FOID stuff

Been a bit of back and forth on this issue of whether or not FOID cards actually register anything. Ravenwood notes that the Chicago authorities have already used FOID card information to confiscate guns.

    I didn’t mention it because I couldn’t find the link, but I would swear that Illinois has also been keeping purchase records and background check information in a defacto gun registry.

    My understanding is they require the gun dealers to keep records of transactions for 10 years, but that’s it. Presumably, they could subpoena individual records under certain circumstances, but I doubt they could do it wholesale. If they could – e.g., require all dealers to provide records of all “assault” weapons sold during a particular range of dates – then the FOID would play only a marginal role, if any at all.

    Firearms transactions (sale, gift, trade) in Illinois are required to be documented and saved for ten years. It doesn’t matter if it is a sale by a dealer or a private individual. Documentation is required to be made and kept by the seller. There is no requirement to turn it in.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
