  1. So is a 15-round Glock magazine legal to carry? I understand pistol magazines 15 round or less are legal. Glock magazines, along with several other brands, are also used in rifles (PCC). Does the 15-round Glock magazine count as a pistol magazine or a rifle magazine?
  2. I will follow my grandfather's advice and not speak ill of the dead. He taught me if I have nothing nice to say about the dead, then say nothing.
  3. So, after watching the video, is my understanding correct that the only way you can register items is via their portal? For example, my father, who doesn't use a computer, he request a paper copy for his FOID and sends that end, which he recently did. So, since he doesn't use a computer, does that mean he doesn't have to register any items that he might have since he doesn't have the ability to do it? (Mom took care of everything on the computer until she passed, he had no idea what was on their computer or even how to use email and doesn't text from his phone.) How is ISP setup to handle people like this that they are potentially turning into criminals?
  4. I take this as a good sign that SCOTUS might be getting tired of all the playing games with people's rights.
  5. Whatever it takes to keep my firearms from having to be registered.
  6. I have already made arrangements to have my 'registerable' items moved across the State line and stored for me. The only thing I haven't figured out yet, is how to get my wife moved across the State line so this would become a non-issue.
  7. It is nice and they are former Illinois residents so they understand the madness over here.
  8. So reading the post, the magic item is the fingerprints. Doesn't ISP already run daily checks on FOID card holders to make sure they are still eligible? If they have a daily check ran on you and your fingerprints are on file, why is there a need to buy a firearm to have the FOID date extended? IF they aren't obtaining all the information they need with the daily check and fingerprints then why do they do them if they need the FTIP to figure out if you are eligible or not? “The automatic renewal of a FOID card will expedite the process for many card holders while still ensuring people who are prohibited under the FOID Act do not have legal access to a card,” said ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly. “Automatic renewal will also allow staff to focus on Clear and Present Danger reports, Firearm Restraining Orders, as well as FOID correlations and enforcement.” ISP will check the fingerprints against all available State and local criminal history record information files. https://www.commercial-news.com/news/state_news/isp-to-renew-foid-cards-automatically-for-some/article_247a05e6-8880-11ed-88d7-734e81597100.html
  9. My understanding, if you purchase a firearm, your FOID is renewed/extended at no cost to the individual? My second question is how does this not qualify for unequal treatment for those that have to renew the FOID card and pay to have it renewed because they didn't purchase a firearm? No fee was added to the gun purchase, yet the individual was given a renewal at no charge. The individual that hasn't purchased a firearm is being charged a fee for the same service.
  10. Having a plan is a good thing. I know I have family and friends that are just across the State line that have volunteered space in their gun safes until this whole mess passes. Still not giving up hope that this is resolved before anything else goes into effect.
  11. You make choices every day on what is right and what is wrong and how much risk you will assume. If you study the Nuremberg trials the common defense was I was doing what I was told/ordered (became known as the Nuremberg defense/Superior Orders defense)to do. Just because you are ordered to do something, if it isn't legal, then you don't have to follow it. Does it mean that you will be free from consequences? Nope, as argued in the trial those soldiers/officers/defendants would of faced penalties by their superiors/government at the time if they hadn't followed the orders. Yet, the court still ruled the defendants were wrong for following the orders. We all make choices and each person will have to decide.
  12. Why would the key issue be waived by the plaintiff? I thought that was the whole reason this was going through court?
  13. So they didn't rule if it was a violation of the 2nd Amendment?
  14. Why the original cert? Why not just the cert showing you had taken the refresher? I don't even know where my original cert is at. Sure it is filed somewhere. Last time I renewed it was just the refresher cert.
  15. I find it interesting that Congress, one of the most unethical groups we know, likes to talk about ethics.
  16. Cards no longer have the dates. Will they send new cards post renewal, I think we are waiting to see. Right now, everyone is just getting the new combined FOID/CCL card no dates. You buy a firearm you will get an email saying your FOID card has been renewed (or something to that effect) from ISP. So, your 10 year date is shifting based on purchases. Your CCL date is consistent, but again not listed on any card. Since your card is 5 years away, I wouldn't worry to much about. My guess is by that time the State will have come up with something else they will want to implement. Probably microchips in your forehead or hand that requires scanning.
  17. Did I miss the link to the no comply patches?
  18. BY the time I was able to see the email alerts, the meeting was already done. Just got to love that government transparency.
  19. I disagree, the State/government should not require any training/special requirements to exercise a RIGHT. Yes, knowledge use to be based down, but there are simply four rules that have to be followed for safe gun handling: 1) Treat all firearms as if they are loaded 2) Know you target and what is beyond your target 3) Never point a firearm at anything you don't want to destroy 4) Keep your finger off the trigger till you are ready to fire Those rules are covered in every firearm manual that comes with a firearm that I have purchased. As adults, you need to take responsibility for your level of training. If you don't have enough knowledge, then you need to get further training. It isn't up to the government to tell you what training to get to exercise your RIGHT. Realizing, that if you improperly exercise your RIGHT, you will be held accountable.
  20. Not sure what it means, but you can find it referenced here. https://isp.illinois.gov/FoidCardReviewBoard My FOID Card was revoked or my application was denied. How do I appeal this decision? To begin the process of obtaining relief from firearm prohibitions, you must first contact the Illinois State Police to determine which venue has jurisdiction over your denial or revocation. Please contact the ISP at ISP.FRCU@illinois.gov to start the process. They will review your FOID Card Account to determine who has jurisdiction to assist you. If the FOID Card Review Board has jurisdiction over your petition, a member of the Board’s staff will contact you to explain what documentation is needed.
