Let the Games Begin


 
The final ten days of legislative session will bring a whole host of political theatrics, tricks, pitfalls, and behind the scene maneuvers.  The usual anti-Second Amendment crowd on the Democrat side of the aisle has been bolstered by the defection of suburban Republicans Sen. Chris Nybo, Sen. Tom Rooney, Sen. John Curran, Rep. David Olson, Rep. Steve Andersson and others.  If they don’t hold the line on further infringements to our rights, we are in danger of losing a lot of ground this session.  If you live in a suburban area and you value your Second Amendment rights, contact your legislators NOW and remind them they represent you and you are demanding they protect your rights! They are being bombarded by national anti-gun groups like Moms Demand Action, groups that want to force their New York born anti-gun agenda on our local legislators . We must make our voices heard louder than theirs!
 
We want to thank Gov. Rauner for looking out for gun owners and stripping the ‘assault’ weapons language out of HB1468 with his Amendatory Veto.  That AV is waiting for the General Assembly to approve or reject. In the meantime, Rep. Carroll has introduced SB2580 that mirrors the Gov.’s AV and a subject-matter only committee hearing will be held on Monday and Wednesday. “Subject matter only” means the bill will  be discussed but not voted on in committee. This might provide an opportunity for further changes to the language which we hope will occur and will speak on, as the opportunity arises.

 
Join us today in fighting against another attempt to close Illinois gun stores, SB337. This bill would impose an entire set of requirements and costs many stores cannot bear. It calls for another level of bureaucracy and higher costs on the dealers, and gives the authorizing agency broad, undefined enforcement authority.

 
Join us in fighting yet another bid to make felons of law abiding gun owners, SB2387. If this bill passes and you follow the instructions on the back of your FOID card when selling/trading a firearm to another lawful buyer who presents their FOID card, you could be convicted of a felony. Upwards of a million or more FOID cards do not instruct FOID holders to verify the buyer’s FOID card through the Illinois State Police verification portal or phone number. SB2387 would make it a felony for failing to do this. Hundreds of thousands of FOID card holders could unknowingly commit a felony act simply by following the instructions on their FOID card. Senator Morrison' unrelenting contempt for gun owners is no more evident than in this bid to make us felons, and no longer eligible to own firearms. Oppose SB2387!

 
Join us in the remaining days of the Spring Session to ensure our continuing fight to keep our rights does not falter.

On 5/25/2017, Superintendent Eddie Johnson predicted a 50% reduction is Chicago violence within 3 years of SB1722 becoming law.  The bill was signed into law on 6/23/2017. The clock is now ticking.

They feel no shame about having gun control activists from California and New York file witness slips.

 

If we did the same thing with all gun owner nation-wide we could easily get 1 million witness slips, but then in typical gun-grabber hypocritical fashion, they'd call out the fact that most of those witness slips were from outside of Illinois.


“Most gun control arguments miss the point. If all control boils fundamentally to force, how can one resist aggression without equal force? How can a truly “free” state exist if the individual citizen is enslaved to the forceful will of individual or organized aggressors?
 
 It cannot.”

I'm not able to post to other forums right now, but if anyone else is able to - now would be the time.
