I heard this on talk radio today, but can't find anything using a google search. He ok'd a search of his property and around 30 guns were found. He had a FOID card but none of his guns were 'registered'. Does anyone have an article?

I would love to see a source...I haven't heard this news.

I have many friends that live in the city of Chicago and none of them have registered their guns... four of these friends are police officers!

on a more serious note. This is how gun control works. Just pass a law. There does not need to be a large scale confiscation. One little sheep gets caught and one little sheep at a time gets sheared. And then there were none..................

i thought all firearms were outlawed. At one time, pistols were outlawed but current owners were grandfathered. Long guns were permitted up until a year or so ago, then they too were banned. It's hard to keep up with such a progressive municipality.

Since it's late at night - I won't be too bad of a post whore if I present this. The .gif was a gift (I consider it a gift, as it is cool!) from an arfcommer (when archives are available, I'll find it) who "fixed" the original.

BHD had been out for about a year or so, I think. As imagined, there's lot's of fans of Bowden's book on this site.

btw - yes, safety is off...

now - get out your calculator to tabulate how many times that gun and mag were cleared prior to being tossed in juniors lap...
