Illinois passes amended SB 1034, neglects far better option

But must it be as bad as all that? In most states, after all, the state police do not play any role in approving (or denying) gun sales. When a gun shop customer wants to buy a gun, the gun dealer dials up the federal NICS system, and finds out whether or not the sale may proceed--no state police involvement whatsoever.

Why not get Illinois out of the business of enforcing federal gun laws altogether? Why not scrap the FOID program, of which the vast majority of states have no equivalent, and do not seem to miss it? [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend.

Oh, and if you could spare a digg?
