This is why I never joined the NRA. I suspect that the government has the NRA membership list and will go after them first.
in the republik of illinois we have the foid card. lucky us.
I live in Illinois too. Have you tried purchasing a high capacity mag lately? SOLD OUT EVERYWHERE.
I'm visiting family in the U.P. and today went out and purchased what I was looking for back home at a lower price and bought all I wanted. Up here I can buy whatever I want, no FOID card needed. Take that, Illinois! You rat bastards can't seize what you don't KNOW about!
Feinstein is an insane liberal and she nearly singlehandedly ruined the political climate in San Francisco. There is no reason to listen to her for anything at any time.
I live in Illinois and that FOID card only allows you to own guns, it doesn't mean you actually own one.
I lost mine in a boating accident in Lake Michigan, a very deep lake.
True, but having a FOID Card doesn't necessarily mean the Card holder owns or 'possesses' a firearm. I've known a few folks who have or had FOID Cards but didn't own a firearm. They'd rent a gun when they went to a range, used a friends gun, or 'planned' to buy a gun but never did. But granted it does give the Gestapo (Geheime Staatspolizei) a place to start looking.
an aside: I have a BATF C&R License so I've been in the G's database for a long time anyway. So for me our STOO-PID™ IL FOID Card is kinda moot.
