Welcome aboard and my condolences on your current address.  But then there ain't much of IL that ain't struggling with the gun grabbers.  

Hope to see you out at our new range in Winnebago.  Good group of guys to hook up with as I see your number is relatively new.  Don't be afraid to ask the questions that all new cowboy shooters have.  We'll try to help where ever we can.   :good:

Almost forgot,  a word of warning, they seem to pick on guys with the name of "Jim" or maybe it's just my winning personality.   :whistling:

Welcome aboard! And don't worry about the "Jim" part - we only harass **** like JJ.

?So where the heck to do you keep your weapons. I believe last time I looked, Wilmette was one of the really nasty towns that didn't allow ANY ownership of guns (like Chicago, which has become a beacon of peacefulness after that move).

Thanks to everone for the warm welcome... as to the Wilmette "question's".... the Village discoverd a thing called the 2nd Amentment (this all came to a head after the SAME home was invaded TWICE by the SAME burglar and the homeowner shot the burglar on the second attempt)! After all the national & international "press" the State of Illinois passed a law that pre-empted all local anti-gun laws when guns are used in home defense. Add the fact that the law is a ordance, the upcoming Supreme Court case in spring and it appears that most such laws are in deep doo-doo. Santa Fe Jim

I hope you're right.  

You just never know with a bunch of judges, not to mention it will take years for the court battles locally to put down the remainder of all the crap that's on the books in various municipalities.

It's always good when the good guys win one. Still, one should worry about this upcoming Supreme Court case. As JJ said, we are talking about a bunch of unelected judges, many of whom have had visions of grandeur in their heads. What is pretty much obvious to most regular people somehow becomes "issue" with a judge.

I like the opinion that was written by the 3rd circuit, but unfortunately, it isn't quite what is facing the Supreme court.
