    Strange things happening in Illinois.My friends back east alerted me to this one and can be found at IllinoisCarry.com.

    A Cook County judge found that a teen charged with AGG UUW/No FOID had his rights violated because he was too young to apply for a FOID card,and,that the penalties were too harsh and found the UUW charge Unconstitutional on face value.Charges reduced to a class A Misdemeanor.

    Anything found un-constitutional in Illinois automatically gets appealed to the Illinois Supreme Court for final ruling.

    AGG UUW = Aggrevated Unlawful Use of a Weapon. This is the statute in Illinois that applies when somebody is found to be unlawfully possessing a loaded gun. It is a felony.

    FOID = Firearm Owner's Identification. This is a card (like a Driver's License) that all persons in Illinois must have in order to possess firearms.
