The Great (cough cough) State of Illinois (cough cough cough)
« on: September 26, 2023, 08:56:11 PM »
As everyone has heard the State of Illinois has started us down the road to registration of arms. The Safer Act, not exactly correct but close enough to the name, bans the sale and transfer of certain scary items, and for those who already own them we must file a registration prior to January 1, 2024. Keep in mind this all passed a year ago. I've been questioning exactly what is required, and what I'm supposed to do, but can't find anything anywhere, even on the State Police website. Soooooo, I requested information, and here is their response:

to me

Good Morning,

 

Registration is not available at this time. As you are aware, Gov. Pritzker signed Public Act 102-1116 into law on January 10th, 2023. As such, 720 ILCS 5/24-1.9 (a)(8)(d), allows for possession of an assault weapon, assault weapon attachment, .50 caliber rifle or .50 caliber cartridge device if a person has provided an endorsement affidavit to the ISP prior to 1/1/2024, but no later 10/1/23. At this time, ISP does not have the ability to accept or receive such an endorsement affidavit, nor have the manner in which such an endorsement affidavit will be accepted been determined. Statute provides that it shall be available to the public no later than 10/1/23 and is currently under development. When the ISP has created the ability to accept and received such an endorsement, FOID card holders will be notified through their selected method and information will be publicly available notifying of the endorsement affidavit going live. i.e. We cannot take your registration yet but will have something available no later than October 1st. When we have something available, you will hear about it in some manner (i.e. letter, email, text, TV, radio, ad, etc.).           

 

Here are some FAQs regarding the Assault Weapons Ban.

 

If you have additional questions, please seek legal counsel, as we do not provide legal advice or interpretation.

Call Center Number (217) 782-7980

J273

It is September 26, five days from their deadline to have in place, and they have no information. I called the call center this afternoon for an estimate on when the system will be ready, and they cannot tell us anything. I asked if I would be able to access it on October one, as the law states, and she replied "No."

Typical government control program:  Pass more laws without the ability to enforce. Without the ability to meet their own requirements for institutiong.

They'll enforce it and blame it on owners..even though they are not responsible for the inability to administer unconstitutional and unjust laws..

Looks like this should be a loophole cause for some enterprising gun rights group to file a class action against Ill-A-noise.

Whatever the law says is required in that "endorsement affidavit",  I'd make up my own letter with that information, send it via registered mail to arrive on 12/29/2023.  Done.

Of course you know they'll get "it" working around 12/15, then the system will crash because it is so overloaded.

I know this is impractical BUT if at all possible MOVE....... Run, Forest RUN!!!!

Illinois (IMHO) is like California and past the point of no return until after the shooting starts.
The time for action is upon us and the enemy is at our gates. Let us not allow them one more inch of advancement but instead throw them through the gates of Hell.

Almost like this type of thing has happened before, eh?

Move them to Wisconsin, GET THEM OUT OF ILLINOIS!!!

When Blagoyavich and his ilk were swept into office (including an AG who had never been in any part of a criminal case, but hey, she was the Speaker's daughter so it's fine!), I actually moved them out to Wyoming to a friend's house out there. I didn't have any Class III, so who knew, right? Then 9/11 hit and I had nothing but a pump shotgun and a Springfield M1A on order. But that's another story.
