    Illinois: Release Names of All Gun Owners

    Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan says state police must release the name of everyone in the state who is authorized to own a gun.
    State police determine who gets a Firearm Owners Identification card, which allows people to own guns. The police have always kept the list private.


    I believe Alabama will be one of the last State to go along with something like the above.

    Interesting. Don't release a list of the names of all convicted felons, just a list of people who are eligible to own a firearm. That makes perfect sense.

    Some states have passed laws barring releases of this information. Hopefully, incidents such as this will accelerate that trend.

    No kidding; I spent a year there going to school when I was in the Navy; had to get one of those FOID (Firearm owner identification card) in order to buy ammo to use in the range. That was 1989 I wonder if they still have my name??

    It's only a matter of time before all sane, law abiding citizens move out of the city of Chicago and in some cases, the State of Illinois. I hope the politicians are pleased with those who are left. No taxpayers and no money for police.

    ...I really can't stand Illinois. I don't think I'll ever willfully go there.

    They never considered that a smart home invader (pardon the expression) would check an address before trying to get inside so he can avoid getting shot. (They obviously hope the firearms would get stolen.)

    I wouldn't base any fears on the "weakest links". There are about 7 anti-gun states.....the rest are somewhat more pro-gun.

    The people of Illinois get what they voted for. Plain and simple.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    So do they also make the motor vehicle and driver license records public?

    What purpose would releasing that information serve? Just so people can look it up and not invite you to the neighborhood bbq because you have guns? Seems like a huge waste of time and money.
