Urgent Alert !


These IL Communities Could Be Voting

To Ban Your Semi-Auto Firearms!!


If you live in one of the communities listed in this alert, please attend the village/city meeting and voice your opposition to any ordinance banning firearms, firearm accessories, and/or magazines in your community!

Let's stop these bans in their tracks! Attend your city council meeting. Remember to keep your statements short and to the point. Be respectful but firm in your resolve. Remember to ask the council these two important questions:

1. What are the current statistics of these particular firearms being used in crimes in your community?

2. Does your community have the financial resources to set aside for funding a legal defense of the ban in a court challenge?

The meetings are open to the public, plan to arrive early to be sure you get a seat. If you cannot attend, please contact your council members and let them know the people in your community do not want any further infringements on their right to keep and bear arms!


Please contact your city council members and urge them to vote NO on any ordinance that would ban firearms or otherwise infringe on your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

looks like Melrose Park already has a ban: http://library.munic...?clientId=16063
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.

All it will take is one community getting this struck down in the courts, and he rest will fall like dominos. Just a matter of time, and a matter of which community it will be. Many are much 'softer' targets for litigation than Cook/Chicago, due to having less litigation defense money and being in a different court district, for the most part.

Hopefully, there is a lawsuit ready to go - asking for an injunction to prevent the law going into effect.

I see a lot of litigation coming. The court said REASONABLE and if IIRC across the state to prevent 200+ different violations as a visitor travels thru.

Will the court have any say so about these new actions?

I just posted a notice of 18 communities at CAST BOOLITS and referred all Illinois residents here.

We will spread the word far and wide.

This is crazy. The closest one to me was Oswego, and fortunately that died at the gate.


I'm sure if the criminals are paying any attention at all, they are watching and laughing.

I had to look up "Zerg Rush". Nice reference. And I think it fits. They're trying to do as much as possible all at once, without any though to it. The goal is to get all these AWB's passed before anyone can respond. When people notice, they don't like such bans.
