier issues of the shooter? BTW, the same issue carries a notice for the annual meeting in May. I hope members here will attend.
