Is Chicago’s Gun Confiscation Underway?

By Editor-in-Chief on August 7, 2013 Illinois Conservative Examiner

Gun control advocates think only a conspiracy theorist would believe that confiscation of firearms follows gun registration. “No one’s coming for your guns,” they say with a wry smile. As we know, registration is simply a way for the authorities to keep track of all “law-abiding” gun-owners so that when the time comes, they know where to go to take away people’s self-defense weapons. Criminals, by their very definition, are exempt from such rules. –

As you may recall, Illinois just enacted a court-ordered concealed carry law. But that’s not stopping Cook County, in which Chicago resides, to follow through with gun confiscation orders:

Rahm-Emanuel“A new Cook County Sheriff’s team is crisscrossing the suburbs to seize guns from thousands of people whose Firearm Owner’s Identification Cards have been revoked. More than 3,000 people in Cook County have failed to surrender their revoked FOID cards to the state. Sheriff Tom Dart said he thinks many of them continue to possess firearms… Every week, the [Illinois] State Police alert the sheriff’s gun team of about 10 to 20 new revocations in Cook County. The investigators conduct a basic inquiry into the gun purchasing histories of the people they intend to contact. Then they knock on their doors This is what happens when people fall for the gun control mantra of “keeping guns out of the wrong hands.” That sounds good and reasonable at face value, but we have to take into consideration what is meant by “wrong hands.”

A drug crime could get your FOID card revoked. But seeing a mental health professional could also nullify your 2nd Amendment rights, because they would consider that having a “history of mental illness.” And a restraining order placed against you, whether justified or not, is enough to have your license to own a gun invalidated.

  1. If they outlaw guns, then only outlaws will have guns!
    GUN CONTROL is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars!
