  1. Most of what Illinois does with guns are not legal, but it take years to fight anything in the courts. Sadly, it seems more often than not, the courts decide to punt it down the road.
  2. (Gray News) - Attorney General Merrick Garland and other Department of Justice leaders will hold a press conference Monday afternoon to discuss a national security matter. According to media reports, they will be discussing ”alleged criminal activity by a nation-state actor in the U.S.” The Department of Justice didn’t clarify the matter in its brief statement.
  3. Here are some links: First forcible Felony: https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/fulltext.asp?DocName=072000050K2-8 Definition of a robbery (class 2 felony, does not include vehicle): https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/fulltext.asp?DocName=072000050K18-1#:~:text=A person commits robbery when,the imminent use of force. Definition of vehicular carjacking (class 1 felony): https://ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/fulltext.asp?DocName=072000050K18-3 Definition of vehicular aggravated carjacking (class X felony): https://ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/fulltext.asp?DocName=072000050K18-4 Now all the links above provide to show there isn't a clear answer without more details. You statement doesn't have an 'armed thug' and you didn't list anything making it an aggravated carjacking (Class X felony). So, are you justified to use deadly force just because a person is wanting to take your property? Have you demonstrated that you are in fear of greatly bodily harm or death? Now, your scenario and the answers changes when you start involving a weapon, multiple attackers, age, disability, are there kids in the car, etc. As Jeffrey pointed out, why wasn't driving away an option? Your best bet in any situation is to try to avoid it from the onset, which i know not always possible. (FYI, I'm not a lawyer.)
  4. Member rank, if you place your mouse over it, it will show your rank on a 24pt scale.
  5. I just checked and was able to log in like normal, so I'm not much help.
  6. Maybe I missed (if so can you point it out), but i didn't see anything in there about when a person is delayed, just denied. Now I would of thought already that denied request were being reported to law enforcement to investigate and charge accordingly. Delayed reports would be an issue in my book since they occur commonly and my assumption is that most end up reporting back clear to purchase.
  7. I haven't seen any signs supporting Pritzker. Instead I have seen these signs all over.
  8. The summary, licensed carry arrested in another State after stopping crime. The individual is challenging the arrest. The case will most likely be made that none of the other Constitutional rights stop at a State border, but are valid anywhere in the US.
  9. So, you have to be found guilty of a crime before they can take your rights away, what a novel approach.
  10. Everything I have researched on Bailey shows he is much stronger 2A candidate than Jabba the Hut has ever been.
  11. So with the State filing appeal, does this mean this could end back up in front of Illinois Supreme Court and possibly force them to finally deal with the FOID Act?
