This case is an appeal by the Illinois Attorney General of a case from White County Illinois, where a Circuit Judge ruled that the FOID Card requirement was unconstitutional.  Ms. Brown had a single shot .22 rifle for self-defense but did not have a FOID Card.  She was not otherwise a prohibited person. The ISRA is assisting MS Brown in her defense. There are nearly 2,300,000 FOID Card holders in Illinois and at last count there were only 25,858 Illinois State Rifle Association members.
