BREAKING :
ACCORDING TO GUN PROHIBITIONISTS, EUROPE IS MUCH SAFER THAN THE UNITED STATES, BECAUSE EUROPE HAS STRICTER GUN CONTROL. IN FACT, THE HISTORICAL RECORD SHOWS THAT EXCESSIVE GUN CONTROL (AS IN EUROPE) IS ABOUT A HUNDRED TIMES MORE DEADLY THAN "INSUFFICIENT" GUN CONTROL (AS, SUPPOSEDLY, IN THE U.S.). WHILE A LONE CRIMINAL WITH A GUN CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS, A CRIMINAL GOVERNMENT WITH A DISARMED POPULATION IS THE DEADLIEST THING ON EARTH, SAYS AUTHOR.POLICE ARE SEARCHING FOR SUSPECTS WHO STOLE NEARLY 40 GUNS FROM A RAPID CITY GUN SHOP.

IL – GUN CONTROL – More Suits Challenging IL FOID Cards

The future of Illinois’ Firearm Owners Identification card could be in jeopardy.  D’Andre Bradley, a Marine living in Chicago Heights, is the lead plaintiff in a federal lawsuit filed Monday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division.  At issue is the Illinois State Police’s long delays in issuing FOID Cards. The Illinois State Police is named as the defendant in the case.  “There’s this ridiculous amount of time that we have to wait for our FOIDs,” Bradley said Tuesday. “The best thing to do is to go forward with a lawsuit and move on from there.” Bradley said he has no legal or mental issues that would disqualify him for gun ownership under Illinois laws.  State law requires FOID cards to be issued or denied within 30 days, but Bradley and others have said delays have gone on months longer. Illinois is one of 10 states that require a permit to buy at least some firearms, according to the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. When asked about the delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bradley said the Second Amendment should be protected just as other Constitutional rights. “Just because there’s an epidemic doesn’t mean your rights disappear,” he said. The complaint, filed with help from the nonprofit Goldwater Institute, asks the state to either issue FOID cards without delay or abolish the program entirely. Illinois has seen an increase in firearm purchases. FBI data shows more than 42,000 Illinoisans had requested background checks run in order to purchase a firearm in just the first half of June, representing a 500 percent increase from the same time the year prior. The suit is the latest in a handful of legal battles over FOID delays that predate the pandemic. “We’ve been looking at this problem for a long time, gathering information for filing this lawsuit, and that day has finally come,” Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson said. “These delays have gone on long enough. We had hoped to avoid litigation, but at this moment, we have no choice.” Illinois State Police officials said underfunding and an increase in firearm transactions contributed to the delays.  [full article]
