    Trip to the range leads to imprisonment/confiscation

    https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/...fse-story.html

    Cliff's Notes:
    College student arrested and held without bail, firearms in possession and at residence confiscated.
    Charges filed for violating 430 ILCS 66/65 carrying on school property. (IANAL, but this reads as K-12 to me as college is specifically mentioned elsewhere)

    A "friend" makes one phone call to police, with feelings that the student was "acting strange" and here come the police.
    News article above says the police saw a 9mm handgun tucked between the seat & console. In a college parking lot.




    It's not clear to me what law the judge was reading when this was allowed, nor what the prosecutor was reading when charges were filed.

    But, it doesn't appear that any actual laws need to be broken or have any harmful intent in order for the State to take your guns, charge you with a felony, throw you in the slammer and hold you without bail.

    So does this bring up a point that you shouldn't let others know anything about yourself or what you like to do that way they can't use it against you?????{friend that shoots with you cancels and calls you in because of a shooting in california?}

    I'm going to assume that the friend wasn't a gun owner and was triggered by the news of the California shooting and thought OMG my classmate has guns. Unfortunately he had them on school property. State or private college? Illegal? Felony charge? Could be a legal gun grab. It doesn't sound fair but if he's charged with a felony he might not see them for a while. No felony and no ill intent, bad grab.

    With the introduction of the PC mindset we empowered the wimps to ride herd on us. With the red flag laws it is much the same thing.

    This is exactly the kind of pervasive narc culture that is inseparable from the left. Just like Stalinism, can't go anywhere, do anything, or speak freely without somebody making a phone call and having you disappeared.

    depends on state and county laws. Of which i don't now them. BUT To my last knowledge, in Indiana you can carry on a college campus, its just against the rules of the college. Indiana law carves out k-12 only.

    (yes i know its Illinois and not Indiana)
