URGENT --

I just recieved word that Senate President John Cullerton will attempt to pass a Feinstein style Semi-auto ban and magazine ban When the Senate reconvenes for their lame duck session on the 2nd of January.

At this time we have no bill numbers, but anticipate them using house bills passed over for floor amendments which would only take a matter of hours to clear committee and be ready for a final vote.

Legislative offices are open today. You need to call your state senator and urge them to vote no on any gun bans or magazine bans.

Then call your state representative and urge them to vote no on any gun ban or magazine ban.

Call today, call Wednesday, call every day until this is defeated. More to follow as I get details.
While a 9 mm or .40 caliber bullet may or may not expand, it is an undeniable fact that a .45 caliber bullet will never shrink.

The Chicago Machine has shown time and time again they would rather pass unconstitutional laws and waste our tax dollars defending then.
That allows them to keep "the moral high ground" and say see its the courts fault now ours.

Remember to contact your reps for the PAST legislative session not the new one, or just do both.

Maybe they went out for lunch! He is pro gun!

Anywhere you are able to carry a pen you should be able to carry a sidearm.

They hate guns so much, they are willing to risk the lives of large crowds and children to feel better with their 'gun free' zones.

Me too, what's up? The springfield number works, but no one answers.

I called both, left one message (Johnson), and talked to on secretary (Pritchard).

Wrote everyone, the only person I will probably call is Representative Lapinski. I don't know if calling Mark Kirk will go anywhere. The guy just got out of rehab for the stroke he had.
When picking a firearm, you want one that is like a heavy chick. A gun that is reliable, doesn't mind getting rough, and one that goes bang every time. What's the point of having something pretty looking it isn't up for the task?

On it. Representative is Moffitt and Senator is LaHood so I'm not worried about a "yea" vote from either of them but they need to be made aware of my outrage over such a bill. Thanks for the heads-up Todd.

Those are your Federal reps you need to call your State Senator. If you don't know who he or she is, go here, enter your info and it will tell you

Called both my reps and Kirk. Durbin is experiencing "high call volumes"
Spoke to my one rep who also opposes a semi auto ban and favors concealed carry. Everyone else I had to talk to a machine :(

Call your "state" legislators, not the federal legislators at this time.

What should we say when we call. That we oppose any new gun control bills or should we be citing something specific?
