FOID Privacy Advances
- A measure that would keep the state’s list of registered gun owners private has advanced in the Illinois House.
The House Judiciary Committee voted 9-1 on Wednesday to exempt the list of Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card holders from the state’s Freedom of Information Act.
Earlier this month, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan ruled that the Illinois State Police must release the names of the state’s registered FOID card holders because it is public information not exempted from FOIA access laws.
And we're trying to figure out this comment by a supposed republican that doesn't seem to help our cause:
- Citing nervous gun owners who are “up in arms, literally,” State Rep. Richard Morthland (R-Moline) sponsored legislation that would exempt the state’s FOID card list from FOIA requests.
We know that the regular left-tard anti-gun trolls will be checking in here again. Try not to waste your time - we won't be publishing your comments. We advocate concealed carry and responsible gun ownership for all Americans as the Founding Fathers intended. If you don't want to own a gun, don't. But don't expect us to kowtow to your willingness to surrender a Constitutionally guaranteed right. And before you start screaming "censorship!" we remind you that censorship is a government function. We aren't the government. No one is stopping you from starting your own blog and advocating your position to the best of your ability. We're just stopping you from polluting this bandwidth.
