  1. I would think that would make it a little easier, as it would behoove the village board to ensure a uniform set of ordinances for the entire village.
  2. Have a look at 29 and 34 in the house map (near Chicago, just to the south) They have a sliver that goes up in the suburbs, and huge "bulb" that goes south into rural areas, to ensure that the urban voters dilute the rural. I used to live in 29 and I'm sure Rep Jones doesn't care a lick about anyone south of I80
  3. Of course because Russian will never meet the conditions any attempt to remove the ban will face an uphill battle in Congress and the courts
  4. It appears the ban will apply to any ammo or firearm manufactured in Russia, regardless of what country its being imported from. But yes, all a company would have to do is set up a factory in another country and manufacture and import from there. I'm kindof hoping Barnaul does this. My AK likes their ammo lol
  5. 754,743. since IL is losing a district. But when you make that your sole metric you get what IL has already: Districts enclosing 400,000 urban democrats, and 350,000 rural conservatives
  6. After the census IL will be reduced to 17 districts, or exactly 6 counties per district Cook county's population is 5,275,541, meaning it would get 6.98 districts, almost exactly 7 Leaving 10 districts for the remaining 101 counties, or almost exactly 10 counties per Of course the division is by population not number of counties, so it wouldn't be 10 counties per district anyway. For example some of the collar counties would basically be one district each, meaning some district will enclose more than 10 counties. In fact the 55 smallest counties would compose just 1 district all together, if they were contiguous Sure, its not as simple as just circle any 10 counties and call it a district, but I'd wager you could draw a decent map using county lines, with Cook being the sole exception
  7. And at a greater carbon footprint. But that's what the environmentalists want. They don't want cleaner or more efficient fossil fuels, they want to eliminate them entirely, therefore any innovation that might cause some in the general public to say "this is good enough, we don't have to ban it now" must be stymied (same logic applies to gun control)
  8. I guess it would apply to someone who had a FOID, bought a gun, and then let the FOID expire. Or someone who moved from out of state with guns and never got a FOID.
  9. I think he means district lines should run along county lines, even if the district encloses multiple counties Of course you'd still have to squeeze 7 or 8 districts into Cook County, due to the high population
  10. I see they want to expand 2 to dilute even more rural voters Here is the current map, if you want to compare
  11. This never happens under Chevron, quite the opposite in fact. The Chevron defense essentially says the court can't find an agency misinterpreted a statute, because agency's power to interpret the statute supersedes the court's interpretation
  12. So if its deceptive to market it as a combat weapon, what does that mean for all the people who keep calling it a military-grade weapon of war?
  13. And if they had turned over a curated collection of documents containing only those relevant to the case Yahoo would be writing an article about how Remington is deliberately failing to comply with the court orders to turn over "all documents"
  14. With some clever design you don't even have to go that far. For example for e-tickets Metra uses a moving background that changes color when you tap it. That way if you try to show the conductor a screenshot or even a gif/movie you won't fool them
  15. The problem with the color coded DL background is you introduce yet another agency into doing background checks. Secretary of State would need to do a BGC to determine who is/might be prohibited in order to determine what color to use. Ummmmm, no thanks, there is NO NEED for a BGC for a DL. The only other possible way to do it is use a different color for FOID &/or CCL holders and simply declare others as “prohibited” thus instantly identifying who has what. THAT’S even worse. Not only that, but it would also seem to introduce an invasion of privacy. Anyone who you have to show your DL to will then know you're a prohibited person
  16. In an email from FPC they stated one of their lawyers couldn't think of any normal braced pistol that could pass
  17. I'd say no chance of grandfathering and anti gun illinois will enjoy squeezing you guys out of your pistols if you aren't prepared to change the barrels and make them 16"+ rifles. I read that folks in Maryland can only have an AK in pistol form. This kills that for them and the only real option available to them is to forfeit the firearm. I'm sure other places have this problem too. This doesn't affect all, or even most, AK/AR pistols, only those with the arm braces would be banned under this rule (and it would actually be the brace that gets banned, not the pistol itself)
  18. I'm not technically old enough to remember, but I have read about Terry Kath
  19. They aren't just omitting facts they are outright lying. Background checks are conducted regularly for FOID holders, reducing the length of time a card is valid for won't increase the frequency of those checks
  20. With a 420 grain bullet... As long as they don't try to use 420 grains of powder
  21. That's still odd though, isn't it? I thought the ruling was favorable to ISRA
  22. I can't say for sure because I've never been in the situation, but every single bit of training and practice I've done all the way done to just blowing off steam at the range my finger has been off the trigger until the very instant I decide to shoot. I can't imagine I'd have my finger on the trigger at the range the mob was, because because if any of them tried to rush me or bring a firearm up I'd have more than enough time to move my finger to the trigger and squeeze I agree. Since spike in gun purchases due to the lockdowns and now the civil unrest I've felt that these new gun owners are going to end up largely a new generation of Funds. This time though it won't be hunting rifles and shotguns that are sacrosanct, it will be handguns. They will still believe that no needs and "assault rifle" and will keep a pre-existing belief that hunting is barbaric and unneccessary That he had an AR gives me some hope, but I don't think he's representative of the majority of new gun owners
  23. Technically the Federal government can only regulate interstate commerce in machine guns as well, however the courts have affirmed that intra-state commerce in firearms can have an effect on the market nationally, thus federal law can regulate that as well http://cdn.ca9.uscourts.gov/datastore/opinions/2013/08/23/10-36094.pdf
  24. I already explained my position here, basically it means the mere presence of a firearm isn't sufficient evidence for the state to deduce how it got there (which pretty much should go without saying, but here I am having to say it anyway) Plus there are plenty of ways for the firearm to be there without an intentional crime being committed: Family member had a FOID and passed away. Firearm was purchased very long ago before FOID was a thing. Person moved from out of state with the gun and never got a FOID. Give me some time and I can probably think of more As for ammo, almost any state in the union will sell you ammo without needing to see your FOID
