  1. Wasn't the Volcanic a lever-action? Since its not semiautomatic it wouldn't need to registered regardless of magazine size I believe.
  2. Oh yeah the choice of domain names is a whole other thing that probably should have been reviewed as well
  3. Somewhat OT but who proofread that card before printing? The first item isn't even a valid URL, the Wordpress and Ning URLs shouldn't have www in front of them (Wordpress and Ning will sanitize the link so it works though) and generally using www isn't considered best practice anymore, in fact most people of my generation would call it a "Boomer thing" to use it at all.
  4. I think it has to be a Modest Proposal, because it simply couldn't work. If we made a state out of each neighborhood in DC and then passed the proposed amendments, that would set the minimum district size for the House as the population of the smallest neighborhood. I can't find population stats for individual neighborhoods, but if we take the ward with the smallest population (Ward 7, population 77,456) and assume that population is divided equally among its 31 neighborhoods that means a House representative can represent no more than about 2500 people, which would mean the House would need to have 136,000 members to ensure equal-sized districts nationwide. It would also set a similar minimum size for their proportional Senate, assuming each state has to have at least 1 Senator it would mean a 136,000-person Senate as well.
  5. The presence of a third hole (for the auto sear pin) is how the ATF differentiates a semiautomatic AR-15 from an automatic M16. (so if you drill it, you don't want to tell anyone)
  6. I believe the ATF interpretation is any use in the last 12 months makes you a current "user," after 12 months you are clear again.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. I would hope if his local FFL is a plaintiff they would be aware of that and proceed accordingly.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. I wouldn't expect Gander to be using the gun store CC code since (I assume) most of their business is non-gun.
  22. We already have that, there are plenty of products that are high in CBD (which doesn't get you high) but contain almost no THC (which does get you high)
  23. They must changed that policy at some point and would just ask me for ID right away when I bought ammo, then when I show an IL ID ask for the FOID. As such it should come as no surprise they won't sell mags to IL residents. I honestly don't think I've bought ammo there since moving to IN 3 years ago so I don't know if they still did ammo that way too.
  24. When I lived in Cook County elections for offices like state rep, state senator, mayor, village trustee, etc were more often than not uncontested. Even US representative might as well have been, the republican candidate typically received little to no support or funding from the party and basically just there because no one else wanted their name on the ballot.
  25. I'm pretty sure all the local AWBs have LEO carve outs as well, so those would all be toast too.
