  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. That's still odd though, isn't it? I thought the ruling was favorable to ISRA
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Typically, if portions of a law are unconstitutional, the law is striken, and it is up to the legislators to craft a new law that is compliant. To suggest portions of the law don't pass muster, but leave it alone and just rule the defendant not guilty is crazy. The take away of their action here suggests, you do NOT need a FOID if you have firearms in your home. However, they purposely left off the part about how one would acquire a gun to bring into your home for said self-defense, and/or how you would obtain ammo as well. Clearly, they are smart enough to understand what they were doing. Essentially, this ruling was crap shows to what lengths card carrying Democrats will go to support their Anti-2A keystone. My understanding is the opposite, severability doctrine is the standard and only an inseverability clause would actually necessitate the striking of the entire law (although its sometimes done anyway, when no part of the law is found to be effectively severable) A recent example are the SCOTUS rulings on the Affordable Care Act and the Voting Rights Act, where they only struck portions of the laws As for getting the gun to your house, basically it means that prosecutors would need specific evidence of how you obtained the gun, simply possessing it isn't sufficient evidence to prove a crime
  20. Very Good Point. My interpretation is you can still be convicted for not having a FOID for anything beyond simple possession inside your home, and the case was remanded because striking the entire statute was overkill
  21. There is no statutory limit, so technically as many as you can conceal
  22. I believe he will not need one until he is 18 (or 21, as the laws seem to be trending) and old enough to own firearms in his own right (until then they are technically your guns, he just uses them) but you can get a FOID for him at any age
  23. I don't think Chicago (or any other town) raised their portion of the tax at all, just the county Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  24. Federal law (GCA of 1968, as amended) requires that any interstate transfer of firearms abide by the laws of both states. Since IL law only allows residents to purchase firearms in the adjoining states, that law is essentially granted power of federal law and is enforceable anywhere in the US (as much as I don't like it it's one of few legitimate exercises of the interstate commerce clause) Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
