Carbondale to reconsider gun transportation codes
...brought to attention during discussion of Senate Bill 2104

After being pegged as a city with restrictive firearm transportation laws, Carbondale will reconsider its codes as they refer to the transportation of guns.

Three clarifying clauses could be added to the city ordinances as they pertain to the carrying of firearms and will bring the city in line with State of Illinois protocol. The original 1973 Carbondale city code prohibited the carrying of a concealed firearm in a vehicle. In 1989, the code was rewritten based on state law, but omitted exceptions to the rule.

The council will consider Tuesday the exceptions unintentionally left out in 1989 - that weapons must be broken down in a non-functioning state; or are not immediately accessible; or are unloaded and enclosed in a case or other container, by a person who possess a valid FOID card.

Looks like we are making some headway here.

not really, we in Illinois have to have a vaild FOID card to legally own firearms, and buy ammo. you have apply for your FOID card with the IL State police, they run a background check on you. then after a few weeks you get your FOID, the IL FOID card is also a picture ID. so it has your pic on it. it is good for five years, then you have to get it renewed.

and like I said you have to show your FOID card the the store just to buy ammo.

and having a valid FOID card does not affect any waiting period for buying a firearm.

The FOID card is just another way for the state of IL to keep it's boot on the necks of the subjects of IL.

Welcome to Pistolworld John!

I've done a little reading on the FOID card since I last responded to this post and I have to agree with you. It is sickening that the government can have this much control over our constitutionally guaranteed "right".

Right now I live in the big city of Glendale. I was born & raised in Eddyville. Both of these villages are in Pope County.

Oh ok, I've heard of Eddyville. I guess born and raised in the Benton /Sesser are wasn't exactly on point, I just don't consider where my folks made me go to high school at as having much to do with my life.

You'll have to grab your shotgun and meet us at the Rend Lake Shooting Complex if we have a So IL shoot this year.

MarlandS,
Your last post made me look in my safe where I got a terrible shock, I don't currently own a wingshooting shotgun! I've got a deer shotgun and 2 turkey guns along with several rifles and pistols. I've got to do something about that.

OMG!!! You don't have a Bird shooting shotgun?? How are you able to function on a day to day basis? Do you often find yourself leaving the house without pants?? ;)

Here's to hoping that miscalculation in your inventory get's rectified real soon. :D

I'm not much of a bird hunter. Used to quail hunt some, but all the quail are gone in my area. I will admit I feel abused because I don't own a bird gun, but my wife doesn't see it that way. She made me promise not to buy a new shotgun for a year when I bought my new turkey gun 03-06-2006. I'm SOL until 03-06-2007 for shotguns. I guess I could press my Nova into use as a bird gun, it just doesn't handle like an upland gun. I guess it doesn't matter cause I haven't seen any quail around here in 20 years or more.
:cry:

Yeah some areas down there are devoid of any quail to speak of, generally it seems where turkey numbers are higher the quail numbers are lower.

That and unemployment rates , I remember when the mines all shut down around Benton and Sesser several years back, orange everywhere you looked and quail and rabbit numbers were low.

I wish I knew what happened to the quail. When I was a kid, we used to jump 10-12 coveys out of the hay field. All the sudden, they disappeared :cry: .
Turkey numbers seem to be down a little. Must be the increase in bobcats around here.
