Illinois Legislator Trying to Ban Guns, Weapons & Gun Ranges by January 9th

Gun DisplayGun owners throughout Illinois need to be aware of what’s happening right now. Late last night Illinois Senate Democrats pushed through last-minute legislation that will ban semiautomatic weapons, shut down gun ranges and ban all high-capacity magazines. The bills, HB815 and HB1263, would ban 80% of all guns in Illinois.

The legislation is being pushed thorough in the final weeks of the Illinois Legislators lame duck session, so this legislation is expected to move extremely fast. Many of the politicians who are pushing this bill have nothing to lose, since many of them were voted out of office in November.

If these two last-minute anti-gun bills manage to make their way through the state legislator, most Illinois ranges could be forced out of business; ALL semiautomatic rifles, pistols and shotguns will be banned; and all pump shotguns and rifles will be illegal.

Last night a Senate committee approved two bills; one that would ban the possession, delivery, sale and transfer of semiautomatic handguns and rifles, the other would limit ammunition magazines to 10 or fewer rounds.

The Illinois National Rifle Association says these bills would ban about 80% of the guns on the market.

    Sounds pretty scary, i’m in Canada and if some deranged mind tries to go on a shooting spree there is nothing standing in the way. Wait for the police to come count the bodies including the shooter who killed himself. Rumor has it they are coming for your guns and end result civil war.

      I along with MILLIONS more will not comply with any more gun ban laws. We are sick and tired of this manure. I will never give up my guns without the fight first. The gov had better back up and explore this situation a little more with different senarios before they proceed any farther on this ban bill. We will never comply.

    The problem i find with most people today is when i tell them they need to write there local gov about there concerns on gun control I get the same response almost every time. Your crazy they could never do this it would cause a civil war. Well wake up people because they pushed obama care down your throat. Then I get the if they do I’m not turning them in. Yeah right what are people going to do when armed federal agents knock on your front door and ask you for your guns. I can tell you 95% will give them up. People need to remember what the 2nd amendment is there for and if they dont start standing up for it they will wake up one day and it will be gone forever. Also all you hunters and bolt action people think there just coming for the so called assault weapons your wrong they want them all. Google Diane fienstien or look at youtube and find out for yourself straight from the horse’s mouth. Our gun rights are not to be infringed on and that means all guns. Please people I’ve served in the us army and been to countries where there are no gun rights and seen with my own 2eyes just what local police get away with you would be fighting for them even if you don’t like guns or not. So i ask every person to do what is right for America and wake all the sheepels you know and if they don’t want to wake up then you know you did the best you could do. God bless to all and prey for our country

    Sounds like a good time for gun owners to find a new state to live and spend their hard earned money. I will no longer buy anything from any business in Illinois.

    WE the people and the 2nd amendment were designed and enacted to protect us from an unlawful government, looks like our forefathers knew what was needed to be written down for us to use as a legal tool to protect our way of life, that so many have fought and died for. It has become such a sad place when so many have forgotten where and how we became AMERICA.

    They won’t come knocking on your door to take your guns. They won’t because they know it will be a bloodbath and the local law enforcement and Nat’l Guard won’t stand for it and will turn on the gov’t thugs. Instead they’re going to do it all quiet like and sneaky.

    The gov’t will pass a law banning guns and offer a generous gun buy back, and you’ll have to turn them in within a certain period of time. After that, you’ll see “DUI” or “Gang Task Force” checkpoints. You’ll be stopped, and your ID run through the system. If you haven’t turned in all your guns, they will arrest you on the spot and you’ll never be heard from again. All your friends and family will know is that you’ve been arrested for terrorism. You’ll be sent to an internment re-education camp. If you think I’m exagerating or some type of nut, think again. They’ve already started therse types of checkpoints on the states bordering Mexico. They’ve already got camps in the works. You can google and find Army Manual FM 3-39.40 (Feb 2010) INTERNMENT AND RESETTLEMENT OPERATIONS, where it clearly speaks of armed conflict within the US, and “re-education”.

    That’s all we need, people with guns who can’t hit their target because they haven’t had practice and hit and kill innocent people around them because the government shut down their only chance to be proficient with a gun.
