    Make sure you tell us you have a gun in your bag....this way we can tag it for security purposes, and also our handlers will know which bag to take a peek into :upeyes:

    TSA=Those Stupid ***holes

    The article mentions a FOID card. I didn't know what that is, so I looked it up.

    FOID FAQ

    "The FOID card was created in 1968, by the FOID Act, as a way to identify those persons eligible to possess and acquire firearms and firearm ammunition as part of a public safety initiative in the State of Illinois."

    "Unless specifically exempted by statute, any Illinois resident who acquires or possesses firearm or firearm ammunition within the State must have in their possession a valid Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) card issued in his or her name."


    That sucks - one can't even possess ammo without it...

    For a peson with no previous criminal record he sure got off to a good start.

    It's amazing that someone woulr risk their job and their freedom simply to obtain a gun. It must be a substance abuse problem.

    I'll bet the officer is relieved that his weapon has been recovered.

    Baggage handlers work for TSA now? I guess they are getting out of hand if they've taken over the airlines' and airports' employees too.

    Walk up to airport check-in. Declare gun in checked luggage. Take it over to TSA inspection point (my local one uses oversize bag inspection station). They summon LEO to verify gun.

    Pack it all back up and they throw it on the belt. TSA guy "takes a break", goes into back room and gives a "wink and a nod" to Bob, who handles baggage.

    I don't get what you mean. From start to finish, everyone knows there is a gun in there. Thats why your bag with a gun in it comes out via a baggage handler and not with the other luggage. I BELIEVE (don't recall completely from last time I checked a long gun, which was obvious enough based on the case it was in) that they put some sort of sticker on it, too.

    Since you admitted you don't know what it is, because you call it down, I'll explain it to you: The FOID is your proof that the state has run their criminal background check on you. This is how they strive - obviously, it's not 100% - to keep folks with felony histories, orders of protection against them, etc, from obtaining firearms. It's a way to keep the state from needing to run a check every time a purchase is made, and the fee is negligible ($1 a year).

    It's also only for IL residents. If you, for example, were to come for a visit (and lots do from all over the world, particularly for deer hunting), you would be asked when you buy ammo if you're an IL resident. If not, they're not going to ask for a FOID card.

    I live here, and I have no problem with the FOID program. Obviously, criminals will get guns some way, but if it slows down even a handful, that's a successful program. This, I believe, falls under the "state's power".

    Other places you have to register your firearms with local and/or state authorities. Some places you have to request permission to buy a handgun. Some places you have to have a list of every firearm you own. The FOID does none of these things.




    (sorry to derail the thread, I'm just not a fan of people bashing things they don't really understand....like, say, attacking the TSA for something the baggage handlers did. Why not just save a few steps and say "The Gob'mint did it!!!")

    And some places you don't have to jump through any crazy hoops to buy a gun. :wavey:
