    Normally we discuss firearms legislation and related struggles in the War Room. With all the trolls and gun-grabbers in there it seemed liked a good idea to have a places where pro-firearms people can comment on current events without all the negativity. So this thread is for discussing upcoming legislation, court cases, and which groups are out there fighting for our rights that deserve our support.

    For example, a group in my area recently formed called the Hawaii Firearms Coalition.

    https://hifico.org/
    https://www.facebook.com/hificoorg/

    As we know, cases that come out of Hawaii are in the 9th Circuit and can have a large effect on other parts of the country, including California. So even if you're not in Hawaii that doesn't mean a group like this can't benefit you down the road. If any of you are Facebook users then please throw 'em a like.

    Here's them in action. The state has a website to solicit opinions from the public on legislation. Turns out they don't use the site, but didn't tell anyone, and then didn't count all the testimony that came in speaking out the against the bill. When confronted it was typical bureaucracy.

    I have a feeling this will be a sad thread in the coming years.

    Here's good news. This is the case over New Yorkers not being able to transport their firearms out of the city to ranges or second homes.

    Some bad news from Illinois, surprise surprise

    https://www.wifr.com/content/news/I...bill-to-fingerprint-gun-owners-510623071.html

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois gun owners will be fingerprinted and will pay more for firearm owner identification cards under legislation approved by the Illinois House.

    The bill passed Wednesday is designed to address what Democratic Rep. Kathleen Willis of Addison calls deficiencies in the state's current Firearm Owner's Identification system. She said the bill is a response to the shooting at an Aurora factory in February that left six dead, including the shooter. Gary Montez Martin obtained a FOID card even though he was a convicted felon and should not have been eligible for one.
    _____________

    Not for a conceal carry liscense, just to simply own a gun and keep it in your home. Give the state your fingerprints and pay a hefty fine if you want to have your rights we do graciously allow to you.

    Don't bother looking into the number of homicides and assaults committed by people who already can't legally own a firearm anyway vs those who do legally own theirs. That gang violence isn't the problem.

    Good thing the Hearing Protection Act was all ready to go when the Republicans took control last election. Now here we are.

    dont blame donny on the HPA failure. House and Senate could have done that regardless of who sat in the executive office. The fact is, GOP uses threat of gun control as a carrot and stick for voters. and you never give them the carrot.
