  1. ok so buying a gun wasn't a crime, because being under indictment is not being convicted of a crime. Good, good. I'm with you there. He did however lie on the 4473 when answering 21 B. So my question there is, what type of crime is lying on the 4473 and is it enough to prohibit him from owning a firearm now? I would assume even after the judge ruled that it's not illegal to own a firearm while under indictment, that the crime of lying on the 4473 still stands. My last question, and probably the most relevant, was the guy ultimately convicted of the felonies he was indicted for and now cannot own a firearm anyway?
  2. That has to do with obtaining an IL non-resident license to carry a firearm. It has nothing to do with passing through the state, remaining in your vehicle while possessing a license to carry a firearm from your home state and having said firearm on or about your person.
  3. I've held a Utah non-resident license to carry for several years now. My favorite thing to do is to hand that one over for anything that doesn't specifically require identification or licensing issued by the state of IL. People get super confused and ask me if it's an actual ID and "fake" since it clearly says UTAH at the top but has an IL address. My favorite was a traffic stop in Indiana where they asked if I was armed and to which I naturally replied "Of course". So they asked for my license to carry and I handed them the Utah license which was right next to the IL license. Anyway my point there was how funny it was that they had to actually call Utah to verify my license was valid.
  4. Just those three? or are there more? To be honest this sounds like a good thing, gun owners steadily complain that we don't need new laws and that we need the existing laws enforced so I hope this gains momentum though I don't know how you measure enforcement of a law or how you measure the success of it unless it's simply a measure of arrets, citations, and forfeitures or whatever penalties are allowed under the laws.
  5. The whole thing is weird and dangerous territory to me. If someone has not committed a crime that bars them from owning and possessing firearms how do you deny them the right to carry the firearm? At the same time if none of the below constitutes a crime serious enough to revoke your right to own a firearm, how do you deny them a license to carry? But then...over here in IL was the Highland Park shooter legally allowed to own a firearm? Wasn't he at least found to be making statements that would had NY deny him the license to carry? I realize different states but as a basis for comparison the guy had a FOID and went out and shot up a parade. Or was I imagining that? I can't keep all the trash in the world straight anymore.
  6. Just close the door, call the police and tell them someone is impersonating a federal agent and asking to come into your home and "see your guns". I think a wave of these videos will make the evening news. Good times will be had by most.
  7. I can tell you for a fact that Palmetto State Armory will not ship magazines over 10 rounds to anywhere in Cook county. They stole the mag out of my pistol because it was a 15 round magazine. Their customer service linked me to a section on their website that said they were going to steal my magazine as though that somehow made it ok and then when I asked to escalate the matter they stopped responding to my emails.
  8. Right? Nobody wants to be on the tail end of "fornicate around and find out".
  9. I think using a signal jammer is illegal period, of course I'm not a lawyer.
  10. Did I read in this garbage that pistols over 50 oz are banned? That would mean a Desert Eagle is an assault weapon, probably doubly so if it's in .50 AE right? I don't have any guns but if I did, I would be super cautious about taking them to the range or out of the house or even carrying a pistol anymore. It pretty much sounds like most modern firearms are assault weapons under this. No?
  11. I live in Cook County so that works for me. I tend to forget that there are other counties and that people live in them or go to them for anything.
  12. It's that last part that seems to be the problem. As long as there's an option to drop the charges it's going to be a possibility for some state's attorney who sees this as "just" lying on a form, or considers this a "victimless crime".
  13. I bought shot shells at Walmart a few weeks ago and used my new FOID. This must be an IL Walmart problem because Indiana doesn’t care
  14. Cash grab, taking advantage of the ill-informed or otherwise stupid.
  15. I thought possession of a firearm was not reasonable suspicion of a crime? I also thought reefer was “legal” now?
  16. What's in our safes is one issue, what's already on the shelves at gun stores is another. Are manufacturers going to take back their inventory so they can serials slides and uppers?
  17. Given they're trying to get us to believe an upper should be considered the firearm as well what would the alternative be?
  18. Sounds like that makes sense and you can just hand over the firearm as it's a loan and you don't have to do anything. Glad I was wrong about that.
