That's probably for the best. Smaller businesses aren't going to be able to afford to hire security. Better to keep that problem out of the rest of the state.

Unless HJRCA18 also gets rid of "Subject only to the police power," will it have any teeth?

The US Constitution provides broader protection on its face than the State Constitution, meaning the additional language of the State Constitution is meaningless and essential outdated and unenforceable window dressing. That wasnt necessarily the case when it was originally written, but it has been since the 2nd Amendment decisions a decade or so ago. What would be effective is to craft the State Constitution language to expressly provide more rights than the Federal. But that would never pass with the current makeup of the legislature. In other words, this effectively will do nothing, because it has no shot of passing.

Based on the Slaughter-house Cases (1872), the US Constitution only protects rights from infringement by the Federal government, not state or local governments. States could "selectively incorporate" portions of those protected rights into their state constitutions. (They can also protect rights that are not protected by the US Constitution, although none have.) Since 1872, the US Supreme Court has been rolling back the decision of the Slaughter-house Cases one Amendment at a time. Supposedly Heller and McDonald addressed selective incorporation for the 2A, but some states and lower courts still resist.

 

Additionally, the IL State Supreme Court judges constitutionality relative the the state constitution.

 

So the state constitution is not irrelevant.

Which is why I followed up that one sentence you quoted with “That wasn’t necessarily the case when it was originally written, but it has been since the 2nd Amendment decisions a decade ago”. Lower Courts make wrong decisions all the time, but it’s pretty clear that the USSC had incorporated the 2A.

 

The ILSC has also read the State Amendment in lockstep with the Federal interpretation of the 2A. So, yes, the extra language in the State constitution is in generally irrelevant now. But it makes for nice sound bites to rile up the masses. Guess we will have to agree to disagree.

The idiocy of some legislators continues to amaze me at times. Not just introducing stuff like this, but doing to so every two years, even after being shown how stupid their legislation is.

 

HB 3039, however, I would keep an eye on. Language like that, which adds more responsibilities onto an agency, is going to inevitably invite further discussion of fee increases. And this bill was filed by a suburban Republican.

Harmon introduced his dealer licensing bill every session, tried to push it through year after year. For 15 years?

 

Then a farging APPOINTED Republican State Senator by the name of Tom Rooney voted for it and suddenly it was past the hurdle and running. ( A GREAT Republican Senator, Murphy, resigned, opening the door for that unspeakable appointment)

 

Rooney paid the price politically, and we the citizens of Illinoid will continue to pay the price until we overturn that abomination.

Actually I should rephrase that last part. What I meant was that, given the incorporation by the USSC in Heller, the ILSC would almost certainly read the State Constitution in lockstep with the 2A. The alternative would be to not interpret it that way, which could only result in decisions that granted more rights than an incorporated 2A. The ILSC, at least in its current and long foreseeable future, will not do that.

Ammunition serialization - the manufacturer imprints a serial number unique to each bullet on each bullet

"Microstamping" - the firearm imprints a serial number unique to each firearm on each expended shell

 

Considering that these bills specify that it's illegal to own or transfer firearms and ammunition that does not comply with the law and that no technology exists to comply with the law, doesn't that mean that it will be illegal to own any firearm or ammunition?

 

I realize that some legislators would be okay with effectively banning all firearms and ammunition, but (for those who may think these requirements are reasonable) do they also think that specifying January 2022 as the effective date will make the technology magically appear and be universally implemented because they command it?
