The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Illinois State Police to release names of all FOID card holders to the Associated Press


CLICK HERE if you wish to read the whole story.

CLICK HERE if you are interested in the reactions of a couple of State Senators.

A great number of otherwise law abiding Illinois gun owners do NOT have FOID cards, which technically makes them Class 4 Felons. Most of them argue that they do not want to be on any government list. Well, I guess I owe all of you non-FOID guys and gals an apology; you were right and the rest of us were wrong. Governments cannot be trusted.

As for those who do hold Illinois FOID cards, you may want to review your personal and home security arrangements, your voting history, and consider joining the Second Amendment Foundation, the Illinois State Rifle Association, and the National Rifle Association. As for those who do not vote or who do not belong to any gun rights groups, you can consider this another kiss.

I don't get it. What're they trying to do, out everyone who doesn't have a FOID and has guns?

Screw 'em. I burned that communist Waffenschein when I left the Volksrepublik Illinois.

Greetings from Texas,
I'm going to guess FOID is Firearms Owners I.D card? Your State Police are 'outing' everyone who plays by the rules?

I put off getting a dealers licence (still haven't) for years because I didn't want to be on anyones list. It finally occured to me one day there probably isn't a watch list in the country I'm not on. Like Crusty says, screw'em!
