  1. Elections matter. If Hillary was elected, she would have 3 picks for the court, this case would have gone the other way and scotus would have overturned Heller and Macdonald.
  2. https://cdn.ca9.uscourts.gov/datastore/opinions/2022/01/20/20-56220.pdf The "alternative draft opinion" after the real opinion is the funniest snark I've ever read in a judicial opinion. The judge who wrote that will definitely have annoyed his liberal judge colleagues. This case will go en banc in the 9th circus. No way the lib judges are going to ever deny the government the ability to shut down gun stores on any pretext that is presented to them. But do read and enjoy the snark, haha.
  3. He makes some good points. 👍 Truth is what makes satire fun and funny.
  4. He is the other Howard, not the original OG. But we are doppelgangers. Sent from my SM-G996U using Tapatalk
  5. That was outstanding great work by everyone involved. I worked a couple of events with Otis and his daughter. Otis was such a nice and kind person and raised a great family. He signed a copy of the book about his life and this struggle which I still have. David and Colleen are such good people too, many of us miss them. I think about them and the terrible events they endured after they moved. I hope they are well. Sent from my SM-G996U using Tapatalk
  6. Yikes! On a lighter note, I was heading over there to ch3ck on their 22LR inventory... yet prayers for victims but not for perps.
  7. May be broader. Could include the whole country, limited to people who have the right to keep arms under the 2A.
  8. Thanks and good luck to Andre and Maria ! (and thanks to whomever is paying our lawyers, maybe it's the NRA, but I'm not sure, doesn't matter). One State, One Law on the Right to Bear Arms.
  9. lolololololol lolololololol lolololololol That lawyer doesn't understand that when you have a losing hand, just shout a little louder ! And that quote was from the defendants first sentence, lolol.
  10. lololol Merry Christmas & Best Holiday Greetings! (I like all the holidays).
  11. Excellent announcement! Victory! I just now got the news. Many people have been harmed and worse by Illinois's violation of our civil rights on this issue. When I sometimes hear complaints from people who don't like the Second Amendment, well, they should think of the people like our plaintiffs in this case, as well as the many other victims through the years. Perhaps they think their "feelings" are more important than that though.
  12. I was over on calguns.net and saw that there was another epic smack-down of Chicago filed by Gura yesterday (8/29). The top post in this link has Gura's Opposition to Defendant's Motion to Dismiss: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=472232
  13. lol! Or win good prizes, like license-free constitutional carry, at least until the legiscreatures scramble to enact a licensing law.
  14. I have no legit knowledge in this area of the law, but I think under our Constitution "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" includes lawful non-citizens. Meaning every person who obeys the law, should be able to use firearms. I assume that the IL FOID act excludes all persons who are either not a citizen, or who cannot provide a valid alien registration number. I guess the question hinges upon what is an alien registration number.
  15. Hunting in South Africa: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=hunt+in+South+Africa&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1280&bih=892&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi Thanks for posting, David. All the best to you.
  16. http://www.isp.state.il.us/docs/6-181.pdf I think "alien registration number" on the FOID app means you must have a "green card", i.e. permanent residency in the U.S.of.A. (usually thought of as pre-citizenship).
  17. I have the most awesome, detailed gun picture. I'm uploading it now, this may take a few minutes... thanks for your patience.
  18. Hi Federal Farmer. Wouldn't it be fun to have a big show of people from inside and outside Chicago to use the mobile range when it arrives on September 24 ? I live near the city and work in the Loop. I'll bring some Chicago-legal 10-round pistols and revolvers for some good-ole' American fun. With enough people using the range, we could get TV reporting of the event too. How's that? I'd rather get donations and grants to subsidize low-income Chicagoan's use of the range to acquire their CFPs and have the range booked all day every day. FF, it's not either-or, right? Maybe both could be accomplished together. A few dollars and a little time... and a few volunteers is all it would take.

I live near the city and work in the Loop. I would bring some Chicago-legal 12-round-maximum pistols and revolvers for some good-ole' American fun. I guarantee I would be there.

  20. Ezell / ISRA / SAF / Gura --- new request for temporary restraining order against Chicago's ban on practice ranges: http://bit.ly/dvfBtb On September 24, the mobile gun range is supposed to roll in to serve the good people of Chicago. When it does, I will enjoy driving into Chicago from the 'burbs ... bringing guns ... and will I will enjoy the mobile range and the spectacle of it all. It will smell like... Victory. LOL !!
  21. Perhaps we need a Northern Illinois FOID drive? Tim I like CCW on campus. Good luck to you with the CPD brass. Maybe the CPD "every-person"... but not the brass. Students for Concealed Carry on Campus will be doing a drive this winter in Chicago hopefully with the assistance of local police departments.
