Call to Action


Witness Slips Needed


Witness Slip Instructions





Witness Slips Filed Prior to 3/1/2015 Must be Filed Again



In our call to action this week, we add 10 new bills to the existing ten bills from last week. Since none of the previously listed bills were heard in committee, witness slips filed for those hearings no longer apply and will need to be redone.

Oppose



HB148 Lost & Stolen Firearms - OPPONENT

Illinois law has required FOID Card holders, but not persons illegally in possession of firearms, to report lost or stolen firearms since the Gun Safety and Responsibility Act became law effective 8/9/2013. HB148 seeks to deny otherwise law abiding citizens their right to own firearms via FOID revocation and felony conviction.




HB265 Firearm Protect Order - OPPONENT

There are many forms of protection order available to the courts in Illinois, from granting occupancy of the family home to giving custody of the family pet to one spouse or another. Of the tools available to a judge a firearm protection order, as it currently exists in law, is one of the most important when determined necessary by a court of competent jurisdiction.

HB265 proposes to subvert the judicial discretion so necessary to our system of governance by prohibiting the subject of an order of protection from purchasing or transporting a firearm, even when that order is simply in regard to animals, property, and a number of other orders unrelated to a physical threat against the petitioner.

While enough to oppose on its own merits, HB265 also creates a frightening potential synergy when taken in context with HB399 Protection Order Issuance. Though not the subject of the current call to action HB399 proposes to empower the States Attorney, and courts on their own motion, to impose an order of protection on behalf of a petitioner even against the petitioner's wishes. This combination of ill conceived legislation, both bad in their own right, establishes an untenable system of potential rights denial under the most unusual of circumstances.




HB359 Firearm Concealed Carry Signs - OPPONENT

Inverts the signage requirement. Establishes a precedent of allowing private property owners to passively deny the exercise of all civil rights under color of law.




HB419 Firearm Concealed Carry Prohibit Place - OPPONENT

Adds places licensed under the Video Gaming Act as prohibited locations, including fraternal & veterans establishments, and truck stops, whether or not alcohol is served. Changes privilege to post a location any person lawfully in possession and control. Changes private residences to presumptively prohibited.




HB1405 FOID Act Private Sales - OPPONENT

Prohibits private sales of concealable firearms




HB1442 Firearm Concealed Carry Bar - OPPONENT

Prohibits carry at any establishment serving liquor. Establishes penalties for failure to post.




HB1467 3D Firearms Prohibit - OPPONENT

Prohibits use of printers for firearm manufacture




HR140 Urge GA Explosive Law - OPPONENT

Urges the General Assembly to adopt a law similar to Virginia Code Title 18.2, Chapter 5, Section 18.2-85

Removes dangerous unloading requirement from safe harbor parking lot provision




HB367 Concealed Carry Public Transit - PROPONENT

HB483 Crim Cd Firearm Waiting Period - PROPONENT

HB1411 FOID Possess Conceal Carry License - PROPONENT

Elimates need to physically posses a FOID when an FCCL is physically possessed




HB1427 Concealed Carry Gathering - PROPONENT

Eliminates the prohibition on carry at a public gathering or special event




HB1428 Concealed Carry DOT Rest Area - PROPONENT

Permits a licensee to carry in rest areas

If you haven't created a log in yet, you seek misery and love data entry. That is an even 20 bills mauserme has linked there. I am quite certain it took me less than 2 minutes to file those.

Lol, I'm gonna have to take a look at that.  I literally type them all in manually lmfao.  I can type 50 words per minute though so it's not horrible, but I'd rather not.

Completed the pile again.


One persons paranoia is another persons situational awareness.

Maybe it is time to remove immunity from all public officials and be able to hold them fully accountable for their actions.

Done again X2. Sure would be nice if they would be good the entire time but I am guessing our side is the only ones fired up enough to keep doing it every time it is needed.

Can someone explain to me why it is necessary to clog up this very important topic with dozens of followup posts indicating you have filed the witness slips?

 

Like the Nike shoe ad says - Just do it!

 

PS - just to conform with tradition I filed all 20 witness slips!!
