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 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.

  1. Don’t worry. The Illinois Republican Uniparty will be there hand in hand with the Dems that voted for this absurd law to make sure they have proper funding. HB2722 robs you to empower the ISP to further rob you of your property and rights and freedoms. The next time you see one of these back stabbing Republicans make sure to thank them for stringing you along all of these years only to throw you under the bus when you need help the most. Please also tell them for the sake of honesty you might as well vote Democrat because that is what we’re getting. The Republicans are gun control enablers. If the state police were giving free rides to abortion clinics the Republicans might pause long enough to scratch their heads and figure out what’s more important to them. Pro-life or back the blue? As for the 2A, they don’t even consider this as a question due to lack of interest in how non-gun laws like HB2722 directly effect gun laws. If you supported the GOP for gun rights you were just taken for a ride.

    1. Repubs in IL don’t have votes to do a damn thing. I asked my Rep why he even drives to Springfield.

  2. So I read them. Biggest surprise is you can’t get em back if your FOID is suspended. Hmmm.

  3. Too bad the Gestapo doesn’t put this much effort into going after the gang members running wild in Shitcago. Then again PICA isn’t about reducing crime.

    1. Your gang members running wild in Chi”raq” will be your future “brownshirts” that will later at some future time will be incorporated into the Gestapo …..they are the ones you need to worry about going door to door to confiscate your weapons, not your rank and file state police officers….at least not the ones on todays government payrolls.

  4. I can’t see any upside to registering. Especially if you’re going to lose them if they suspend or revoke you for any reason. All they need to do is have a “computer glitch” that suspends everyone for a day and all the sudden all these items will become felony crimes.
