Default Illinois Circuit Judge Rules FOID Card Unconstitutional

Didn't see an existing thread about this topic.

In February 2018, a White County, IL Second Judicial Circuit Court judge ruled Illinois Firearms Owners Identification Card Act unconstitutional. Eight months later, after pleadings and motions to reconsider the initial decision, the judge not only reaffirmed his original decision, but supplemented it. Now,’s spokeswoman Valinda Rowe claims that the Illinois Attorney General will take the case to the Illinois Supreme Court.

The case began with the March 2017 arrest of a now-divorced, 4′ 11″ fifty-something woman for the high crime of possessing a single-shot .22 rifle for self-defense. Obviously, she’s not exactly Bonnie Parker of Bonnie and Clyde fame. She failed to have a FOID card for her rifle, despite eligibility to receive one. In February 2018, a White County judge ruled the FOID Act unconstitutional.

In this case the facts show the defendant possessed a gun, in her house, for the purpose of self-defense without a FOID card. To require the defendant to fill out a form, provide a picture ID and pay a $10 fee to obtain a FOID card before she can exercise her constitutional right to self-defense with a firearm is a violation of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution as applied to the States and a violation of Article I, Section 22, of the Constitution of the State of Illinois, as applied to this case only.
I'm hopeful, but I doubt this case is as big as people are making it out to be. The ruling was very narrow and only applied to that particular case and only "in the home".

Been following this on Illinoiscarry.

If you read the case, the FOID card act basically states that if you have a gun anywhere in the house, and those living in the house know about it/are aware of it, EVERYONE in that house MUST have a FOID card to be legal, accordingly to the law as written. Which to the lawyers (and the judge apparently) it is impossible to satisfy that part of the FOID act and is thus unconstitutional, for many different reasons the main one being the tax/fee to exercise a right.

Here's the IC post:

The obvious answer is more common sense gun laws.
