Yesterday, the Governor vetoed SB1657 Gun Dealer Licensing. IllinoisCarry would like to extend our sincere thanks to Mr. Rauner for this difficult, yet well reasoned decision as well as to our members who offered their support and encouragement.

In the Senate, HB1465 Assault Weapon Age 21, HB1467 Bump Stock/Trigger Crank Ban, and HB1468 Assault Weapon 72 Hours were approved for consideration. They were subsequently added to the calendar and were moved to 3rd reading.

Later in the day, Senate Amendment 1 was filed on HB1465 allowing an affirmative defense for possession of "assault weapons" under limited circumstances, and Senate Amendment 1 was filed on HB1467 changing a bump stock bill that might have been able to pass into law, to now become everything-but-the-kitchen-sink anti-gun political theater. These amendments were given a subject matter hearing with SB2314 "Assault Weapons - Municipality (Preemption) and SB2317 Crim Cd - Trigger Modification. All of these actions have been added to the calendar below.


SB2561 Pre-Package Explosive Component has been removed for now, as it passed out of the Senate for consideration on the House.



The Senate is scheduled for 10:00 AM today. The House is not in.


Next Days Scheduled

House: 4/9/2018 @ 12:00 Noon
Senate: 3/15/2018 4/10/2018 @ 12:00 Noon

I am SO riled about the Affirmative Defense amendment.  I am sick and freaking tired of our diotic legislators never ending attempts to make law abiding citizens into criminals WHILE not doing a damn thing against actual criminals.

 

If we have to raise the buying limit to 21 (and yes, 100% against that), then do that.  Then freaking exempt handling while supervised by a parent or over 21 foid holder, being in the same vehicle with, if the over 21 foid holder is there, or in the house of the owner, etc, etc

I think they are going to take time and try to sway votes. Therefore we need to take the same time and try to reinforce votes, and sway votes outselves. Phone calls and emails.

Out of curiosity, I know the Governor has 60 days (I believe) to sign and/or veto a bill put on his desk.  What is the time limitation on when a veto override vote has to occur?  Anyone know?

Don't you realize, this is their strategy?

They'll throw a bad bill out there. Then they'll throw a even worse bill out there. They'll have you begging for the bad bill! They do this and it works every time.

Same thing as when I cop "I'll be nice this time and only write you one ticket." You're not p***** you got a ticket, you're happy you didn't get three. 

We gotta quit falling for it. Not one more inch. These age restrictions are arbitrary. What's next? 25? then 27? 

You can not placate a crocodile who wants you eat you whole, by offering one finger. it won't be satisfied with your finger, and will want your arm next. The crocodile will not be satisfied until you are eaten whole. That is what we are dealing with when it comes to gun control.

If they want to raise the age to 21, make it legal majority for everything just to be consistent.
21 for alcohol, tobacco, firearms, and VOTING. How many of them would support that?
If they aren't mature enough to be trusted with a firearm then they shouldn't be trusted to make reasonable decisions in the. Voting booth.

Affirmative Defense is a tricky way to still make it illegal but appear to be "compromising" without actually doing so.  It still means that the teen is charged with a felony, gets arrested, and has to pay for a lawyer and go to trial.  That is a far cry from a real exemption.

10 AM still the plan for the senate?  I don't have any audio/video yet of the senate

They are broadcasting their "walk out" right now.

 

 I can't tell you how pleased I am to see my tax dollars funding this nonsense!

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.

The Senate is in recess, presumably for the purpose of caucuses on both sides.

Is today the day they will try to over ride the veto on SB 1657 ? I don't think they have the votes to do a 3/5 ths. on it. would LOVE to watch this fall apart.

I think they are going to take time and try to sway votes. Therefore we need to take the same time and try to reinforce votes, and sway votes outselves. Phone calls and emails.

 

 

Out of curiosity, I know the Governor has 60 days (I believe) to sign and/or veto a bill put on his desk.  What is the time limitation on when a veto override vote has to occur?  Anyone know?

 

After the veto, they have 15 calendar days to over ride it.

In an unsurprising move, the Senate Assignments committee approved for consideration Senate Amendment 1 to HB1465 Assault Weapon Age 21 and Senate Amendment 1 to HB1467 Bump Stock/Trigger Crank Ban

Any one taking odds on the House reconvening (in a special session?) to override?

Thanks.  So the House isn't back in till April 9th, more than 15 days away.  Does this mean that they will have to have an "emergency" session to handle?   Appreciate the insights into our judicial process.

So follow up to a question you answered for me yesterday, as these are amendments to bills; Do they have to wait another calendar day before being called for vote, or because they are amendments to bills already approved for consideration; Can they be called today for vote?
