Maybe this is why.
Court records show that Ford was a felon who previously lived in Miami and was on probation with a series of convictions in Florida, including burglary in 2000.
He had a criminal record stretching back to October 1996, when he was charged with carrying a concealed firearm when he was 18 years old, the records showed.
Then he went on a shooting spree in a gun free zone less than two hours after getting an OOP against him. Now
Mostly we say "What law would have stopped
A bill is being pushed in Illinois that completely violates due process. An 'Intimate partner' or police can file an OOP against a gun owner w/o their knowledge and strip them of their right to own a firearm. The local police can then come and confiscate their guns. All onus is put on the 'respondent' to prove their innocence, get their FOID back and recover their guns. If the gun owner 'fails to respond' or 'can't be located', the police can keep the guns and do what they want w/ them.
Anyone see any chance of abuse of this one?
