  1. Just take a ride out to DuPage County to Bass Pro Or the Range at 355 or any gun store and buy them off the rack. Nobody will ask for anything other than your credit card.
  2. That’s a very familiar story. I don’t think there is anyone who understands all the intricacies of the ISP cobweb of incompetence like Molly B. She has helped a LOT of people here and asks nothing for herself. One way people can help is to become supporting members here to allow Molly to continue to do her important work.
  3. We had some first rate soeakers in 2009.
  4. Pfhleger was there picketing the NRA which was not a sponsor of SAFR 2009. We made sure that the Chicago media would not get any photos of him without getting some of Mark The Sign Guy's signs in the same photo . One of the few time the his minions in the Chicago media did not plaster his protest photos all over the paper.
  5. He did show up in a big black SUV with darker out windows that was driven by people did look like they carrying - this was before the FCCA was passed.
  6. What we did get was Fadder Pfleger and 3 of his stooges picketing us! It was pretty funny.
  7. Priceless indeed. A close second was when Plegher picketed us.
  8. SAFR was started because there were people complaining about the trip from Chicago/Cook County was too far to go to Springfield where the legislature is so we started holding a Second Amendment Freedom Rally in downtown Chicago. There is a HUGE amount of coordination that goes into putting on a rally, especially when dealing with a bureaucracy that is antagonistic to your cause. After holding it for 2-3 years it was just not as well attended as IGOLD. There was frequent criticism of the Chicago media that IGOLD was not covered or only got a passing mention because “ It should be covered by the downstate papers”. When we held SAFR in Chicago the media ignored us anyway. It was too easy for the Chicago politicians to ignore us too so we wond up preaching to the choir. SAFR was just not as effective as IGOLD.
  9. We did this a few times, the last time I believe was 2010. We held it at the Thompson Center across from City hall. We even marched around the City Hall/County Building. Otis McDonald was one of your featured speakers. One of the reasons it was dropped IMHO was because there were just as many, if not more, downstate supporters than Chicago supporters.
  10. I just ran across this on the Book of Faces. Anyone know more info? The photo says April but the title says Oct 15.
  11. This is some really good information. Thanks to the devoted member who put this together.
  12. The one in Countryside is in Crook county. You have to add the Preckwinkle Tax per round into the final price. Probally why they have ammo in stock.

  14. I’d love to see him visit a monthly meeting at the Aurora Sportsmen Club in Waterman. THAT would be interesting.
  15. I was a 1911 fan for… well decades…until I gave in and bought a Glock. Most Glocks can best be described as butt ugly compared to a deeply blued or stainless 1911 but they go BANG every time and I’ve never had one that was fussy about what it’s fed. I believe Ray O’Herrons in Downers Grove is a blue label dealer. Im a fan.
  16. Here is the voting record https://ilga.gov/legislation/votehistory.asp?DocNum=562&DocTypeID=HB&LegID=128640&GAID=16&SessionID=110&GA=102&SpecSess=
  17. The one thing that would hurt Mexico would be to restrict money transfers to families in Mexico. Their economy would collapse.
  18. 5. (430 ILCS 65/3) (from Ch. 38, par. 83-3) Private transfer of firearms: a. Any person who is not a federally licensed firearm dealer and who desires to transfer or sell a firearm or firearms to any person who is not a federally licensed firearm dealer shall, before selling or transferring the firearms, contact a federal firearm license dealer under paragraph (1) of subsection (a-15) of this Section to conduct the transfer or the Illinois State Police with the transferee's or purchaser's Firearm Owner's Identification Card number to determine the validity of the transferee's or purchaser's Firearm Owner's Identification Card under State and federal law including the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. Effective date January 1, 2024.Until that date the transferor shall contact the Illinois State Police with the transferee's or purchaser's Firearm Owner's Identification Card number to determine the validity of the card.
  19. The requirement for PTP transfers to go through an FFL does not kick in until January 2024.
  20. IMHO it is not an actual “modernization “ bill. Until or unless there are strict ENFORCEABLE time limits put on the ISP Firearms Unit for the timely processing of FOID and CCL applications, this is just another infringement upon our 2A rights.
  21. The incidents occurred at 11:31PM , 3 AM and 12:41 AM and he’s 16 YOA Shouldn’t his parents be making sure he’s in bed at night?
