    Greetings all from the land of the total handgun ban and the FOID (Firearm Owner ID) card. I'm hoping that McDonald v. Chicago will take care of the first part soon - although I would expect victory to still be met with burdensome and intrusive regulation that will make the right next to impossible to exercise.

    I'm a big fan of Sig pistols and have several, even though I have to keep them outside of Chicago. Tomorrow is my class for the Florida non-resident CC permit, and I'm excited about that even if it means nothing in Illinois.

    Anyways, happy to be here.
