UPDATED TO INCLUDE SB201 WILDLIFE LEAD AMMUNITION, proposing to ban the use of traditional ammunition for hunting. While the bill does allow for ISP to provide lead free ammo at no or reduced cost, this provision is not required and is subject to available funding, meaning none.


 

 

 

They're Back, and They Brought Some Friends

 

Our last alert cast a light on four bills threatening our rights in Illinois, as well as four bills promoting our rights. While these bills had been on the 2/13/2019 committee schedule for possible hearings, committee action is rarely guaranteed. These bills, along with several more, have now been added to the 2/19/2019 schedule to potentially be heard. This process may continue for several weeks.

 

Please join us this week in filing witness slips on the 12 bills listed below, even if you filed slips before. Each hearing brings the need to assert ourselves again, to protect and promote our rights.

 

In addition to the original bills we ask for opposition to:

 

HB1467 FOID – Records- Ammunition Sales, a registry of ammunition sales by type and amount

 

HB1586 Handgun Ammo – Serialize, and registry of actual rounds sold

 

We ask your support for:

 

HB1489 Firearm Registy Prohibition, prohibiting a firearm registry, and

 

HB1574 Concealed Carry – Expiration, a bill reiterating the need to provide the full term of licensure that was paid for

 

 

 

Please continue to contact your Illinois State House Members regarding these bills, and file the witness slips linked to below.

 

 

Remember to log in to your account first, if you have one!

Thanks. We were hoping it would make things easier.


We're getting late word that these bills probably will be sent to subcommittee this time. That was the word for the last hearing too, and it didn't pan out that way, but we might skip an email alert this time around.  

 

It can't hurt to file slips so if you're in the mood, go right ahead.  But if you need a break from these things, this is a good time to take it.

TREMENDOUS JOB Mauserme!! 
 
I can understand just how much has to be done to get the links in. I hope you have a semi-automated procedure that you can copy and paste to make it a bit easier!!
 
 
I would make one SMALL suggestion to be added eventually, make the LOGON link quite prominent with BIG letters  at the center top of the stack, and the create new account  in small letters right underneath it.

Filling out the witness slip is easy this way. But it you are reading the "bill" there is a "witness slips" button towards the top, you can see the list of names but how do you get to where you fill out a new one from that page? Very confusing. It would be nice to read their bs proposal, see who's onboard with it and then fill out a slip. I'm registered and I can't figure out how to navagate that mess of a website.

I can never find the way to get to the witness slip page from my login... Just can't seem to find the link or how to do it.

Mauserme has automated the process and made it very easy!!

There's no direct way from that link to file a slip. You have to go in from GA Dashboard on the ILGA homepage.

The interesting thing about the link you're speaking of is that it shows all of the witness slips filed on the bill, even for hearings that didn't actually occur.  Some people think witness slips "get dumped" but, if by "dumped" they mean discarded, they're wrong.  Those slips have become part of the legislative record along with the current witness slips.
