    Default Illinois confiscating firearms via FOID incompliance---not "worthy" to own!

    COLLINSVILLE, Ill. – During the Illinois State Police’s firearm enforcement blitz this summer, 295 people in southern Illinois were brought into compliance with Illinois gun laws.

    ISP held a news briefing Wednesday morning on how the blitz went from June 16 to July 31.

    During the blitz, ISP focused on people who posed the greatest threat to themselves or others. They conducted more than 1,700 compliance checks across the state which resulted in bringing more than 1,000 people into compliance. In southern Illinois, ISP Districts 6,7, and 8, there were 74 enforcement details consisting of 710 compliance checks. 295 people were brought into compliance with the law.

    Illinois State Police Director Brendan Kelly explained that after a person obtains a firearm legally, circumstances may change, and then the person could become prohibited from possessing a firearm. Some of these circumstances include being convicted of a felony or making threats that endanger public safety. When this happens, these people are identified and their Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) Card is then revoked. Local law enforcement is made aware of the situation and the person is required to give their firearms to law enforcement or someone who can legally possess them. The individual also must fill out a Firearms Disposition Record to be given to ISP. Kelly said thousands of people refuse to comply with these steps.

    But we're crazy when we state that gun registrations, testing and limits usher in tyranny! Very soon, people will start firing back---it's only a matter of time. They are FORCING us into a civil war.

    Southern Illinois is all grain farmers and good old boys. You'd hardly know it was the same state that has Chicago in it. This enforcement action was narrowly tailored to fit the sole purpose of pissing off Republicans.

    I sent that article to a friend who lives in southern IL, and asked if he felt safer. He said he no.

    I don't get what "brought into compliance" means. The examples they gave were all people who committed felonies and had there guns taken away. Don't they do that here?

    And the click bait title "Illinois gun blitz finds nearly 60% breaking laws " makes no sense. It should be 60% of convicted felons didn't turn in their guns so the cops went out and got them.

    Soooo. Joe says AR15s can't take on the government, then seconds later tells everyone they are deadly and effective weapons of war.

    Well Joe, which is it? Are they useless.against a government, or are they dangerous weapons of war?

    "Do you realize the bullet out of an AR-15 travels five times as rapidly as a bullet shot out of any other gun, five times * is lighter * and can pierce Kevlar?"

    Fascinating. Like 9mm blowing lungs out.

    Apparently, Biden employs the mentally-challenged as his speech writers, because they can't even use wikipedia to look up the muzzle velocity of an AR-15 vs other guns.
