  1. https://ilga.gov/legislation/publicacts/102/PDF/102-1116.pdf You are looking for the term 'endorsement' not registration. (hhh) Information submitted to the Department of State Police in an affidavit or application for an assault weapon endorsement, assault weapon attachment endorsement, .50 caliber rifle endorsement, or .50 caliber cartridge endorsement under the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. (b) The Illinois State Police shall adopt rules in accordance with this Section for the electronic submission of an endorsement affidavit. (3) the make, model, caliber, and serial number of the .50 caliber rifle or assault weapon or assault weapons listed in paragraphs (J), (K), and (L) of subdivision (1) of subsection (a) of this Section possessed by the affiant prior to the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly and any assault weapons identified and published by the Illinois State Police pursuant to this subdivision (3). No later than October 1, 2023, and every October 1 thereafter, the Illinois State Police shall, via rulemaking, identify, publish, and make available on its website, the list of assault weapons subject to an endorsement affidavit under this subsection (d). The list shall identify, but is not limited to, the copies, duplicates, variants, and altered facsimiles of the assault weapons identified in paragraphs (J), (K), and (L) of subdivision (1) of subsection (a) of this Section and shall be consistent with the definition of "assault weapon" identified in this Section. The Illinois StatePolice may adopt emergency rulemaking in accordance with Section 5-45 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act. The adoption of emergency rules authorized by Section 5-45 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act and this paragraph is deemed to be necessary for the public interest, safety, and welfare. The affidavit form shall include the following statement printed in bold type: "Warning: Entering false information on this form is punishable as perjury under Section 32-2 of the Criminal Code of 2012. Entering false information on this form is a violation of the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act."
  2. After watching the Illinois politicians, Colorado decided they would do this
  3. I think your percentage may be a little high based on what I seen in our area. I would guess at the height of it, 70% compliance and that was early on when people wasn't sure what was gong on. It quickly dropped to a below 50%.
  4. Part of Jabba the Hut's problem is he has selectively decided which laws to enforce and this is well documented. As such, they could turn right around and use his direct defiance of enforcing laws against him.
  5. You have to remember filing a lawsuit like this isn't easy. The brief you file, to my understanding, is limited to 30 pages or less (there are some workarounds, but I am not a lawyer). That sounds like a lot, but with all the issues in this bill, you will be just scratching the surface of those in 30 pages. Yet, your brief setups your case and has to show to the court that you have a case. So as much as we want a suit filed yesterday, it is important for the suits that are being filed to take the time to get them well prepared and then filed. For most of us, nothing changes for 90 days, except we can no longer buy banned firearms or magazines. I would much rather those involved take a few days and get the best argument for the suit put together than rush in and file a poorly written brief and create issues. My guess is there may be a flood of suits coming.
  6. If my reading and understanding is correct, the parts that are effective immediately mostly effect FFL (no selling 'assault' weapons and 'large' capacity mags. Then 90 days from signing parts come into play and as the year continues on other parts phase in till January 1st when the bill is in full affect.
  7. Add another $100 to the fund, just got my confirmation receipt.
  8. The nice thing, hopefully in the coming weeks the courts step in and we won't have to debate if we are being felons or not. I was asked today at work how this is going to help stop crime? I responded back with the answer "tell me what criminal follows the law? This law only affects law-abiding people, does nothing to criminals."
  9. No, you are wrong. A fewl of my friends have G19s with threaded barrels that they carry. Just because you have the 15 round magazine doesn't make it legal. They will have to switch out the barrel.
  10. That is incorrect assumption. You need to read the Assault Weapon definition and see if your pistol meets any of the requirements to be considered an assault weapon. For example if you have a threaded barrel on your pistol, that firearm is now banned. (C) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine or that may be readily modified to accept a detachable magazine, if the firearm has one or more of the following: (i) a threaded barrel; (ii) a second pistol grip or another feature capable of functioning as a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand; (iii) a shroud attached to the barrel or that partially or completely encircles the barrel, allowing the bearer to hold the firearm with the non-trigger hand without being burned, but excluding a slide that encloses the barrel; (iv) a flash suppressor; (v) the capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip; or (vi) a buffer tube, arm brace, or other part that protrudes horizontally behind the pistol grip and is designed or redesigned to allow or facilitate a firearm to be fired from the shoulder.
  11. You have to remember there are other Federal cases that could have a significant impact on what is put in place. So, it may not be as long as you think.
  12. Is there any chance that the firearm retailers would be able to sue the State when the law is found illegal and they suffered harm by it?
  13. Legislative intent has been used in past court cases, will it be used in court cases surrounding this topic will depend on the approach of the legal team and the questions that have to be addressed.
  14. We won't know until the final bill is passed by the House or if there are any changes that the Senate then must confirm. So, right now everything is a waiting game. Any answer is speculation/based on a bill that may or may not go into law. Until the final bill is passed and we have the confirmed/passed wording of that bill all we can do is sit back and wait.
  15. The answer is maybe. We won't know till whatever bill is passed. Then at that time we will get a little better guidance and then it will depend on what the courts do. The courts could block the whole bill, block parts of the bill, could do nothing. So there are lots of unknowns and at this time everything is speculation, with plans being made for multiple contingencies.
  16. I guess we will have to just defend ourselves with our dusters, but they probably made those illegal to.
  17. They are lined up and ready to start as soon as order 66 is given
  18. After reading the list, I believe this is the only thing I will be allowed to carry and conceal or take to the range.
  19. Thank you. Hard to keep up with Illinois political games.
  20. Pulled it off the IL GOV website, that is why I'm confused and was asking.
  21. From what I read it is 10 rounds or did I miss something? Sec. 24-1.10. Manufacture, delivery, or sale of large 11 capacity ammunition feeding devices. 12 (a) In this Section: 13 "Large capacity ammunition feeding device" means: 14 (1) a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar 15 device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily 16 restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of 17 ammunition; or
