So Illinois passed Public Act 102-1116 that went into effect January 1, 2024. Basically, the convoluted language of the bill requires Illinois gun owners to register their “assault weapons,” any .50 caliber rifle or cartridge for said .50 caliber rifle, and “attachments” for their assault weapons which include:

(i) a pistol grip or thumbhole stock;
(ii) any feature capable of functioning as a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand;
(iii) a folding, telescoping, thumbhole, or detachable stock, or a stock that is otherwise foldable or adjustable in a manner that operates to reduce the length, size, or any other dimension, or otherwise enhances the concealability of, the weapon;
(iv) a flash suppressor;
(v) a grenade launcher;
(vi) a shroud attached to the barrel or that partially or completely encircles the barrel, allowing the bearer to hold the firearm with the non-trigger hand without being burned, but excluding a slide that encloses the barrel.

Anyway, all Illinois FOID holders who own said weapons or accessories were to register them online by January 1, 2024. Failure to do so is a Class 2 felony, punishable by 3-7 years in prison.

According to this YouTube video, here’s how that’s going:

So compliance seems to be about 2% at best.

Good on ya, Illinois. I wonder how soon there will be an arrest and prosecution under this law?

And I note, if you don’t possess an Illinois FOID card, but do possess a firearm, you won’t be punished under this law. So the gang-bangers who are doing almost all of the shooting are unaffected by this latest “gun control” measure.
