Call to Action

 

Phone Calls & Witness Slips Needed

 
 
 
Thanks to your past efforts, SB1524 Concealed Carry Military is now eligible for a vote in the full Illinois Senate!   This is the bill to allow military personnel permanently stationed in Illinois the same right to protect themselves and their families that others living in Illinois now possess.  We hope to bring this bill to a vote in the Illinois Senate soon.
 
 

Phone Calls Needed!

 

Support SB1524 Concealed Carry Military

 
Beginning Friday, April 21, please call your State Senators to show your support for this bill.  Politely ask them to Vote Yes on SB1524.   Explain to them the importance of giving back to those who have dedicated themselves to our safety, by dedicating themselves to supporting SB1524 Concealed Carry Military.
 
Special Instructions for Forum Members:  Please send me or Molly B a private message if your senator has indicated their postion on SB1524.
 

Oppose SB1657 Gun Dealer Licensing

 
Also eligible for a vote in the Senate next week is SB1657 Gun Dealer Licensing, a bill meant to close specifically targeted gun stores in the Chicago area and make operation of gun stores elsewhere difficult to impossible.  This bill is filled with unspecified fees and exorbitant fines, as well as invasions of the privacy of every gun store patron in Illinois.
 
While speaking with your state Senator or their staff, tell them that you oppose SB1657.  Ask them to Vote No on SB1657, should it come to a vote.
 

Contact information can be found here.

 
 
 
 

Witness Slips Needed!

 
A final item of concern in the coming week is HB2541 Gun Dealer Licensing, which is scheduled to be heard in committee the afternoon of Monday, April 24, 2017.
 
This bill mirrors the Senate dealer lcensing bill mentioned above.  If passed out of committee it will give the anti-gun forces a second chance at this onerous legislation, should they fail in the Senate.  We must make every effort to keep this bill safely in committee by filing witness slips against it.

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.

Everyone is calling their Illinois senator to oppose SB1657 Gun Dealer Licensing too right?


Mayor Bloomberg himself has recently turned his attention from oversize soft drinks to gun control, confirming the tendency of the Progressive to go from nanny to tyrant.

And good job on calling Harmon.  Some people just give up on their anti-2A legislators, I know its frustrating but I think we should keep letting the antis know what we think...

My senator's administrative assistant said that they're voting on SB1657 Gun Dealer Licensing this coming Tuesday, that's enough time to send some e-mails, and I always call again the day of the actual vote, because I've found that the admins start a little tally of the calls the day of - I'm not sure if they add in the calls and e-mails from previous days - IDK. but I do know they keep a simple tally of the calls they got that morning leading up to the vote and they give it to the senator before he goes to the Senate Floor.

Done.  We have more than the antis at the moment, but that could change.  Make sure to let others know about this. :)
