  1. Just sent donation for the update via paypal. Thanks for all you guys do!
  2. It's not meaningless, but it doesn't mean what they most likely think it means. You can carry and store in your vehicle. Period. Full stop. You can carry in the immediate vicinity of your vehicle for the purpose of storing the gun in the trunk. Outside of that, you cannot carry anywhere on the premises. You cannot carry while walking your dog through the parking lot of the school. You cannot carry while getting out of the car to go have a conversation with one of the other parents in the parking lot. FCCA specifically states that you can store in the glove compartment or console. Law states in a locked container inside the vehicle or in a container concealed from view inside a locked vehicle.

  3. You can CCW anywhere in a forest preserve so long as it is not Cook County Forest Preserve District. Need not be on a path. Within Cook Coumty Forest Preserves, one could argue that the bike paths are public right of way, and therefore you can carry on the paths. But beware, this has not been tested, and you know how much opinions are worth... Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. True, it is grounds for objection by ISP, not necessarily grounds for rejecting the application. Fingers moving faster than my brain today.
  5. The answer to your question depends on a number of factors. Chief among them is how long since the conviction? Also, were you ordered to attend any form of substance abuse program. Not sure about the FOID, but for a FCCL, 5 or more arrests for any reason in the last 7 years is an automatic disqualification. While one should not be an issue, and a non-violent misdemeanor should not either, if local or county law enforcement try to turn it into an issue of substance abuse, you may be dealing with an objection. It is entirely possible that this is not regarded as an issue. The felony AUUW conviction would most certainly be a problem, so having it vacated and expunged will certainly move you in the right direction. Hopefully you can get everything on your record expunged. I wish you the best of luck!
  6. Hi and welcome to our site. Very sorry to hear about this ordeal, as this is the first time I have heard of such action being taken, but I have wondered if they were going to do something like this. Depending on how many licensees are in the State of New Mexico and other states that have now been removed from "substantially similar", I wonder if this has the makings of a class action suit. After all, you went through the required 16 hours of training, paid the state the $150 required to obtain a license for 5 years, and now through no fault or action of your own, they have revoked that license less than a year later. Just food for thought...
  7. Long story short, the FOID is the least of your problems. A felony conviction is a federal ban on ownership or possession of a firearm. There are exceptions, in cases of expungements and rights restoration by the courts, but these are the exception by a mile. I know 2008 seems a long time ago, but that was the most recent of several, and all of them would need to be removed from your record, and that would just be the first step in the process. Add in a domestic battery, even if it was 6 years ago, and a history of drug abuse, and you have a very long and uncertain road ahead of you to getting your 2A rights restored. Assuming all of your convictions were state convictions, and within the state of Illinois, and assuming you are successful at getting your rights restored at the state level, you will still need to clear many of the same hurdles at the federal level. Sorry if this is not the news you expected to hear, but these are some of the very laws we point to when antis try to tell us we don't have enough laws to keep firearms out of the hands of dangerous individuals.
  8. I received the same email from Midwest today. Better late than never! I will reward their decision with an order. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  9. When they get rid of the FOID card... Not sure where you got that notion from, but what was actually said was that, if your FOID gets reissued through this process, your old FOID is still ok for the purpose of posession and use of firearms. You will not be able to purchase a firearm on the old FOID, you will need to wait for the new one to arrive.
  10. One speeding ticket will have NO impact on your FOID application. Illinois is bad in many ways, but not THAT bad.
  11. Hold on a sec...are you saying your FOID has been revoked and you're wondering if it could be because of the speeding ticket? Or are you saying that you got a speeding ticket and are worried that you could get your FOID revoked as a result?
  12. I believe NRA T&E would disagree with your assessment. If prior credit is bring claimed, it doesn't matter when it was completed or who taught it. It's 8 hours prior verified and 8 CCL hours taught. NRA Basic Pistol is not concealed carry curriculum. It is an approved replacement for part of the 16 hrs requirement. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Tapatalk +1 I see CLIC as a second 8 hour curriculum. I do not recall BP being part of CLIC, nor do I recall seeing a curriculum ID issued to Basic Pistol.
  13. I have complete faith in you and the gang, Sidewinder. I look forward to teaching from your framework.
