    Door to door gun confications are happening? Illinois?

    http://www.icarry.org/ftopict-5548.html

    quote "State Police in undercover cars are apparently confiscating large numbers of guns by going door-to-door to FOID card holders who have either expired cards or revoked cards.

    I know this because a couple that are personal friends of mine, who I've known for years, had a visit yesterday. My friend's FOID card was 5 days expired. They confiscated all of his guns and ammunition.

    He was at work at the time, but his wife, who has been through a long and hard battle with cancer, was home. The State Police took advantage of her lack of knowledge of her rights and her kindness and used it to steal all of their weapons.

    These people were on my trap team. They are good people - the best kind of people. They are originally from Tennessee where this kind of nonsense doesn't happen. They are very fed up with Illinois right now.":


    Does anyone know about this and is this the case?

    I never said this was large scale, nor implied such. What I did do is ask if anyone was familiar with this and knew anything about it. The insane idea that the expired card suddenly means your property belongs to them is unconstitutional in the least.

    They know better than to do anything large scale, bad press and politics. They just continue to chip away at it while we sit here and complain to ourselves about it.

    the original poster of the thread you cite did and does imply such.

    Multi-Agency Collaboration Effort Credited

    Rockford, Ill. -- The Illinois State Police, Rockford Police Department, Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office, Loves Park Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) conducted a revoked Firearms Owner Identification (FOID) card operation this morning as part of the continuing “Operation Clean Sweep.”

    The operation started early Wednesday morning with approximately 25-30 officers from Illinois State Police, Rockford Police, Winnebago County Sheriff’s, Loves Police and the ATF. Approximately 25 residences were targeted as part of the operation. The purpose of the operation was to ensure individuals with revoked FOID privileges were not illegally possessing or transferring firearms.

    'Revoked FOID'? Doesn't say anything about 'expired'.

    How does one get his FOID revoked?

    not sure if you mean the ridiculous MI laws or the even more ridiculous IL laws, but i don't agree with either. and the whole idea of having a foid card should be unconstitutional altogether, but i guess the people of Illinois are content to let them get away with it. hell now rahm emanuel is calling for a statewide gun registry. the Second amendment Foundation's case against IL was just thrown out by a Federal judge too because they said the SCOTUS has ruled that the 2A only applies inside someone home.

    Wait, you mean registration led to confiscation? Hmmm, who would have guessed?

    Wow just wow. When I read "operation clean sweep" I immediately got a picture in my head of the Nazis going house to house and disarming the Jews.
    Never get complacent. Practice situational awareness. Stay alert stay alive.

    the definition of godwin's law is that hitler is invoked inappropriately.

    I take it there's not as many boating accidents in Illinois as there is in Michigan.

    with the appointments of sonia and elana i would say he doing it right out in the open. it makes me so mad when i read that "obama has not done anything bad to gun owners and has actually expanded gun rights". i guess the appointment of 2 of the most anti 2A justices in history is not a big deal?
