    This is not gonna work. So you turn it into a bolt action - yer still in possession of all those illegal attachments, including the complete lower which has the serial number. Pistol grip, handguards, threaded barrel, flash hider, collapsible buttstock, etc, all require a disclosure affidavit or yer still breaking the law.


    It's a good idea but it won't make you legal.




    (3) "Assault weapon attachment" means any device capable
    of being attached to a firearm that is specifically designed
    for making or converting a firearm into any of the firearms
    listed in paragraph (1) of this subsection (a).


    How is a complete lower an attachment?

    You would be still required to register your "assault weapon attachment" parts, but not firearms that are not semi-automatic.

    Remember, this information is coming from Washington Gun Law who is a lawyer.

  2. Hey guys,


    Three Cook County Sheriffs deputies showed up at my door last week and left a notice that my FOID is REVOKED and I need to surrender it. They came in an unmarked SUV with regular IL plates. I called IL State Police and they said my FOID and CCL are both valid. I tried calling the Cook County Sheriffs office but nobody can give me an answer why and who sent them at my house. Since then nobody tried to call me, nobody came to my house to look for me or leave another notice or letter. Its been a week so far. I reported this to my local PD. Maybe someone from State Police will read this and maybe can get me some answers. I called the Sherifs office again but they said if my FOID is valid that "I should not worry about this so much".


    I still don't have answers to some questions:


    - Why Cook County Sherif's is trying to illegally confiscate my FOID? with a "fake" letter.

    - FOID issue and revocation is State Police matter, not Cook County. I dont even live in Cook County

    - I know that if a FOID is revoked, State Police is the one that sends the letters and nobody else.

    - The number on the notice is impossible to reach. Does not even ring, Goes straight to voicemail.

    - If they needed some information about a case or maybe a Ffirearms transfer, why nobody has tried to reach me since?

    - The investigator on the notice does work in Cook County Sheriffs dept, but they have no idea what hes working on. They never tried to get me in touch with him. They did not even asked for my number.


    Has anyone heard a similar crazy story like this? Please let me know what you think. I am attaching the notice so you can see it for yourselves.

    Tell them to go to heck, not their job.


    ISP should come get it or send you a letter, not Cook County...


    Cook County spends too much time micro policing non-criminals...

  3. § 8-24-020 Sale or possession of deadly weapons


    No person shall carry concealed on or about his person a dagger, any knife with a blade more than two and one-half inches in length, or other dangerous weapon. Provided, however, that this provision shall not apply to the following officers while engaged in the discharge of their official duties: sheriffs, peace officers, and corrections officers; nor to the following employees or agents while engaged in the discharge of the duties of their employment: conductors, baggagemen, messengers, drivers, watchmen, special agents and policemen employed by railroads or express companies; nor to persons lawfully summoned by an officer to assist in making arrests or preserving the peace, while so engaged in assisting such officer.


    Unless the enhanced penalty imposed by subsection 8-4-350( b )( 3 ) or subsection 8-4-355( b )( 3 ) of this Code applies, any person violating this section shall be fined $200.00 for each offense, or shall be punished by imprisonment for a period not to exceed six months, or by both such fine and imprisonment.


    Any weapons used in violation of this section shall be forfeited to the city.




    So would state law superseded this Chicago nonsense?


    Would suck to lose a Benchmade to crooks in Chicago.

  4. Should keep an eye on this case.


    Issue: (1) Whether the Second Amendment secures a right to carry handguns outside the home for self-defense; and (2) whether state officials violate the Second Amendment by requiring that individuals wishing to exercise their right to carry a handgun for self-defense first prove a “justifiable need” for doing so.



  5. What would happen if the court sided with the plaintiff and then NY simply raised all fees to $340?


    I'm assuming a second lawsuit but that could ruin many gun owners when they get hit with a 34x increase in permit costs.


    From this case, "the City can charge a nominal fee to defray

    costs", which is how other courts have ruled.


    Only fees can only be as much as to cover the cost of the program.

  6. I think once the concealed carry law is passed and being used, we need to go after the FOID. I douby very much if it is defensible.


    The Illinois Supreme Court has ruled that non residents in illinois do not haver to have a FOID to possess firearms and ammo while in Illinois:




    wait a minute. Where is the equality under the law in that? Why are Illinois residents different from all other Americans?


    Bud, do you have that case?
