    If the guns are being sold to Chicagoans, without permits to have them in the city, they do face prosecution. But I agree with the NRA spokesman quoted in the article:

    Todd Vandermyde, a legislative liaison for the National Rifle Association, said he believes Chicagoans are getting FOID cards to comply with state law but are snubbing their noses at the city ordinance because they believe the registration process is too onerous.

    “They’re taking their chances with the city,” he said. “It’s just an ordinance violation.”

    Officials said the statewide number of FOID card holders and applications for cards has also risen in recent years.

    Good for them! Eventually, as Chicagoans and other Illinois residents come to their collective senses, they will pass a law with a large enough majority, that Chicago won't be able to claim home rule...

    C'mon Windy City! Git 'r' done!
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    They finally got rid of Daley. Now if they could just get rid of Madigan, IL. would probably get on board with the rest of the country.

    I think they may be waking up and realize that other States actually trust their residents with the ability to carry a firearm for protection.I gotta be honest,up until Kansas was talking about getting a concealed carry law about 6 or 7 years ago I didn't realize people could carry without having some kind of good reason like Jewelry salesman,or carrying large sums of cash.
    With all the news about armed citizens defending themselves lately I think more people that were in the dark are now seeing the light

    Unless ALL the corrupt Chicago officials get booted to the curb by the voters, there will never be any serious legislation on carry permits and a relaxation on gun ownership.

    My wife is from Illinois so we are quite aware of the laws concerning guns. Most people outside of Chicago are very gun friendly but as I stated above, Chicago rules the Land of Lincoln, lock, stock and barrel.

    Well, if they are ever needed, they will probably be needed there first!
