Call to All Gun Owners for Major Push Back on Thursday, May 27th!


Recommended Posts

Urgent Notice:

The anti-gun groups are calling for a “digital day of action” on Thursday, May 27th, to try to get the FIX the FOID bill passed before end of legislative session. This outrageous bill, HB1091, demands fingerprints for gun owners, bans private transfer of firearms among law-abiding citizens, cuts the 10 yr license to 5 years, all which could raise the cost of a FOID card to $50 or more.

Call your State Representative immediately and demand they vote NO on HB1091.

There is a renewed push for HB1092 which has passed out of the House and is now up in the Senate. This bill removes hard fought Constitutional protections negotiated in the Firearm Restraining Order Act and weaponizes firearm restraining orders against Illinois gun owners by expanding the definition of who can request these orders.

Call your State Senator immediately and demand they vote NO on HB1092 and SB1165.

Not getting the negative attention it deserves, SB1165 “FOID Modernization” is poised to rear its ugly head again.

Promoted as a way to bring the FOID Act into the 21st Century this bill, in its current form, is simply a more modern version of the delays and fees that have turned the FOID Card into gun control piracy. No one, NO ONE, claiming to support the Second Amendment in Illinois should support this bill.

> Creates a politically slanted review board (appointed by Gov. Pritzker) who will have the ultimate say in FOID card appeals, no clear and convincing evidence necessary.

> Introduces fingerprints for obtaining a FOID card – although voluntary at this time, we know the high probability of that becoming required later on.

> Fees for the “automatic renewal” FOID card and its renewals under this act are not defined. The agency receiving the fees will be in control of determining the amounts.

Please call you State Senator AND co-sponsors Sen. Terri Bryant and Sen. Don DeWitte immediately to inform them of your opposition to this legislation. Explain to them, and to your own State Senator, the glaring problems with this bill.

Focused on their own arguments against voter id laws' on both HB1091 and SB1185, and how both will price the executuin of a Constitutional right out of the ability of certain, impoverished communities. That and the blatant Unconstitutionality of both, as well as SB1185 hidden attempt to make the FOID MAY issue, from SHALL issue.


On HB1092, I talked about the negotiated agreement, to make it a model for red flag laws, which is EXACTLY why it wasn't challenged in court yet. AND, how the changes to the existing law are right out of the anti-gun groups verbiage, meant to weaponize red flag laws by extending the pool of those that can file for them, to those who no longer have legal standing to do so, or knowledge permanent to the reason for a red flag law. I then said, making these changes will guarantee multiple court challenges, and with the recent SCOTUS ruling, could easily see the scrapping of the entire red flag law.
