A double subject post from a similar concept.
It turns out the Illinois State Police (ISP) are refusing FOIA requests on Steven Kazmierczak, the NIU shooter's FOID card including refusing to answer any questions on it even after the AG's office recommended the information be released.
Now this could be just a case of the ISP following standard procedure as FOID information is normally kept confidential or this could be a CYOA move in that Kaz.. did not need to check the mental health box in that his incarceration was past five years ( the requirement for a FOID) but we all know how well the media is on reporting facts when they want a spin on a story.
Now will this lead to the media demanding access to FOID information and attempting to publish lists of holders similar to the attempts to publish CCW lists? I have no doubt. The anti's like Dan Kotowski have repeatedly shown that they'll do anything to push their agenda so what is a little privacy violation to them?
