Let me clarify for you Peet. Each response of mine in red was only addressing each point. What I meant was, that having to posses a valid FOID and present it to get the new permit, was not an unreasonable requirement.
As an aside, if you read the law in regards to obtaining a FOID, and its purpose. It doesn't really seem that bad a system. As long as they don't use it to register fireams. Or somehow invalidate FOID cards and issue no new ones.
Listen, I'm not going to disagree with anyone who thinks that IL gun laws in general and Chicago's new ordinance in particular are excessive. However, it is what it is. Hoping for some judicial miracle that will instantly grant full gun rights to Chicagoans is unrealistic. They had a complete
handgun ban in Chicago, now they don't, thats progress.
