Foid Cards for Everyone!

Folks, Iím telliní ya gun laws just donít work. Lets look at Illinois if you will. We have this fancy registration system. You have to have a license to own a gun; itís called a Firearm Owners Identification card (FOID). But what good is it, if they state doesnít monitor it or issues them to anyone that applies and pays their fee. Like say a 10-month-old child? Thatís right, the state of Illinois issued a FOID card to a ten-month-old child.

"Anyone who wants to own a firearm or purchase a firearm needs a FOID card," Ludwig told FOX News. "I applied for one of these for my son. Now ironically he canít buy a gun until heís 18 years old, but if he wants to own one -- which he does thanks to Grandpa -- he needs one of these cards anyhow."

How stupid is that? Lets face it, the state just wants to make money by having us pay ever 5 years to own a firearm. They don't really care who gets the card.

That is just stupid. I don't think we have that here, in Connecticut, YET! I'm sure it is on its way. Sadly, the phrase "shit rolls downhill" applies to stupid things like this too.
