  1. Passing a law allowing us to legally own suppressors has zero to do with preemption on firearms and transportation of them. The anti's are ALWAYS going to attempt to repeal everything we manage to get passed in our favor, regardless of new laws being passed. There is zero basis for the state to repeal anything to do with conceal carry legislation, because it has went well for the citizens of Illinois. It has been quiet on that front where citizens carrying concealed arms is concerned. Any bill to repeal it would have little public support, other than the normal anti's that we always fight on this. Every single legislative session the anti's constantly try to ram through numerous bills to erode our right to bear arms in Illinois. It baffles me why the members here, or any Illinois citizens for that matter, wouldn't want to FLOOD the state capitol with bills trying to further our rights. Overwhelm them the same as they do to our side. Make our voice loud and clear with as many bills as possible. Get them passed, and then work on trying to amend them in our favor yet again. It sure seems like IllinoisCarry, and especially Molly's response, is attempting to herd the masses down the same path as the ISRA as of late. It's fine though. Keep on explaining to everyone why you simply capitulate to these anti's. You're getting good at it. You all must be well-versed in that NRA handbook.
  2. Not sorry, but I and many others will be supporting this. You gain ground when and where you can, then you take the results and data from those wins and apply them to crafting new state laws that benefit us all. Remaining neutral on this is spineless and does nothing to further our rights. IllinoisCarry is leading people in the wrong direction here.
  3. If it hit bone, it would likely rupture the arm like a ripe melon..
  4. Is there a video or audio clip of him saying this?
  5. Illinois: garbage in - garbage out The way they keep expanding and altering the FOID, the more it becomes apparent that our 2nd amendment rights are no longer a right, but a privilege granted by government.
  6. Why waste your time turning them in? Just leave while you can. Let them be outraged. Let them threaten a new citizen of another state. Nothing will come of it.
  7. Just allow citizens to run basic background checks on existing state IDs and drivers licenses, the check would not have to give details just a yes/no confirmation for things like firearm purchases, voting or to see if the person is say a registered sex offender heck use it for alchohol and smoking verification as well to confirm the ID is legit and not fake. Sounds great! Let's just do away with privacy rights altogether..
  8. In my younger years I went through the court system for multiple violations for several different things. What can I say? I was a heck raiser. At one point I went through "court supervision" which sounds much the same as what you describe. If you complete it without any other violations then it comes off of your record after completion. After completion it never affected my future FOID card which I got years later. Of course, it's a different world now so your results will vary... The best thing you can do would be to sit down with legal counsel and figure this out. That's my advise..
  9. I've never read a longer piece based on backwards, circular logic in all my life. Just wow. "But as amicus Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence demonstrated in its brief, “[t]he weight of empirical evidence shows that licensing laws like Illinois’ are likely to be highly effective at reducing gun homicides and suicides and at decreasing gun purchases by criminals.” I would argue that since the FOID act was put in place, criminal violence using illegal firearms has only risen. "In sum, if the Second Amendment allows prohibitions on gun possession and ownership by felons, minors, the mentally ill, and other presumptively risky people — which both this Court and the United States Supreme Court have held that it does" ...and that's where you're wrong bud. The 2nd Amendment allows no such thing. It's right there, clearly written. THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE (ALL PEOPLE) TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS (ALL ARMS) SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. Anything to the contrary is nothing more than a modern judges' opinion/ruling. Otherwise, the 2nd Amendment would've included the language pertaining to felons, mentally ill, etc..
  10. If you live in Effingham county, why even worry about a FOID card since the local police have sworn to ignore the FOID requirement..
  11. To my understanding the police chief has also been a supporter of the sanctuary county movement starting in Effingham. Any evidence to the contrary?
