    During my time working with Bass Pro Shop, I got to spend some time assisting with firearm sales at the Hammond, Indiana and Portage, Indiana Cabela's stores... They absolutely required a FOID card to be shown with ALL sales to anyone who had IL residency.... Roughly 20% of all firearm sales at these stores were to IL residents.

    One in probably 10 "tire kickers" was an IL resident who was shocked to see that this was required. Before showing the firearm, we would ask where the customer lived. We would also work the fact that an IL FOID card was required into ALL sales conversations. Basically as a seller, it was to cover my own *** with this stuff. Many sales people were much more lax with this stuff as they felt that it was "up to the customer to know".

    There was a ton of misconceptions about what people thought the rules were vs what they actually were. And that is the biggest issue with the 2nd Amendment...

This is where Michael Jordan owned his house. Where Cubs and Bears players live. Where every John Hughes film in "Chicago" is filmed or based upon.

      This isn't a "Chicago" problem, it's a gun problem.

            Bethany: What exactly brought you to Illinois?
            Jay: See, all these movies take place in this small town called Shermer, Illinois, where the honeys are top-shelf, but all the dudes are whiny pu**ies except for Judd Nelson; he was fu**ing harsh. But best of all, there's no one dealin', man. Then it hits me, we could live like fat rats if we're the blunt collection in Shermer, Illinois! So we collected some money we were owed, and caught a bus. You know what the fu** we found out when we got there? There is no Shermer in Illinois. Movies are fu**ing bullsh**.
            As for the Fuck Weinstein comment, Kevin Smith had a deal with Miramax (Disney) to distribute the film, but the Catholic League got all hot and heavy on Disney over the content in Dogma. So Disney got cold feet. So the rights for US distribution got moved to Lionsgate for theaters. Home movie sales were handled by Sony (then Columbia). It had a re-issue on Blu-Ray in 2008, but that was the last it was seen. The rights to the entire thing were bought personally by Bob and Harvey Weinstein. Their deal pre-dates streaming, and they won't give up the streaming rights (plus the fact Harvey is in prison for a couple decades).

                  This is EXACTLY a main problem....

                  Management danced a fine line between ticking off customers with this and actually doing their due diligence. And this straight up ticked me off as someone who is Pro-Gun, but also believes that we need to uphold the rules/laws and accept responsibility with firearms...

                  Again, Joe Six Pack simply doesn't respect the responsibility that owning a gun requires...

                  Every Black Friday it would be a huge issue with whatever ammo mega-deal BassPro/Cabela's had as there was a hard limit on whatever (usually 1-2 boxes/person). There would ALWAYS be the pair of people that would come up to the register together and place double the limit down on the counter and would say that one person would cover BOTH purchases... And then the customer(s) would inevitably flip out when asked to produce BOTH of their FOID cards...

                  Seeing how pervasive the willful ignorance is within the US is infuriating....

                              Took a while. It's not as if we can rely on the "good guy" to stop much.

                                You must love being wrong, since you're wrong an awful lot. The media is playing up the good guy with a gun angle plenty. I'm seeing a 5h!t-ton of tweets being quoted from every statewide elected politicians, all of them being absolutely in love with the "good guy with a gun" angle. I'm seeing it mentioned prominently in both local and national outlets.

                                What would be better is if all of these media accounts play up all of the things that are true and accurate about what happened. Like why do we even need "good guys with guns" at our shopping malls. Why are we the only nation that goes through this on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis? Well we know the answer to that question, it is because there are idiots who vote for awful senators who don't really care about actually defending people.

                                Yeah, it's hunky-dory that only three people were needlessly shot down dead before Rambo had luck on his side (and maybe training and courage too) and put an end to the carnage. I'm guessing this Rambo was white too, or we would have heard about the tragic circumstances where police mistook a good guy with a gun for the bad guy with a gun. Hopefully the lib t ards in the media play that angle up sufficiently too, right Drew?

                                What a piece of 5h!t country to live in where the only way this will ever stop is if one of these days the mass shooter gets into the Senate and guns down about 50 of the right senators. How about the media play up THAT angle, Drew?
