"The Associated Press had requested the list of FOID cardholders but state police said that would violate the privacy of gun owners. The attorney general's office ruled that argument invalid. "


So the Att Gen's office can just say privacy rights don't apply? Maybe it's just me, but shouldn't a judge have some play in this?

The Illinois Firearms Owners Group (or equivalent) should publish an ad saying "Everyone else in the state is unarmed. Who would you rather do a home invasion on?"

Yep! That would be great.

Has this attourney general never studied the 5th Amendment?

basically it gives us the right to a fair trial....but underneath that it includes self-incrimination which means the government cannot distribute unneccesary personal information....am I wrong?

Why don't the good down state folks in ILL. break off from Cook Co. and bull doze E.St. Louise. This would make a big shooting range. This would be one hell of an improvment project in the midwest.

Default Illinois

Just another day in the great State of Illinois folks.

SSDD

We have been living under the yoke of the Chicago machine for generations. Unlike our neighbors in any direction, this state returned the Democrats to power inspite of the scandals of the Blagojevich administration and the basic failure of Democrats in this state to do anything productive.

The voters in two counties in the state can control state elections. Theses are basically the urban / suburban areas in and around Chicago and East St. Louis. The current govenor is basically the lap dog of the Chicago mayor. Chicago politicians control both the house and the senate and make the procedural rules that preserve their control.

Lisa Madigan, the AG involved in this debacle, is the daughter of the house speaker Michael Madigan. In terms of legal widsom she is the equivalent of a 7 watt bulb in a stadium light. Gun control is a core belief in the machine.

The state rifle association and the Illinois Carry coalition have been tearing up the net with commentary. Not that it matters to the Chicago machine. They have enough support from the sheep to keep themselves fat, happy and in control. Everything in machine politics is about control and power. Makes Vito Corleone look like an altar boy.

Sad situation. See Richard Venola's back page article in the March Guns and Ammo magazine for more commentary on the Illinois FOID in general.

Rest, assured, the fight against this will continue.

We will not give up.
We will not be intimidated.
We will not be disarmed.
We are free people inspite of the tyranny of the machine.

I have said this before. If you are not a dues paying member of a civil rights organization like the NRA, local Rifle and Pistol Association, 2nd Amendment Foundation or similar:
