To the best of my knowledge, we're the only state that has one. To the best of my knowledge, you are required to have, and present a FOID card at the time of purchase for a muzzleloader, and you must carry it with you when you use one (shooting, hunting, etc). I believe Illinois even classes ML's as firearms. As such, while it may be legal federally, Illinois' basic blanked prohibition on anything Class III/NFA related stands at the state level I believe.

    Basic point, I believe Hellinois is simply more strict that the Feds on this one. While I accept that I may be 100% incorrect in this, I'll wait until our communist Attorney General (Daughter of the longest running State House Speaker in history) weighs in and says that people won't be prosecuted.

    So basically, I'm waiting for ice water in Hell. lol
    Apparently, your legislators hate you.
    When defining a firearm, they were sure to cast the broadest net they could:
    430 ILCS 65/1.1
    "Firearm" means any device, by whatever name known, which is designed to expel a projectile or projectiles by the action of an explosion, expansion of gas or escape of gas; excluding, however:
    (1) any pneumatic gun, spring gun, paint ball gun, or
    B-B gun which expels a single globular projectile not exceeding .18 inch in diameter or which has a maximum muzzle velocity of less than 700 feet per second;
    (1.1) any pneumatic gun, spring gun, paint ball gun,
    or B-B gun which expels breakable paint balls containing washable marking colors;
    (2) any device used exclusively for signalling or
    safety and required or recommended by the United States Coast Guard or the Interstate Commerce Commission;
    (3) any device used exclusively for the firing of
    stud cartridges, explosive rivets or similar industrial ammunition; and
    (4) an antique firearm (other than a machine-gun)
    which, although designed as a weapon, the Department of State Police finds by reason of the date of its manufacture, value, design, and other characteristics is primarily a collector's item and is not likely to be used as a weapon.
    My advice?
    Get out!

    Yes, they do. They see if as serfs/subjects that are only good for providing an (in their view) endless streak of revenue via taxes and fees.

    Sure would hate to have my stuff confiscated, and be out of my hands, while a judge (BULLSHIT) figures it out.
    Alas, I don't have any ML, so I don't have any suppressed ML either.
