I thought Tank's house was outside of the "no gun zone". Isn't it in or near Gurnee. As far as I know, his offense was no FOID.

Outside of the immediate Chicago area we just have to deal with Illinois laws, draconian as they may be.

That's a good point...I forgot he lived outside of Chicago. I should also mention to assume that we're talking about a FOID card holder. You can at least look at the man in Wilmette...he didn't even have a FOID and still was only given a fine. I guess what I'm asking is, would it be the same in Chicago?

He's been arrested a few times and was convicted of a felony prior to his last arrest for firearms possession. Being that he is a convicted felon, it's illegal for him to own any firearms.

Tank is in jail, should be coming out soon. Unfortunately IL law protects the criminals more than you and I. If someone happens to be in your house intruding, you have no right to harm him. He could be watching TV in your house sitting next to your daughter, and you cant do jack shi*! Now if suddenly he happens to have your kitchen knife in his hand and is attempting to harm someone or you, its showtime!

Illinois protects the criminals so much, they get away with murder. If someone breaks into your house and punches you and you detain him by punching his lights out, the cops will congratulate you but the criminals lawyer will probably have a lawsuit on you. The criminal will then get your house, car, and maybe wife.

I don't believe that for a second...if someone intrudes into your house, how could anyone possibly hold you at fault. I mean, what the hell kind of people would have to be in a jury that convicts someone in that situation!?!??!

Also, check this out...my lawyer friend said this is current Chicago ordinance...

I HAVE TONS OF GUNS AND NO RECEIPTS OR PAPERWORK FOR ANY OF THEM! I DO NOT PLAN TO BE A COP IN ILLINOIS, AS I HAVE NO DESIRE TO PROTECT AND DEFEND ANYONE IN A STATE THAT DOES NOT EVEN ALLOW ITS CITIZENS THE PROTECTION OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION!!!

I GUESS WHEN I SHOW UP WITH ALL MY GUNS AND I TAKE A FEW MONTHS TO GET SETTLED AND MAYBE CHANGE MY LICENSE (ONLY IF I HAVE TO), THEN I'LL GET A STUPID FOID CARD. CAUSE YOU KNOW ALL THE GARBAGE THAT LIVES IN EAST ST. LOUIS HAS FOID CARDS AND FOLLOWS THE LAW AND NEVER, EVER COMMITS ANY CRIMES.

F.U. ILLIOIS!!!





OK. NOW I FEEL BETTER.

Dude, I live in Southern IL...its not as bad down here as up north....I personally am trying to get over into MO so I can have a few more rights.....if you are far enough south u should consider living in western KY they are like a little TX...

Old news. Chicago keeps taking steps towards a total firearms ban, although the recent ruling on DC might give them pause for thought.

so is it true? can you legally own a handgun in your home in Chicago if you're part of a shooting club?

Also, all of illinois let's you own a handgun in your home, but in regards to any municipalities that ban guns, you'd only be subject to their laws and repercussions, not anything from the state, right?

Check the ordinances for Chicago at:

The only state restriction to owning any firearm is the owner must possess a valid FOID card. If a municipality passes a more restrictive ordinance then any violation of that ordinance is a municipal matter, not state.

Glockers especially Pancho,


Can you live in Chicago and own a pistol/AW but keep the weapon at a friend/parents house who has a valid foid?

I might be moving to Chicago here and am trying to figure out what to do....
