    Guy at work was telling me that you need a permit if you own more then a certain number of firearms. He was unclear if it was federal or state and couldnt recall what the magic number was. I doubt he was correct in thinking so but figured Id ask any of you guys if you knew
     
  2. Unless it's some bizarre state law he was either making it up or uninformed.

    No. Just need a FOID to own one or more.

    i don't remember seeing a restriction of how many you can own here

    "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."


    fucking government needs to stay the fuck away from our right to own guns and people who spread silly rumors to fuck with gun owners should be kicked in the nuts

    Never heard of any such restriction even in IL, but Crook County might be a different story.

    My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw (some 3 letter agency) do something last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

    Tell them to quote the statute number, or to FOAD. I hate people who make up shit that have no idea what they're talking about, or just spread rumors.

    CITE YOUR SHIT, PEOPLE. IT AIN'T THAT HARD.

    My girlfriend's brother had a FBI/DEA/ATF(or whatever) come to his house and question him for purchasing a bunch of AKs. He was buying them for really cheap and selling them. they just wanted to make sure he wasnt part of a gang or selling to underage people.
