Amended Complaint of Jose Rodriguez with Affidavit of Jose Rodriguez


Plaintiff Jose Rodriguez, in filing his Amended Complaint regarding an issue that has stirred up much controversy between the State of Illinois and the National Rifle Association, respectfully requested that the Illinois Court, Cook County, Illinois, enter an Order as follows:

Enter a finding that Plaintiff it would be contrary to public policy to deny JOSE RODRIGUEZ a FOID card because JOSE RODRIGUEZ has not committed a forcible felony within 20 years, and because JOSE RODRIGUEZ’s lack of criminal history and reputation as an upstanding member of his community were such that he was not likely to act in a dangerous manner.

Enter a finding that the Illinois State Police avoiding exercising his discretion to grant a FOID card to a law-abiding, productive citizen who established his fitness to possess a gun, even though he belonged to one of the enumerated classes ineligible for a license, pursuant to Firearm Owners Identification Card Act, and pursuant to the Federal Gun Control Act of 1968.

Enter a finding that substantial justice has not been done by the denial of the FOID card application of JOSE RODRIGUEZ, which denial has interfered with his enjoyment of the companionship of his family in an activity which is enjoyed by many.

Enter an Order directing Illinois State Police to issue a FOID card to JOSE RODRIGUEZ;

Enter an Order for any other relief that this Honorable deems just and equitable.
