Illinois Hit Hard by Obama's DOJ, Chicago's Anti-Gun Agenda

The Illinois State Police are pushing legislation that could have a severe, negative impact on gun rights in Illinois. Senate Bill 1034, which was introduced as an anti-drug bill, was recently amended by the state House of Representatives to cover Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) cards.

This issue surfaced due to the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ), which has allegedly threatened to shut down Illinois State Police access to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS if numerous changes to Illinois law are not implemented.

The ISP are the point of contact for NICS checks, so whenever a Federal Firearms Licensee wishes to sell a firearm in Illinois, he must contact the ISP, who then contact NICS to ensure the person who wishes to purchase the firearm is not prohibited from doing so. If the DOJ decides to shut down ISP access to NICS because the state does not capitulate to DOJ’s legislative demands, then FFLs would be unable to comply with state law and would be out of the business of selling firearms for as long as NICS is not operational in Illinois.

This negative impact to your constitutional rights and the economy, should such steps be taken, appears to be of little concern to the Obama Administration.

The problems with SB 1034 are numerous, and include unacceptable requirements that Social Security numbers be included with FOID card applications, overly broad expansion of the classes of people prohibited from purchasing a firearm, unclear residency requirements for lawful gun owners who move to Illinois, and potentially unconstitutional restrictions on individuals who object to providing a photograph for the FOID Card application due to religious reasons. These are just some of the flaws contained in SB 1034.

While this bill has some useful provisions, there is far more contained within that is completely unnecessary, unwarranted, and possibly unconstitutional.

The ISP have been unwilling to accept NRA’s input to help fix the bill, so our only recourse at this time is to work with lawmakers to fix the problems or defeat this bill. At this time, SB 1034 is moving quickly, and must be stopped NOW.

No they're not. They're abusive socialists. In a communist run country, everyone works. Does everyone in Illinois that receives government money work?

I have lived here all my life and I am beginning to lose hope that Illinois will ever see the light of day again. Out side of the metropolitan area of Chicago, the state is full of normal voters but these malignant cook county voters are killing this state and I am beginning to think there is no hope for the future here. There are too many people willing to drink water that the rest of us carry.

ISP is full of Chicago machine, political hack assholes, just like the county and tree police are. I am not surprised in any way by this move.

I just heard that Illinois and Cuba are the only places that have FOID cards. Can anyone verify or add to this?

Less talk...more action. Let's all get on the phone and call our state reps and senators (ha!) and tell them NO! Unacceptable. Don't let them put their hands on OUR guns and our right to own them.

Get on the phone, make the calls and pass it on to others, so that they will be informed and make their calls. Stand up and SHOUT it out to them....don't tread on us!
