  1. Except those rewards come from law enforcement or are put up by family members of the victims. Under the Texas law you sue the person directly. That is a distinct difference.
  2. IIRC the first case has 4 FFLs listed, the second had about 70, assuming the third had similar numbers chances are your local FFL is not a plaintiff anyway and can't say anything but no.
  3. I would also assume a plaintiff can buy non-firearm items (such as magazines) out of state from anyone willing to sell them to you, and bring them back in state. Firearms are a different story since an out of state FFL would still have to comply with IL laws, so not being a plaintiff would mean the transfer would be barred, but they could theoretically ship to a plaintiff FFL in state for you to pick it up, again assuming you can find an FFL willing to conduct the sale in the first place.
  4. The fact that the federal government doesn't have the manpower to enforce its laws without help from the states. Same goes for immigration law, and now gun control laws as more and more states decide they are through helping.
  5. A higher court, or perhaps the same court but not at this point in the case. It may also be that a TRO is not the appropriate relief for non-plaintiffs and an injunction is needed instead? Or maybe those are legalese for the same thing? I don't typically follow state-level cases.
  6. Assuming we are only talking about braced ARs. Other pistols are a different store, I believe a CZ Skorpion with a folding brace comes in at 25.5in. A Micro Draco AK would be even shorter.
  7. Don't quote me on since there was a lot of confusion when it was passed but IIRC you only need a CCR for <26in OAL. <16in barrel with >26in OAL doesn't need CCR. In any case I would hope the ATF would take a pending CCR application along with the form 1 and let it play out as long as everything is filed within 120 days.
  8. I would hope if his local FFL is a plaintiff they would be aware of that and proceed accordingly.
  9. The ability to accept a magazine (of any capacity) merely triggers the feature test, which a Glock 19 passes. The gun is legal, magazines over 15 rounds are not. (C) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine or that may be readily modified to accept a detachable magazine, if the firearm has one or more of the following: (i) a threaded barrel; (ii) a second pistol grip or another feature capable of functioning as a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand; (iii) a shroud attached to the barrel or that partially or completely encircles the barrel, allowing the bearer to hold the firearm with the non-trigger hand without being burned, but excluding a slide that encloses the barrel; (iv) a flash suppressor; (v) the capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip; or (vi) a buffer tube, arm brace, or other part that protrudes horizontally behind the pistol grip and is designed or redesigned to allow or facilitate a firearm to be fired from the shoulder.
  10. I've only had to do sobriety tests twice in my life, but neither time were multiple officers present, I don't think the officer had a body camera either time, and one of them the officer even had me move to the side of his cruiser so I wasn't on the dash cam. No matter what "procedures" are in place officers will find ways to not follow them. And following up with a blood/urine test simply goes back to the my original point about THC concentrations in the blood not being predictive as to level of inebriation for a particular individual.
  11. The tests are subjective and can often be deemed inadmissible in court if standardized procedures aren't followed to the letter. That's why even after conducing a field sobriety test cops will still send you for a blood or breath test.
  12. So it looks like the melting point law only applies to handguns, and not rifles like the Hi-Point Carbine. It also only applies to FFLs manufacturing or selling to non-FFLs, not mere possession by an individual, or to private sales. (h) While holding any license as a dealer, importer, manufacturer or pawnbroker under the federal Gun Control Act of 1968, manufactures, sells or delivers to any unlicensed person a handgun having a barrel, slide, frame or receiver which is a die casting of zinc alloy or any other nonhomogeneous metal which will melt or deform at a temperature of less than 800 degrees Fahrenheit. For purposes of this paragraph, (1) "firearm" is defined as in the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act; and (2) "handgun" is defined as a firearm designed to be held and fired by the use of a single hand, and includes a combination of parts from which such a firearm can be assembled.
  13. Part of that issue is that unlike alcohol a simple % test isn't predictive as to a person's level of inebriation, one person might have a relatively high mg/kg THC level and be perfectly coherent and cognizant, while another could have a fairly low level and be totally out of it.
  14. Hi-Point carbines are banned by name in Cook County, and in the new state ban. I believe they also would be banned by features under both laws, so the melting point wouldn't even apply.
  15. I wouldn't expect Gander to be using the gun store CC code since (I assume) most of their business is non-gun.
