    I say we give him a little more slack.

    If ya look at his initial inquiry:

    http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/showthread.php?p=802276#post802276

    You'll see he effectively deleted a couple posts after he was informed about the consequences.

    Then he started this thread.

    To me, it seems like he's trying to do anything he can to figure out what he wants to hear, and he's not getting the answers he wants.

    The truth will set your free, but 1st it will piss you off. I think he's now understanding the truth that the members here have put forth.

    From the ISP website:

    Illinois law (720 ILCS 5/24-9) states "(a) Except as provided in subsection (c), it is unlawful for any person to store or leave, within premises under his or her control, a firearm if the person knows or has reason to believe that a minor under the age of 14 years who does not have a Firearm Owners Identification Card is likely to gain access to the firearm without the lawful permission of the minor's parent, guardian, or person having charge of the minor, and the minor causes death or great bodily harm with the firearm, unless the firearm is:
    (1) secured by a device or mechanism, other than the firearm safety, designed to render a firearm temporarily inoperable; or
    (2) placed in a securely locked box or container; or
    (3) placed in some other location that a reasonable person would believe to be secure from a minor under the age of 14 years.
    (b) Sentence. A person who violates this Section is guilty of a Class C misdemeanor and shall be fined not less than $1,000. A second or subsequent violation of this Section is a Class A misdemeanor.
    (c) Subsection (a) does not apply:
    (1) if the minor under 14 years of age gains access to a firearm and uses it in a lawful act of self-defense or defense of another; or
    (2) to any firearm obtained by a minor under the age of 14 because of an unlawful entry of the premises by the minor or another person."

    So a 14y/o can have a FOID card. I see nothing disingenuous about his prior post.

    He thought it was his right, but didn't bother to dig a little deeper. Now he knows.

    I'd like him to stick around and learn some things. But I don't see that happening.
