From page 10 of the referenced document.... most of the firearms by a single source coming from Illinois. Proof that the FOID doesn't work.
Hammond Indiana is across State Lines. How does someone with an Illinois FOID or Illinois Driver's license pick up a handgun, tote it across State Lines? You gotta show Government ID at the gun dealer, Gramps.
Let's hear what the BATF&E has to say about such a thing.
"May a licensee sell a firearm to a nonlicensee who is a resident of another state?
Generally, a firearm may not lawfully be sold by a licensee to a nonlicensee who resides in a state other than the state in which the seller’s licensed premises is located. However, the sale may be made if the firearm is shipped to a licensee whose business is in the purchaser’s state of residence and the purchaser takes delivery of the firearm from the licensee in his or her state of residence.
In addition, a licensee may sell a rifle or shotgun to a person who is not a resident of the state where the licensee’s business premises is located in an over–the–counter transaction, provided the transaction complies with state law in the state where the licensee is located and in the state where the purchaser resides."

We'll see if the new gun law passed last week handles this problem. Allegedly it creates a new category of crime called Straw Purchasing. Let's see if it's used on gun runners, or just on dumb people who get their "truck guns" stolen from them.
Alternately, what? Should all 57 States should adopt Illinois's FOID? How is the FOID working for Chicago?
Gun Registration? So that Congress can fuck that up like they fucked up the NFA transfer registry?
