    From everything I've been reading, Tank and his bodyguard/buddy got caught "playing" with guns in the back yard of his upscale suburban McMansion. I'm not clear on whether there were any round fired or not, at this point. When the cops showed up to investigate neither he, nor his now dead bodyguard, had a FOID card.

    The local cops tried to warn and advise him to get a card but they both had a few beers and copped an attitude with a "do you know who I am dude?" posture.

    That was the first instance. As a new resident of the state all he had to do was apply for a FOID card, show up in court with the new card and explain that he didn't know the Illinois law, he was sorry and would be more conscientious in the future.

    They didn't bother to follow through on anything and ignored the summons to appear in court.

    The second time, that involved the forcible entry, was after he had ignored calls to come to the station/couthouse to resolve the issues. Plus his buddy had a long rap sheet, not to speak ill of the dead (he was shot dead in a club the night after the arrests, in an argument over a woman).

    I'm having a real hard time seeing Tank as any kind of victim or cause celebre here. The guy is guilty of believing his own press releases that he's some kind of "special" citizen and the normal laws (like em or not) don't apply to him.

    I think he suffers from "celebrity disease" and thinks the laws just don't apply to him or his friends.

    After a few months in jail, he may learn some humility, but I doubt it.
