I admit that I only gave the attachment a quick "once over". The only penalty that I see for not carrying the insurance is revocation of a FOID card. If this is accurate, the only people that would be punished for not carrying insurance are legal gun owners. Please tell me I am overlooking something.

that is true...

The bigger issue is the fact that being forced to pay for insurance to exercise a constitutional right is in and of itself unconstitutional. Although the simple fact that we Ilinoisans have to pay and get approved to have a FOID card in the first place is also unconstitutional kind of sets a precedent for it.

I don't believe this bill has moved forward at all.

I really found this post quite informative. Insurance is the transfer of the risk of a loss, from one person to another person or agency in exchange for payment. It Gives the financial security from damages and accidents...

The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
