HB0687 Firearm owner Identification card public liability insurance in the amount of 1,000,000.00. This needs to be watched in my opinion.


Mac


It sure as bloody heck does--thanks. I don't remember them trying this particular insanity before.


I see you guys beat me to the punch on HB0687. This could be one of the most dangerous bills out there IMHO.

Since this state is the capital of slip-n-fall attorneys, HB0687, is more about attorney job security then anything else.

In motorcycling its said there are two kinds of riders-

Those that have gone down and those that will.

I'm looking at the bills the same way, either they're anti-gun or they can be changed to become one.

So as far as I'm concerned all bills are shell bills.

Yes, that makes looking at each one over and over very tedious but we have good reason to do so.

Art Turner has been known in the past to be anti-gun rights.

http://reparthurturner.com/issues.html

Turner is dedicated to reducing gun violence and he has already passed a law to close the gun shoe loophole that was a major source of guns for gangs and now he is working to pass an assault weapons ban to get dangerous weapons off our streets.

Gun shows a "major source of guns for gangs?" Not according to the BATFE.

'Course he has no idea what a "gun show loophole" or an "assault weapon" is, either ... but that doesn't matter now, does it?



Its not the "gun show loophole" he's trying to close, its the gun SHOE loophole. I guess the gangbangers must be wearing semi-auto Nikes. :thumbsup:

Yeah, but you should have seen ol' Art at the Sparta shooting grounds last summer at the "Legislative Sportsmen's Caucus" I attended there. He was a grinnin' and glad handin' everyone just like he was the next great saviour of all second amendment rights. IIRC, he and his brother had an old Winchester 97 that they were going over to trap range to shoot. Family heirloom or some such stuff.

Does the word hypocrite fit here???

What are these 'shell' bills?

A shell bill is just a place holder for something else that will eventually be inserted. Legislators often use these bills to try and sneak a bill in during the amendment process that would have garnered a lot of opposition if people knew what it really was.

HB 0172 firearms preemption

So am i right in assuming this one would get rid of all the mishmash of city and county restrictions and revert back to the "regular" if you will, state firearms code?

Read carefully.

430 ILCS 65/13.1) (from Ch. 38, par. 83-13.1)
7 Sec. 13.1. Municipal regulation; county regulation
8 preempted.
9 (a) The provisions of any ordinance enacted by any
10 municipality which requires registration or imposes greater
11 restrictions or limitations on the acquisition, possession and
12 transfer of firearms than are imposed by this Act, are not
13 invalidated or affected by this Act
.
14 (:lol: A county, including a home rule county, may not require
15 registration of firearms or impose greater restrictions or
16 limitations on the acquisition, possession, transportation,
17 carrying, and transfer of firearms, firearm attachments, and
18 firearm ammunition than are imposed by this Act and the
19 Criminal Code of 1961
. This Section is a denial and limitation
20 under subsection (i) of Section 6 of Article VII of the
21 Illinois Constitution on the concurrent exercise by a home rule
22 county of powers and functions exercised by the State.


So existing and future municiapl ordniances are unaffected, while prohibiting such powers to counties.

The opinions expressed by this poster do not reflect the official stance of Illinois Carry. Apparently there was some confusion on the part of at least one person that it does, and I want to make things clear that my opinion is my own and that whatever the official stance of IC is or is not at present, it may or may not reflect my own opinion.

I'd say neutral. It doesn't seem to affect the rights of law abiding gun owners. It only affects those convicted of crimes.

I was leaning to the neutral classification, too, but for me, the more important reason is that I don't see that it really involves any new penalties--the defendant is simply warned of his being subject to gun laws that are already in place.

Isn't is ironic, among other things, that we are so quick to make sure that convicted felons are aware of what laws apply to them now that they've broken others. They're criminals, they break laws. They don't care if it's illegal to own a firearm. If they want one, they'll have it.

On the other hand, the powers that be are so quick to deny rights to law abiding folks that won't break laws, and because of that put themselves in danger perpetrated by those people who don't obey laws.

Looks to me like it strengthens one law and creates another offense to charge criminals that use stolen firearms. While it might qualify as WFFG legislation, it imposes no hardship or infringement on the rights of law abiding citizens that I see. Pass this and we can point to it as an example of the gun lobby's willingness to help pass "crime fighting legislation".

JMHO.

Since HB 3750 wouldn't change anything to do with firearms, I'm tempted to not worry about it. Careen Gordon has always been good to us, so I'm not too worried about this one.

Should read that the person for whom the Order was intended to protect be issued a .38 and a box of shells and be taught how to use them. The subject of the OOP should be informed of that fact.

Sorry, I'm in one of those moods this morning.
