The Illinois State Rifle Association has been asked to partner with the Firearms Policy Coalition of California and the Second Amendment Foundation of Washington (who we have successfully partnered with in McDonald v. Chicago and Ezell v. City of Chicago, among others) in pursuing the potential challenges:

  • Federal FOID Challenge - Anywhere within the State is fine. We are seeking both male and female Plaintiffs, so anyone who is interested in participating in such a challenge should contact us.

 

  • 18-20 Year-Old Carry Ban Challenge – Anywhere within the State is fine. We are seeking Plaintiffs who either have a FOID card, or who have their parents’ consent/sponsorship to get one. The participant must also have the ability to lawfully acquire a handgun.

 

  • Cook County Assault Weapons Ban - Any ISRA members who reside in Cook County who are interested in participating in an effort to change this law and overturn some incorrect Court decisions should contact us.

 Please contact Laura at 815.635.3198 or email laura@isra.org as soon as possible if you are willing to participate.

I have to wonder if the ISRA is saying it just wants anyone with a FOID. Or does it really want people whose FOID renewals have been delayed? Or people whose first-time applications have been delayed? Or anyone who doesn't want a FOID but wants a firearm?

Surely there's some criterion.
The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

Probably could be anyone, since you pay a fee to get a foid. But really since the 2nd amendment exists, they may be arguing that you shouldn’t have to pay to have that right.

The FOID adds a 30 day (at best) waiting period to your first handgun or ammo purchase.

 

If having one eliminated the 3 day waiting period, it would be a rather valuable piece of plastic to have.

I imagine the "good guy verification" brings some comfort if you are selling to someone outside of your circle.

A bit more specific about what would be entailed?

 

 

I believe in "shall not infringe."

 

I believe it is worth supporting any legal action opposing repression of the 2nd amendment rights.

 

What do you need?

I guess reach out to ISRA and ask.

Void the FOID!
