Today the Illinois State Police filed emergency rules as part of implementing the gun and magazine ban registry. Yes, there are a number of (mostly) federal cases challenging the law, but as we’ve written here before, we don’t expect the courts to grant us relief before the registry closes at the end of the year.
Illinois State Police published their emergency rules today.
If all goes well for ISP, they’ll open their portal at ISPFSB.com on October 1st.
“Individuals who possessed an assault weapon, assault weapon attachment, .50 caliber rifle, or .50 caliber cartridge before the Act took effect are required to submit an endorsement affidavit through their Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) Card account prior to January 1, 2024,” ISP said in a statement.
First off, wait until mid-December if you’re going to register just in case we’re pleasantly surprised by the courts. If the law is struck down or blocked, the ISP isn’t going to delete any lists you’ve provided them.
Secondly, there’s no need to rush.
No, I haven’t had a chance to read over these as I’m pushing GunNews out the door.
