Oh this is just funny as hell. The background...anyone applying for a FOID and under the age of 21 must receive written permission from a parent/guardian, which may make you say "WHAT!?" because, you know, that requires a legal adult to have a guardian, which means that they're federally prohibited from possessing a firearm anyway since the state only allows someone to have a guardian if they're incapable of handling their own affairs. Plus there's that whole infringing on the Second Amendment thing. She's of legal age and wants to purchase a double-barrel shotgun as per Joe Biden's advice. She even found one, reasonably priced according to her attorney. Alas, her parents will not give their permission so she, a legal adult, may not exercise her Second Amendment rights. She filed a lawsuit in ILSD under Title 42 Section 1983 of the Civil Rights Act against an Illinois State Police employee acting under official capacity, asking for Defendant to process the application and to be enjoined from requiring parental consent.

Here's the docket:
Case docket: Horsley v. Trame
Complaint:
http://ia801704.us.archive.org/3/ite....61825.2.0.pdf

Plaintiff's counsel even cited Joe Biden's comments in the complaint *HUGE toothy grin*

"23. That in February, 2013, Vice-President Joe Biden suggested that “[i]f you want to protect yourself, get a double-barreled shotgun.

24. That pursuant to the suggestion of Vice-President Joe Biden, Plaintiff Horsley sought to acquire, and became aware of a double barrel shotgun for sale, in a price that she could reasonably afford.

26. That by being denied a FOID card Plaintiff is being denied her constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, under the Second and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, and thus, is suffering irreparable harm, as she cannot lawfully purchase or otherwise acquire and lawfully possess a double barrel shotgun, as suggested by Vice-President Joe Biden, or any other firearm for self defense."

Also, see People v. Mosley up in Crook County where a judge declared Illinois' AUUW (aggravated unlawful use of a weapon) to be unconstitutional under the Due Process Clause because 18-20 year olds can't apply for a FOID without parental permission then goes onto further declare the AUUW unconstitutional due to the sentece being disproportionate. The sentence is a mandatory Class 4 felony with one year in prison and after that ruling, the scumbags in Chicago are trying to make it a Class 3 felony, 3-10 years, worse than agg assault, meth possession, stalking, etc...that's Illinois. This is BEYOND slam-dunk but her attorney could have the entire FOID card crap turned on its head if he cites People v. Mosley. Then again, it's been assigned to the same judge (Stiehl) who dismissed Mary Shepard's case (Shepard v. Madigan, the one Gura picked up, consolidated with Moore v. Madigan and got the ban on carry in Illinois kicked by CA7).

Here's the ruling in People v. Mosley (3-15-2013) by Judge Brown in Cook County of all places (apologies for the quality of the OCR, the PDF is 4.5 MB):
