  1. Congratulations on moving the what's left of the old USA, Lou. I envy your move, and would join the exodus but my wife is reluctant to move. The moving process itself at our age is what causes it I think. It's certainly not any love for the garbage running this state.
  2. Assault weapon is a term invented by the NY Times. Assault rifle comes from the German 'Sturmgewehr' which means storm rifle, and would require the full automatic ability. AR-15 rifles do not meet this standard. They just look scary to some people. But then again, the opposition has always played fast and loose with the language, haven't they?
  3. If Jack Ryan had been a 'D', the story would have garnered him votes. Adding to his credentials, in a way.
  4. I've read that was the case in both the USSR and Cuba. Control the food, control the population.
  5. 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."
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. Good, better FN than that other company that hails from this state.
  10. It figures, just in time for me to have to renew my FOID card. IL, where freedom goes to die.
  11. 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.

  13. Just renewed, it got away from me. I noticed I didn't have the Supporting Members Team under my screen name.
  14. Remember, ol' Kwame is "just getting started" according to his campaign ads. Getting started at what is still to be determined. I'm anticipating more of the same, only the names have been shifted around.
  15. I think I'd rather see Madigan and Cullerton in orange jumpsuits than win the lottery. Not that I play the lottery, it's a tax on people who are bad at math. But the thought gives me "a shiver up my legs" ala Chris Mathews. LOL They belong in the IL gov wing at Terre Haute.
  16. If it's 60 days, that would be the 15th if my math is correct.
  17. I have a couple I'd like to buy, but I'm waiting for the law to go into effect. It would be just my luck that I buy a knife and he pulls a veto out of thin air. Then I would be out the money, and have an illegal item all of a sudden. I can wait. Also, imagine the confusion in other states when we have to send them a FOID copy to buy a knife.
  18. Welcome to August 1st, and still no signature. Well, in two weeks or so it won't matter.
  19. I wish he'd sign the bill already. I've already found a knife or two I'd like to buy. I guess we'll have to wait until August 16th when it becomes law automatically.
  20. I posted in the fastest turnaround thread, but it should go here too. Applied May 4th, went Active June 5th, in my mailbox today, June 7th. So, 31 days until Active, 33 days total. I never thought I would see the day, but here it is. I did submit the prints in case anybody is keeping track. I also applied for Utah, but from what I see here and there, they're swamped with applications so it may take a while yet. Thanks to all that made it possible.
  21. Congratulations to all who have received their license. I was beginning to think I'd never see this day.
  22. Did you just hear a couple of pops? Those were ex-mayor Daley and Phather Pflager's heads exploding. I am so glad to see this!! Merry Christmas ILL citizens. Sent from my SCH-I510 using Tapatalk 2
