  1. If Jack Ryan had been a 'D', the story would have garnered him votes. Adding to his credentials, in a way.
  2. I've read that was the case in both the USSR and Cuba. Control the food, control the population.
  3. SN: Jabba450 Pols quoting 'statistics' always bring to mind the old quote. "Lies, damn lies, and statistics". If one of them came right out and said "we want to ban all guns" other than Feinstein, it would be the rare occasion of a pol actually speaking the truth. The other old saying nails it. "You can tell they're lying since their lips are moving."
  4. So to update this, I just received a letter from ISP telling me I have the later date, rather than May of this year for expiration. The same letter talks about applying for renewal earlier to make sure it goes through. When I received my renewal of my CCL, they sent me a new FOID, with the same number as the CCL, and it came right after the CCL came in the mail. So, it looks like the card was extended to match the CCL expiration date per the ISP web site and this letter I just received from ISP. I'll check with my LGS to see how he has handled others with the same issue. I'm sure I can't be the only one.
  5. If he's convicted, perhaps he could go to the IL Governor's wing at Terre Haute. George Ryan's former cell might be available. Or maybe Blago's cell in Colorado?
  6. My FOID shows me expiring May 2022. When I logged into the ISP site, the expiration date is shown as the same as my CCL, in 2024. Should be interesting if I try to buy a gun later this year, or ammo online. I know better than to even try to contact the ISP via phone, so I guess I live with it until something comes up requiring a seller to check the ISP site. What a crazy way to do things.
  7. Good, better FN than that other company that hails from this state.
  8. It figures, just in time for me to have to renew my FOID card. IL, where freedom goes to die.
  9. Don't let the door hit you, etc. The definitive RINO, a poor man's Mittens.
  10. Of course it's more bad news from this bad news state. One way around it is to stamp a number on any ghost guns you might have / or built. "This one is 'OU812', officer. Honest." It's still rotten news if it passes. There are no federal laws against building your own guns, just selling them as a business. You can even build one, then decide later to sell it, as long as you're not in the business of selling firearms. Of course with the way of the world these days, that can change at a moment's notice.
  11. I couldn't find the voters for this bill. I was curious which IL R's turned their coats for this bill. I searched the IL sites, but came up empty. Does anybody know the link?
  12. Yep, you can use the Dillon 550C as a single stage if you like, until you get more familiar with the process. The toolhead system gives you a lot of versatility.
  13. I guess I missed the compromise. Honest question, what did ISRA compromise on with the opposition? Just a question, nothing else. I get the same emails each Thursday, but perhaps I missed something. The compromise lays in ISRA neutrality on the FOID modernization bill. The bill was less severe than the Fix the FOID proposal, but still added additional limitations to the current law the particulars of which can be seen in a review of this forum. Only the ISRA can say why they chose to give tacit support to a Bill that adds additional controls over existing law. If anyone read the Thursday ISRA email message without knowing what transpired on May 31st. they could miss the root of the problem. We are just fortunate that the clock ran out ending the matter until the veto session in the fall. Regardless the bill is not dead and now carries the weight of ISRA tacit approval. I understand, I didn't realize that happened. Thanks for the clarity. It's not good news as you said. I don't have an answer, other than to vote with our feet. We're running out of areas to go to, though. The infection is spreading.

  15. Just renewed, it got away from me. I noticed I didn't have the Supporting Members Team under my screen name.
