    Angry Background checks for private gun sales in Illinois

    I hadn't heard anything about this previously. As of 1/1/2014 a private seller will have to contact the Illinois State Police to have them run a background check on the buyer. *sigh*

    Well it will stop criminals from selling guns to other criminals, because they will know that the potential buyers will fail the background check.

    Too bad they didn't outlaw murder to cut down on murders. A law outlawing murders would make it harder to commit murders.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    This is what happens in places where a permit is required to own a gun. No permit,,, no way possible to do this crap.
    Which is why when folks say oh but we should have some sort of (pick any reason you want too) permit to own a gun I about throw up.

    They tried this in Nevada. Citing Sandy hook and when it was pointed out this would have done nothing about Sandy hook the response was"We have to do something." The Governor ended up vetoing it.

    Illinois governor signs law expanding background checks for potential gun owners | Fox News

    "This legislation makes perfect sense ... It will make my officers safer, and our communities safer.
    I wanna' see Chicago's crime figures in 2015...anyone like to wager if they go down, up or stay relatively the same?

    Chicago is little more than a city run by political thugs and will soon go the way of Detroit where the City Police Union Rep made a public statement warning
    visitors steer clear of Detroit.

    Their logic, and I'm giving them a lot of credit they don't deserve, is so flawed that it's sad.

    Doesn't the FOID card make this kinda redundant? Anyone following the legal process of firearms purchasing will already have passed background checks to get the card, right?

    Just sounds like more feel good BS in a state full of feel good BS.

    Actually no. The FOID card shows that they passed a background check just prior to the card being issued. The FOID card is good for multiple years. So you may be buying a firearm with a FOID card that 5 years old. That is why they run a current background check just prior to a gun sale.

    Don't get me wrong, I think it is a terrible law.

    Illinois is going to do anything and everything it can to make life miserable for lawful citizens to own, carry or sell their firearms. I'm shocked that they allow the out of state CCL holders to carry in our vehicles.

    It would be nice if gun owners were able to leave the state and go somewhere else

    That was my original title for this thread but thought I'd go with something a bit more informative. lol

    I especially enjoyed this part...

    The governor, speaking less than 7 miles from the Indiana border, addressed whether the new restrictions could push transactions illegal in Illinois across state lines.

    "It's really important that we have a federal" measure that would monitor guns nationwide, Quinn said, "but you've got to start somewhere."


    A federal measure? We all know that's liberal code for registration.
