What is a FOID card in Illinois

I was looking on You Tube and saw that a Illinois judge ruled that a FOID card was unconstitutional. Can someone tell me what a FOID card is and what is the purpose of it.

Firearm Owners Identification Card. Itís so the Commies know where to go to confiscate your guns. Itís called Registration, and should be classified as Unconstitutional.

A F.O.I.D. card is a card that gives you permission to practice your 2nd amendment right in the state of Illinois. Without it you can't own or buy a gun or ammo. You have to apply to the Illinois state police and pay a fee for it.

We might not be the freest state as far as 2A goes, but we certainly are heads and shoulders above California, New Jersey, and New York. The FOID gives permission to buy and own firearms and ammunition. In my opinion, it has never really had any real use. Folks with CCW don't even need it (as the CCW gives the same permissions that the FOID card does).

Permissions? Itís a right I donít need government permission. Never did agree on the so Called FOID cards. If it was ever taken by the Supreme Court it would probably be ruled unconstitutional.
