I had to google that - if it's what I found I'm pretty sure that wasn't on the sponsor's mind.

 

Good bill, though.  You're right about that.

Yeah I am sure it was not on the sponsors mind whatsoever. Either very unfortunate luck or someone who assigns the bill numbers getting very cute.

This seems silly but as part of Freshman orientation for all new State Senators and Reps...how about they put on some classes about basic economics, basics of firearms, transportation, taxation, industry, farming. Like two weeks of stuff to make sure they grasp the basic concepts behind things they are trying to regulate and legislate.

Patriots and Tyrants I like that idea, but I would suggest that be taught for years in school so that by the time they run for office not only they know this information but the voters as well

You guys mean, for instance, a class called “government” and one called “economics”? Aren’t those still 2 required classes for a basic high school diploma?

I went to High School in Florida so I can't comment on the IL system however my basic Economics class was terrible. The Government class basically focused on the three branches, checks and balances, the 1st Amendment, Prohibition, Womens voting and civil rights.

When do we get to the point where we start filing witness slips?

 

Also, is it possible to include a statement with witness slips that can be read into the record when the legislation is discussed? Surely, being heard from citizens whom the government works for  is something that is provided for.

I try to keep an eye open.

 

Give me your take but maybe all of us should give any rep introducing pro gun legislation a thank you call or e mail.

Good idea. They get so many complaints about things a nice "thank you" would be a breath of fresh air.

I dont understand why the limit to handguns and not include rifles (unless that gets covered in the NFA part). Also why not allow in homes instead of just range as thats where a DGU and hearing protection would seem more likely needed.

At least it would be a start but dont believe we are anywhere close to getting something like we were a couple of years ago.

Weird...SB numbers jumped from 259 to 736 skipping all in between. Maybe a bunch of incoming shell bills?

Never mind, I see they have made a change removing SB0736 and going back to consecutive bill numbers but did indeed file a boat load of shell bills today.

Cant imagine Madigan lets it get to or out of committee and dont think there are enough downstate Dems to put that pressure on him to do so. Nevertheless Im glad to see the Pro side keeps trying. Much opposition is based on uneducated Chicago Dems and their fears not to mention believing what they see in movies. 42 other states allow them and its not causing problems there just like there were no issues with CCL but IL had to be last.

If they fail to read it thoroughly then the chances are quite good. The beginning 2/3rd's of it sounds like the usual anti nonsense.

Pass it to see what's in it. lol

Dont want to give them any ideas here. Although its not like they always read the bills they sponsor or vote on. They see silencer bill by a R and its an automatic no I am sure.

FYI my hb1626 allows suppressors. It’s basically the same bill that passed the house and almost passed the senate until Raoul killed it 5 years ago.
