Today marks the start of the 2017 Illinois Veto Session for the Illinois Legislature. On the agenda for this session are multiple anti gun bills including a sweeping ban on many firearms and accessories in circulation, marked as a so called “Assault Weapon Ban”. Additional proposed legislation includes a ban on Bump Stock type accessories, true to the fashion of gun control advocates never letting a good tragedy go to waste. But all is not lost, you can (and must) help!
You can help block these anti freedom bills by filing witness slips now and by contacting your state representatives. Below see links to file witness slips and to find contact information for your elected official.
How to File and Illinois Witness Slip. (Text & Video)
HB4112 Bump Stock Ban – A poorly written bill which would ban devices known as bump stocks or slide fire stocks but could also inadvertently also ban firearm lubrication. Please file a witness slip in Opposition : OPPOSE HB4112
SB236 Safety Assault Weapon Ban shell bill – This Senate Amendment would ban most semi automatic firearms and many accessories. Please contact your State Senator to Oppose this Amendment.
Gun Dealer Licensing was never dead and was simply hibernating. Dancing in the blood of the victims of the Las Vegas massacre, Rep Willis is trying to revive the Gun Dealer Licensing bill. This bill places the blame for Chicago violence on the law abiding gun dealers of Illinois and if passed, would put a vast majority of gun dealers out of business.
