Illinois is poised to enact a law imposing harsher penalties for possession of a firearm with a firearms owners' identification card (FOID). It will increase the penalty to one year in prison and needs only the governor's signature. http://blogs.findlaw.com/blotter/201...html?=features
Stiffer penalties will undoubtedly dissuade more law abiding citizens from taking steps to protect themselves, but how can anyone think it's going to do anything to stem drug and gang violence? Assuming the 2A is incorporated in McDonald
, what do you think the future of FOID cards are? I mean, do you have to get a permit to exercise a fundamental right?
