Holy smokes, Batman. JB Pritzker planned to claim that 78% of Illinois FOID holders complied with the gun registration scheme on about December 5th. Yeah, the scheme was drawn up among Pritzker and his inner circle in a planned effort to gaslight gun owners into thinking their fellow FOID holders were all dutifully complying with the gun registry scheme. At the rate things are going, JB will be lucky to get .78% compliance by Week 9.
Yes, Week 1’s compliance rate was .0434% (1050 of 2,415,481 FOID holders).
Like most, we expected gun registrations to accelerate as we get closer to the end of the year deadline, but they’re actually slowing down.
While the state got 1050 gun owners to comply in week one, only an additional 568 gun owners registered their stuff. Which gives a total compliance rate of .0669%
That’s not even 7 of every 10,000 gun owners.
Let’s say things pick up back to Week 1 rates of an average of about 1050 per week… if that happens the state will still see a compliance rate of less than one half of one percent.
Clearly Land of Lincoln gun owners aren’t impressed with the Governor’s demands to register their popular self-defense firearms.
