  1. In other words, what people have said for years. People who are going to do things have no regard for laws, and laws probably would not have stopped the shooter from getting a gun as they would have likely gotten one from the street. Interestingly if you look up about 3d printed guns, I saw something on youtube once, and apparently people have competitions with 3d printed guns. I'd be willing to guess if they ever banned guns that a cottage industry would spring up, and people who are criminals would be able to access them still.
  2. Update on my first time app. I’d applied on September 21. Checked this morning and now I show that it was printed on January 18. Just waiting on the mailman now I guess. Didn’t submit prints.
  3. I haven’t been waiting that long for my first time application. Mom and dad live in Ohio and said it took them about a week to get their permit. They just had to be fingerprinted and pick it up from the sheriff.
  4. Update on mine today, first time application. I originally applied 9/21 last year. My status went to Under Review, but now says my submission successfully completed the background review and has been sent to await printing. So hopefully sometime in the next 30 days.
  5. I’m down state, but my local range I think they charge 25 to install new sights.
  6. So I actually got an email this afternoon stating my status had changed. The status is still Under Review, but now the other part says "We have completed our initial review of your submission and have determined that all necessary items are present. Your application has been moved to the background review queue."
  7. I applied on September 21, mine says the same as the guy above. First time application.
  8. I paid 11 for my foid, then 150 for my ccw class, then 153 to the state for applying for ccl(haven’t been approved yet). But you figure, 311 bucks plus the price of firearms, say 250-300 each for decent budget handguns, plus ammunition. So probably close to $1000 just to do that and probably have their gun rights taken away for life, or at least a long time, and probably a long time to get them back if they ever can.
  9. I was listening to the radio on the way to work today, and they were talking about this, the NRA I guess is involved and said they are going to argue that the way NY's process is clearly violates the 2nd Amendment. So their argument from what I remember was going to be that they need to rule in favor of allowing people the right to bear arms, because otherwise, if you don't uphold the one amendment, then basically you'd weaken the other amendments as well. Can't remember the exact wording, but it seemed to be to that effect.
  10. Whenever I've gone to buy, I've had instant approval. A friend of mine however seems to always get delayed by a few days.
  11. I say don't go looking for trouble. In that situation, call the cops and let them do their thing. Now if the guy is about to kill the lady, maybe you think differently there? Not related to this story, I know I drive in St. Louis traffic a bit, and ppl pass you with no signals, cut ppl off etc. I just set my cruise and go along, if I see where someone is acting weird, I just try to stay away from them. In other words, I just try to keep my nose clean and stay away from people that would do me harm. I don't have a ccw yet, so obviously packing isn't an option, but even if I did, my inclination is that using a ccw weapon is only a last resort where I'm potentially cornered and have no other option, or my family is in danger. I hope that I NEVER EVER have to use that ccw once I get one, but again, it would be only a last resort, seems to be the safest bet all around. For example, that story above, what if the husband had snapped and picked up the guy's gun? That story could have potentially become a triple homicide.
  12. Submitted a new app today. Already had an active foid, so we’ll see how long it takes. Only thing I can see is my wife took my pic and it was more of a shot of abdomen upwards as opposed to shoulders and head only, so hopefully they don’t fuss much over that.
  13. https://ammoseek.com/ Basically a search engine for ammo. I’ve seen prices recently around 18.25 per box. Keep in mind it is going to route you to different retailers, this is basically kind of like a search engine.
  14. Listening to the radio this morning, I think the judge’s opinion was 84 or 94 pages. The guest they had on seemed pretty sure this will land in the Supreme Court. I guess there was another case in Maryland that was similar and went the other way, so they seem to think the Supreme Court will need to decide it.
