Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that the Department of State Police has authority to deny an application for or to revoke and seize a Firearm Owner's Identification Card previously issued under the Act if the Department finds that the applicant or the person to whom the card was issued is or was at the time of issuance a person who has been prescribed an opioid for a continuous period of 91 or more days, provided that the person may establish that he or she is not subject to denial or revocation by submitting a written statement from a physician to the Department demonstrating that the person is not dependent on an opioid.

Those damn opiates (opioids) people OD on.

And they take just to get high on. Lol


I can understand chronic pain. I have it. But it comes and goes.

Im sure they would do the same eventually for medical marijuana. If they haven’t already

I get it. Opiates are definitely a problem...But to deny someone a Constitutionally-protected right over being prescribed them for 3 months?

I know that’s ridiculous


Doctors arent doing a good enough job. Opiates arent for everyone.

Of course. Alcohol is ok though. Im just saying.

Dont get me wrong. I like both and know my limits. Its really just common sense.

I believe one of the questions on applications is have you ever smoked marijuana. If you answer yes, no gun for you.
Gun nazi’s



Like in Seinfeld.


The soup nazi. “No soup for you”. LOL

I am going to say this smells like an ADA lawsuit.

Old people should take note too, I mean imagine having to take oxy for a chronic hip issue or cancer or something similar and then having stateys come by your house to collect your FOID and guns because you didn't fill the paperwork out because you well had cancer.

Guns are bad, mmkay? Even if the Constitution says otherwise. We know better.

Why do you guys vote for these fuckers?

Exactly, just how much proof do they need??
Stupid or leeches, no other reason to ever vote for a liberal!!!

Last week it was marijuana, this week it's pain killers, next week it will be something else.

It's obvious they're just looking for any excuse to take guns from people.

Only thing I would support is taking of foid/guns for people going off their psych meds without doctor support at least for a temporary basis. But that will never be enforced. Would have maybe made some of the mass shootings less probable. (NIU for example).

Anti depressants in general are linked to a lot of people who have done mass shootings but it seems a lot of the country is on them in general in the past 20 years.

I think there's too much medication with too little supervision personally. Meds shouldn't be really given by themselves IMO.

Agree, I'm on 13 prescriptions, yes I'm doing much better, but geesh, do I really need 13???
They were giving me pain meds like candy, I couldn't function, so I cut them in 1/2.
Much much better, but I was worried about being hooked, so now I don't take those, I take non narcotic stuff only.
It hurts like hell, but my brain is much clearer.

I also know all of us should be more worried about POS criminals & brain defects getting weapons,
not some guy that broke a bone, had surgery, was in a car accident etc etc.
These liberals will use any idiotic excuse to get their way.
Doesn't do a damn thing to stop POS criminals & brain defects, but if the Conservatives support it, it's obviously bad!!!!
