Gun Day Wednesday In Illinois

A number of gun related bills may be acted upon today in the Illinois General Assembly. Both Illinois Carry and the Illinois State Rifle Association have issued alerts. Speaker Mike Madigan has a number of “shell” bills which can, and probably will, be filled up with anti-gun legislation. It is time to call your state rep and state senator if you live in Illinois.

From ISRA:

Monday, these Mike Madigan shell bills
from last year were given new life, as Mike Madigan’s gun grabbing
minions fulfill their mission to be pawns in Madigan’s “Gun Day”
Wednesday, TODAY February 28 by giving each of the shell bills a
brand-new anti-gun amendment The bills are HB1465, HB1467, HB1468,HB1469
and HB1664, and they all passed out of the House Judiciary Committee on
a partisan 8 to 5 vote.

The bills are:
HB1465 – Shell bill turned into Semi-auto age restriction and ban – Michelle Mussman

HB1467 – Bans a Bump Stock and bans any firearm modifications – Marty Moylan

HB1468 – Sets a three day waiting period for purchase of a semi-auto rifle – Jonathan Carroll

– Magazine Ban – Also bans protective safety clothing, like meat
carvers’ gloves and steel-toe boots and body armor. – Dan Burke

And finally, commented on by ISRA Lobbyists and select Law
Enforcement insiders as the worst written legislation ever seen in
HB1664 – Establishes an anonymous tip line to bring SWAT teams to your home to scoop up you and your firearm.   Deb Conroy

Remember that all of these legislators are beholden to Madigan to
carry these bills, or they get no campaign “support” for the fall.  But
these representatives already hate that you have the freedom to own
firearms, so for them this is no stretch.  They want to take that
freedom away, they have been awaiting the opportunity.

Please call your Illinois State Representatives today, starting at
8:30 am and ask that they oppose all these bills.  Don’t stop there,
tell your neighbors and friends about this attack on our freedom, let
them know to make the calls as well.

Please use the link below to identify and get contact information for
your Illinois State Representative and Illinois State Senator, then
keep that information handy.  There are now floor fights on several
fronts in Springfield in attempts to take away your gun rights, you will
be asked to call your legislators several times this week.
