  1. Not sure how I'll vote yet, but I know one thing. Jaba the Hut's latest TV ads make me sick every single morning. Suddenly he cares about the little guys here in Illinois. Suddenly he cares about fuel taxes being frozen (temporarily) and suddenly he cares about lowering property taxes.. What an ENORMOUS, lying piece of dung he is. That smirk on his face in his latest ad tells you all you need to know.
  2. This is also the REAL beginning of the government trying to demonize 3D printers. They want to regulate them as well. Just wait and see.. They already tried to regulate the 3D printer files but failed.
  3. No, it will NOT fire multiple rounds per trigger pull. Ever. The operator pulls the trigger AGAIN after the trigger resets. There is no auto sear in the trigger pack either. It uses the hammer being pushed rearward by the bolt carrier to force the trigger to reset forward, even if you're still applying rearward pressure. It still takes you pulling the trigger again for every single round to be discharged.
  4. No, it's most definitely not. An auto (M16) trigger lets you hold the trigger back without the trigger resetting, while the firearm continues firing rounds on the disconnector and auto sear. The FRT forces the trigger to reset (forward) even against your rearward pull, unless you pull hard enough to stop the cycle. It takes just the right amount of constant rearward pressure to make the FRT function perfectly, along with the perfect buffer weight, etc.
  5. That's where you're wrong bucko. A BINARY TRIGGER does as you describe. One shot on pull, one shot on release. A FORCED RESET TRIGGER only fires one shot on pull, and then forces the trigger reset (moving forward) even though you're still pulling against the trigger. Then once the bolt is in battery again, it allows you to pull the trigger again. If you release the trigger before the bolt goes in to battery, a second shot won't happen. Of course, the timing of all of this is in milliseconds so it's difficult to get single shots off..
  6. So the one-off gun that my grandfather built before ANY gun control laws, which has been appraised at $25,000+ and has no serial number; I'm supposed to deface and devalue that firearm just to appease the government? Um, no.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. If it hit bone, it would likely rupture the arm like a ripe melon..
  10. Is there a video or audio clip of him saying this?
  11. 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.
  12. 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..
  13. 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..
  14. 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..
  15. If you live in Effingham county, why even worry about a FOID card since the local police have sworn to ignore the FOID requirement..
  16. To my understanding the police chief has also been a supporter of the sanctuary county movement starting in Effingham. Any evidence to the contrary?
  17. I posted it because the "other side" will try to use this in any way they can against the sanctuary counties, since that's the county it all started in. Especially because the Effingham police chief was so vocal in supporting the sanctuary county movement. I see it as a "sanctuary county" related issue and thought others might like to know about it.
  18. It seems like there's some unrest in the county that started this all. The police seem to be breaking ranks to out their chief. https://www.effinghamdailynews.com/news/local_news/officers-telecommunicators-vote-no-confidence-in-effingham-police-chief/article_c8945579-3633-5ed2-bea9-26e6b2c65743.html http://www.thexradio.com/news/78-local-news/39082-effingham-police-officers-and-telecommunicators-vote-no-confidence-in-police-chief https://www.effinghamdailynews.com/news/local_news/billboard-calls-for-support-of-police-chief/article_80dcf414-7fa4-5515-99ba-9dfc6d954add.html
  19. It's just a matter of time until a game warden catches someone without their FOID in Effingham. No county resolution will help them with that.. I applaud their idea but it seems pretty toothless.
  20. There seems to be a staggering amount of helots in this thread.. Glad to pay those fines.. Happy about an ever increasing amount of nanny laws.. I prefer complete freedom myself, and I don't mind being held 100% responsible for any damage or harm I may cause with my reckless behavior or actions, but I don't need a squad of glorified revenue generators to assure that I stay in line.. As if laws really stop anything. The slavery mindset is real.
  21. To my knowledge, according to state law you have 500ft after a posted speed limit sign to reduce your speed to the required limit.. I have a close friend that has used this tactic in court to get his ticket dropped. However, proving you did reduce your speed in that 500ft or were ticketed within that 500ft can be difficult in a system where you are guilty until proven innocent.
