I have run across a question that I wasn't able to get answer from the Cook County Sheriff's Police. I live in Cook County, not Chicago, and am the holder of a C&R FFL. My question focuses on the acquisition of a SEMI-AUTO Thompson which is old enough to qualify for C&R but, is on the Cook County list.
My issue is this...if one reads the State of Illinois statute, it appears that for purposes of possession and transfer a firearm which qualifies as a C&R item on the BATF list, the procedures and obligations for transfer are the same as those for a regular FFL holder. As such, the question becomes is a C&R FFL holder exempt from the Cook County AWB with respect to C&R firearms..much in the same way that a regular Title 1 FFL is exempt with respect to Title 1 firearms?
