    Last I heard they were deemed unconstitutional by the IL supreme Court, but I haven’t heard anything else about repealing the regulation. Any more news that you guys are aware of?

    Murdock v Pennsylvania > Unconstitutional to license a right

    Shuttelsworth v Birmingham > You can exercise your right with impunity if they pass a law converting it to a privilege

    Your whole state needs to give the government the middle finger and refuse to renew and/or obtain one

    As far as I know, the Illinois Supreme Court [has not](https://www.thecentersquare.com/illinois/illinois-supreme-court-hears-second-foid-card-challenge-this-year/article_895f04b2-0c95-11ea-ac22-2f919e2328ac.html) issued a final ruling on the subject. There are actually two cases in progress now. In one of the cases, a circuit court deemed the FOID card requirement unconstitutional, but it was appealed.

    A circuit court ruled them unconstitutional, and now it’s being heard by the Supreme Court. The case involved a disabled woman, who had no criminal history, and got caught with a .22 firearm. She’s facing a class A misdemeanor, which has a penalty of up to one year in jail and/or $2500 in fines.

    As far as I know nothing came from that case and barely avoided the awful “Fix the FOID” bill which would have required fingerprints.

    No positive changes to the law but they did screw owners over by doubling the fees, cutting the time they are good for in half and ordered everyone to get fingerprints that will stay on file with the State Police.

    Illinois sucks and I can’t wait to retire and escape in 4 years.
