The Associated Press has apparently convinced the Illinois Attorney General that the names of FOID holders are a matter of public record. Full details from AP themselves, who are tediously picky about copyright and will therefore not be quoted here (I'll replace the link with a non-AP-content one if I can find it; IMO they're jerks on so many, many levels). But you may interested to learn which .il.gov entity disagrees. --Here's a TV news story with the basic info. And a bit of local opinion from the Quad Cities area.
AP and the IL AG: Helping move guns from the law-abiding to criminals. Awwww. They care about the underprivileged!
