Well, SB1966 had nothing to do with "fix" the FOID, either. They're Democrats, they do whatever the heck they want to do, law, procedure and precedent be damned. They'll throw an amendment onto a live bill that has nothing to do with gun control. Geez, look what they've done to the impeachment "process" in D.C.

The rules are whatever The Kahn of Madiganistan says they are.

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

A bill that is up for concurrence, like SB1966 can't be amended but they can gut and replace language in another bill and send it through the process.  So technically a House bill that has passed over to the Senate could be amended and then quickly sent  back over to the House for concurrence.

Thanks for the clarification on that.

So, it's important to keep in contact with your senator and express your opposition to SB1966 and any attempt to circumvent the process.
