I submitted an inquiry asking for a link to the emergency rules or amended rules allowing for the tracking of caliber for ammo purchases.

 

There isn't a link because emergency/amended rules have not been submitted for approval. 

 

Today ISP updated the site to only track .50 cal ammo purchases.

NICE  Thank you 

 

Now maybe we need to ask why an approval  to verify the validity of a FOID card for a firearm transfer requires  make, model, serial number and caliber.  

 

Sounds like more overreach to me and a registration.  Doesn't this violate FOPA ??

Now that’s some mighty fine team work!
From a Facebook post, to a Guardins of liberty post, to an Illinois Carry post, To Molly calling someone’s BS.

 

Remember boys and girls, if you see something, say something! 😁

As always... thank you Molly and Illinois Carry.

 

This is probably a good time to encourage all members stopping by to read this to become part of the Supporting Team for a measly $25 dollars a year.

 

You can't hardly spend $25 in a better way anywhere for anything.

 

I'm just an old liberal who supports Illinois Carry.

You can do it, too. And you should.

 

Cheers,

Tim

It is well worth the $25 and more for all the work this group does.

Can you get them to rephrase their text? It's my understanding, and probably many of us have the same understanding, that .50 AE is not banned and I have concerns that they're either going to track that OR because of this a gun shop will not sell me Desert Eagle food. I don't want my bird to starve.

   I have that same thought, only thinking of S&W 500 Magnum.  I don't have one just curious about that caliber.  I really don't have one because I now live in the free state of Indiana where I can have pretty much whatever I can afford.   Jim.

   I just thought of a couple other big bore rifle calibers, very rare in the states but possible.  I am talking about those few people that hunt big game in Africa, 500 Nitro Express, 577 Nitro express and the 505 Gibbs.  My understanding, these are pretty much limited to double rifle's and not ammo you will find at Rural King but will these be illegal also.   Jim.

I have yet to poke this bear at the particular place where I work, but apparently ammunition checks via the public FOID portal are now being used; prior in-person verification was just visual  I have yet to see this for myself (off work several days), but is it correct that there is still a drop down box to select the specific caliber when validating the FOID card for ammunition purchases?  I just heard of this last night from a co-worker and this was after initially seeing this post several days ago first.

 

After reading this, it seems like that is no longer the case.  I have been in other conversation with other dealers that leads me to believe that there was some email communication to dealers yesterday or today regarding this, so I am just not sure what is current or where it is headed.

A "feature" whether intended or not,  of the "new" FOID cards without an expiration date is that ammunition vendors are forced to confirm that the card is valid and unexpired with the issuing authority. Similarly, because of the automatic 10 year extension, any entity checking the  validity of your FOID knows when you purchased your last firearm, especially if it expires more than 10 years from issuance.

I purchased 200 rounds of 9mm from Gurnee Bass Pro today.  

Their aisle section of ammo is now blocked off from customer access and you have to tell the employee what you are looking for, and it makes it impossible to shop based on brand/price.  Then they run the FOID check through their computer at the gun counter. 

 

He keyed in my FOID number and then did a lot of mouse moving and clicking before he said I was okay.  Then we moved to the register for checkout.

Did you ask what all the moving and clicking was while he had your card?
