Southern IL Residents Alarmed About Proposed Firearm Legislation


IllinoisCarry Town Hall Meeting Scheduled for Monday, March 18, 6 p.m. in Mt. Carmel

A Second Amendment town hall meeting, sponsored by IllinoisCarry, will be held at the Anderson Building, 4-H Center Lane, Mt. Carmel on Monday, March 18th. Valinda Rowe, spokesperson for IllinoisCarry says the meeting is a result of many people expressing a need for the meeting. One of the first firearm bills proposed in the state legislature this year, SB107, has caused alarm among southern Illinois gun owners. If the bill becomes law, most semi-automatic rifles, handguns, and shotguns would become illegal to possess. Added concerns have arisen with the already enacted Gun Dealer Licensing law signed recently by Gov. Pritzker. Residents of southern Illinois are looking to their elected representatives in the Capitol and local officials for answers and possible protections from what they consider a legislative onslaught of their rights by the Democrat super majorities in the Illinois House with the full support of newly minted Gov. Pritzker. It is a perfect storm for the anti-gun Democrats up north to achieve their goal of straddling us with California style gun laws, says IllinoisCarry Spokesperson Valinda Rowe.

This meeting is designed to educate the gun owning public about what is going on and what lies ahead. Featured speakers are State Representative Darren Bailey, State Senator Dale Righter, Mike and Valinda Rowe. There will be a question and answer session.


The meeting will be held at the Anderson Building, 4-H Center Lane, Mt. Carmel, Monday, March 18, 6 p.m. and concerned citizens are encourage to attend.

They ought to be alarmed!

 

Still proud to be a DEMOCRAT?!

Maybe if the REST of the state went Republican we might have a fighting chance!

I'm neither Republican or Democrat. The problem is PROGRESSIVE politics. These traitors to the Constitution and country are the problem. While many progressive politicians fly the flags for Democrat party, we've got a few in leadership on the Republican side as well.

That said, divisive language and infighting is the intent and purpose of progressive politics. We can't be divided. Let's please stop improperly identifying the problem, and rebuild the bridges among the patriots of both parties.

Preventing Gun Violence

With 33,000 Americans dying every year, Democrats believe that we must finally take sensible action to address gun violence. While responsible gun ownership is part of the fabric of many communities, too many families in America have suffered from gun violence. We can respect the rights of responsible gun owners while keeping our communities safe. To build on the success of the lifesaving Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, we will expand and strengthen background checks and close dangerous loopholes in our current laws; repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) to revoke the dangerous legal immunity protections gun makers and sellers now enjoy; and keep weapons of war—such as assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines (LCAM’s)—off our streets. We will fight back against attempts to make it harder for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to revoke federal licenses from law breaking gun dealers, and ensure guns do not fall into the hands of terrorists, intimate partner abusers, other violent criminals, and those with severe mental health issues. There is insufficient research on effective gun prevention policies, which is why the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention must have the resources it needs to study gun violence as a public health issue.

The Second Amendment:Our Right to Keep and Bear Arms  (Top)

We uphold the right of individuals to keep and bear arms, a natural inalienable right that predates the Constitution and is secured by the Second Amendment. Lawful gun ownership enables Americans to exercise their God-given right of self-defense for the safety of their homes, their loved ones, and their communities.

We salute the Republican Congress for defending the right to keep and bear arms by preventing the President from installing a new liberal majority on the Supreme Court. The confirmation to the Court of additional anti-gun justices would eviscerate the Second Amendment’s fundamental protections. Already, local officials in the nation’s capital and elsewhere are defying the Court’s decisions upholding an individual right to bear arms as affirmed by the Supreme Court in Heller and McDonald. We support firearm reciprocity legislation to recognize the right of law-abiding Americans to carry firearms to protect themselves and their families in all 50 states. We support constitutional carry statutes and salute the states that have passed them. We oppose ill-conceived laws that would restrict magazine capacity or ban the sale of the most popular and common modern rifle. We also oppose any effort to deprive individuals of their right to keep and bear arms without due process of law.

We condemn frivolous lawsuits against gun manufacturers and the current Administration’s illegal harassment of firearm dealers. We oppose federal licensing or registration of law-abiding gun owners, registration of ammunition, and restoration of the ill-fated Clinton gun ban. We call for a thorough investigation — by a new Republican administration — of the deadly “Fast and Furious” operation perpetrated by Department of Justice officials who approved and allowed illegal sales of guns to known violent criminals.

Great turn out last night in Wabash County - full house!  An added surprise was the announcement by the Wabash County Board had just come from a meeting to discuss passing the Second Amendemnt county resolution.  They are working on wording so we'll need to keep a close eye on what the final language.

 

Wabash Co. State's attorney did not attend or respond to phone calls or emails.  It is reported she does not support what the pro2A state's attorneys are doing. The Wabash Co. Sheriff Derek Morgan made a statement that county residents do not have to worry about his officers confiscating banned firearms.  Kudos to Sheriff Morgan!
