Friday Will Be Last Day For Towns In Illinois To Ban Guns

With the override of the amendatory veto of HB 183, the clock is ticking for towns and cities in Illinois who want to impose their own semi-auto firearm restrictions. The bill gave Illinois municipalities 10 days after its passage to have these ordinances in place or forever forego them.

From the alert below from the Illinois State Rifle Association, it appears that a number of cities and towns in and around Cook County are racing to get them in place before the deadline.

From the ISRA alert:

URGENT ALERT – Will your town try to ban your rifle this
week?

Attend one of these meetings!

Monday Night Meetings to
Ban Guns:
Evanston Lake Zurich Morton Grove*
Darien Clarendon Hills Thornton
Waukegan Gurnee Flossmoor
River Forest Lake Forest Steger
Buffalo Grove Batavia University Park

Tuesday Night Meetings to Ban Guns:
Lincolnwood Winnetka

Thursday Night Meetings to Ban Guns:
Morton Grove** Palos Hills Hanover Park





Here is the current status:  The Illinois CCW
act has been passed into law by an override of the
governor’s veto on July 9.  The 10-day window
for municipalities for enact their own local
semi-auto bans expires on July 19.

In a last-ditch effort to solve to a non-existent
problem, Cook County and collar county communities
are going to show that they can get tough on crime
by coming down hard on the law-abiding citizens who
choose to own popular semi-automatic firearms.

Are you tired of hearing about attempts to take away
your firearms?
Here is what you need to
do:

1. No matter where you live, plan to be at one of
the meetings listed below. Be sure to bring a friend
or two along with you.

2. Wear IGOLD or NRA hats and/or teeshirts.

3. Be prepared to vigorously defend your rights.

4. If you see media there, approach them and tell
them that you are a law-abiding Illinois firearm
owner and that you do not support gun bans.

5. Be sure to get to the meeting site at least 45
minutes early so you will get a seat. We need to
make our voices heard.

6. Pass this alert on to you friends and family and
tell them to attend meetings too.

7. Post this to all forums to which you belong.
