    Yeah I heard about that new law. More uneducated anti-gun B.S!!! Do you suppose the bad guys are going to follow the law and only obtain one handgun a month? Again, I feel for all of you law abiding residents of states that are not shall issue ccw states.

    I really hope the Chicago handgun- ban case currently in the S.C.O.T.U.S. goes our way. Maybe that would set the stage for change in the heavily restrictive states.

    Glad you mentioned The Chicago Case, I was just started reading the NRA Brief that was filed back on the 16th. Try this link:

    I live in Illinois and I have to tell you that the state does have some crazy gun laws in place. We are praying for a favorable ruling in the Supreme Court case to be decided this summer. If they do rule in our favor maybe Mayor Daley will stop his stupid war on guns. This guy has 44 armed body guards for 24/7/365 protection and then tells the people if they come under a deadly attack to call 911!! We law abiding citizens of Illinois are working very hard to gain our rights given to us by our creator and protected by the Constitution of the United States, but I must admit it has been a neverending battle. I am involved in the NRA, Illinois State Rifle Association, ICarry, IGOLD, and other groups to turn this state around. The Firearms Owners Identification Card (FOID) registers the person not the gun. All gun owners (with the exception of criminals!) must have a FOID card to possess a firearm, to touch a firearm, or to buy ammunition for a firearm. This is nothing more than a way for the state of Illinois to get money from the law abiding gun owners in Illinois. It's a sham and nothing more. We are working every day to get concealed carry passed in our state. There must be something good about concealed carry because in Chigago (where you can't possess a handgun) if you are elected to the Chigago city council, you automatically are sworn in as a deputy of the county of Cook so you can carry a hand gun for protection!! So these council members get to carry for protection and then tell the residents you need to call 911 if your life is being threatened! Ya gotta love it! But one thing is for sure, the pro gun, pro concealed carry, pro second Amendment warriors are never going to give up here in Illinois. We're right, their wrong and we will save our God given rights. I just finished the 4-day defensive handgun course at Front Sight training in Nevada along with the CCW course. I now enjoy the ownership of my Florida CCW and waiting on the Nevada CCW. For me when I visit Florida and Nevada it will be a bit unusual to be carrying but I will get used to it. I do wish I would see someone post a very defined listing of CCW laws for each state only stating the requirements for driving through each state. I travel by car quite a bit and it would be very helpful to know what laws are in place for CCW holders just passing through each state. If this list is available please let me know. It's great to be a member of this organization and I know one day Illinois will join the other 48 states that have CCW. Then Wisconsin will the the only holdout!

My day trip to n.y.c. would have been much better if i could have had my usual 21 rounds of Corbon 45 acp ammo on my person. I just didnt feel all that protected with a tiny can of o.c. in my pocket.

    Oh wait, n.y.c. has lots of gun control laws to make us safe right? Well then, that place should be crime free. My badd.

    Yep here in New Jerkistan it's the same way. We call it a FID (Firearms Identification) card. We need it to buy a long gun and a handgun permit which you need for every handgun purchased. Handgun ammo you need the card to purchase it. I don't buy much handgun ammo here. I use cheaper than dirt or others. Surprisingly they ship ammo here no problems. At least for now.

    The irony of all these laws is that the Supreme Court has ruled that felons are exempt from most gun laws because filing any paperwork would be self-inciminating and violate the 5th amendment.

    I can only find one reason to go to Illinois for any signifigant length of time. Learn How to Decorate Cakes, Cupcakes, Cookies & Candy at the Wilton School And after about a month and a half, I'd run out of classes to take.

    YOU HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD IT IS A "MONEY MAKER"
    They don't care, because they know it doesn't reduce crime.
    But they can make money taxing gun owners.
    Why do you think Florida, Penn, etc are so open to non-resident licenses???

    BTW I live in Illinois, and have lived in several other states. Lousy gun laws here in Daley's Fifedom, but otherwise nice place to live.
