Illinois Continues Gun Confiscation

 

 

” A recent article from the Chicago Sun Times tells us that Cook County Sheriffs are continuing the fine tradition of Illinois gun grabs by going door-to-door confiscating firearms from people who have expired FOID cards. Every Illinois gun owner is required to have a “Firearms Owners Identification Card” to own a firearm. If a gun owner lets the 10 year expiration date pass without renewal, they’re now illegally in possession of firearms. They won’t get a friendly reminder, instead they will hear jack boots kicking their door in to forcibly separate them from their Constitutionally protected personal property.

Think about how many times in your life you have let your drivers license expire unintentionally…

For about a decade now Chicago CAGE units have been compiling a list of gun owners. CAGE is a catchy acronym for “Chicago Anti-Gun Enforcement” and is a joint venture between the Chicago Police and the Illinois State Police. As their name implies, they exist solely to enforce gun control laws and to harass Illinois gun owners. It also appears they’re responsible for keeping a registry of Illinois gun owners.”

“Today is a good day for the Second Amendment in Illinois. We have scored a victory against short-sighted Chicago anti-gun policies,” Luechtefeld said, the Illinois Reviewreported on Wednesday. “The Governor overstepped his reach when he decided to rewrite this Senate bill and impose an assault weapons ban without the measure first being heard by the legislature.”

Quinn had attempted to change Senate Bill 681. The legislation allows FOID card holders to mail-order ammunition purchases from in-state licensed firearm dealers. Quinn had tried to include language that would have banned so-called assault weapons and certain ammunition magazines “
